In their current five-game Test series against England, Team India had an outstanding performance in the second Test. After losing the first Test, the Rohit Sharma-led team leveled the series by making significant progress in Vizag.
Shubman Gill, who hit 104 runs in 147 deliveries, was one of the game’s shining performers. He made sure that India set a lofty goal for England to pursue. It’s important to note that after some poor performances, the 24-year-old came under intense criticism.
Gill was praised as an “incredible player” by former South African cricketer AB de Villiers for his impressive performance, which he delivered under duress. According to De Villiers, Gill’s talent is evident in his knock.
“He (Gill) just demonstrated the young man’s amazing character when he visited Vizag. What a fantastic player! You can see how talented he is, even though I’m not sure if he’s improved his technique or anything. “That was a telling hundred in the second innings of a big Test match, and let me tell you, that was the difference between the two sides,” AB de Villiers posted on his YouTube account.
Ben Stokes had a slight upset, and with good reason: AB de Villiers
Additionally, AB de Villiers discussed the contentious LBW dismissal of English batsman Zak Crawley. The former South African batter stated that Ben Stokes’s frustration with the situation was reasonable after a brief period of time during which many believed the DRS had made a mistake in dismissing Crawley.
“After examining it, I sense that it is not striking the leg stump (Crawley LBW). The umpire would eventually make the call if it simply clipped or touched the outside of the leg stump. Although technology has improved decision accuracy, care must be taken to ensure that the cameras are positioned such that they are parallel to the center stump at both ends and not at an angle. According to De Villiers, Ben Stokes was understandably a little miffed.
