Shubman Gill Has The Temperament To Become A Great Player: Sunil Gavaskar

Former Indian batsman Sunil Gavaskar has praised his fellow countryman Shubhman Gill, backing him to become an outstanding player in the future.

Following his innings in the ongoing ICC World Test Championship final against New Zealand as an opener, He also believes GIll has the temperament to become a great player.

Shubman Gill played a promising knock of 28 in swinging and overcast conditions and built a partnership of 62 with Rohit Sharma.

The openers lasted more than 20 overs against the likes of Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, Trent Boult, and Colin de Grandhome.

After Kyle Jamieson struck first blood to dismiss Rohit Sharma, Gill perished soon after in Neil Wagner’s third ball of his opening spell.

Neil Wagner delivered the ball just outside off-stump and Shubman Gill responded by playing a defensive push.

However, the ball did not swing as much as he expected and thereby, took an outside edge through to the keeper, BJ Watling.

Nevertheless, his 64-ball stay invited plenty of praises as he played some authoritative shots.

“He has the temperament to become a great player. The first hundred is always the toughest one because that journey from scoring a half-century to reaching three figures is not that easy. Batsmen tend to feel settled somewhere around 70-80 run mark and start taking the bowlers on and lose their wicket in that way. He just needs to get his first hundred and then a lot more will follow,” Gavaskar told in the commentary box.
