On Shubman Gill’s Poor Twenty20 International Form, Gautam Gambhir’s Huge Statement Regarding Prithvi Shaw

Although many people have referred to Shubman Gill as the “future of Indian batting,” he has not been able to make the same kind of impact for India in Twenty20 cricket as he has in One-Day International cricket.

After yet another poor performance at the top for the national team, former India opener Gautam Gambhir has issued a veiled warning to Gill, stating that the player still “hasn’t found his feet in T20 format.” This warning comes after Gill’s team had yet another poor showing at the top for the national team.

Another opportunity for Gill to become a significant member of the Indian side was lost when he was dismissed after scoring only 11 runs off of 9 balls.

Gambhir brought up how difficult it has been for Shubman to compete against spin bowling after the completion of the second Twenty20 international against New Zealand.

The right-handed batter was strongly encouraged to enhance their ability to handle spinners, particularly on turning wickets, by the commentator.

On a wicket that spins, I believe that Shubman Gill needs to improve his performance against spin. Even more so than the rest of the team, he struggled against Bangladesh.

Yes, he has been very successful in the 50-over format, which has fantastic wickets to bat on and five fielders inside the circle. However, you need to improve your performance when the ball starts spinning, gripping, and bouncing as well.

“He won’t just face seam bowling, but spin bowling as well,” Gambhir stated on Star Sports about the upcoming match.

Gambhir is of the opinion that Gill’s “fundamental game” is better suited for one-day international cricket than twenty-20. On the other hand, Prithvi Shaw is a player whose “fundamental game” is more suited to the shortest format than other players’ games are.

When it comes to participating in international cricket, “He still hasn’t found his feet in the Twenty20 format. It’s necessary to play at a different tempo every once in a while. His fundamental game is well-suited to the 50-over format. Someone like Prithvi Shaw, whose game is based mostly on instinct, is ideal for Twenty20 cricket.

Shubman Gill is an individual whose fundamental game is ideally suited for the 50-over format. “Whether or not he will be able to play all three formats will be determined by how quickly he learns and adjusts to this format,” Gambhir stated.

The total number of runs that Shubman has scored in the first two Twenty20 Internationals that have been played against New Zealand is only 18. In contrast, he had scored more over 350 runs in the three one-day international matches played against the same opponents.
