This year, Shubman Gill was recalled to the Indian one-day international team, and he has made the most of his opportunities, earning the Player of the Series title in both the matches against the West Indies and the matches against Zimbabwe. Gill has hit three half-centuries and a century over the six matches he has played against the Windies and Zimbabwe.
In the third one-day international against the West Indies, he could have scored another hundred runs as well, but rain put a damper on things and left him stuck on 98. Former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris stated that the 22-year-old has “a massive career in front of him” and that he is putting pressure on experienced opener Shikhar Dhawan. This statement was made in light of the fact that the World Cup would be held in India in the following year.
In response to the topic of whether or not Gill has the potential to become India’s first-choice opener, Styris was quoted on Sports18 as saying, “That is such a challenging question and the reason I say that is because you’ve got four or five players who could all open up and do a tremendous job.”
At the moment, the opening pair of Captain Rohit Sharma and Dhawan is considered to be the best option.
“The question that arises for you is whether you simply go with whoever is performing the best at that particular time, or whether their previous accomplishments have any bearing on the outcome. What contributions have they made to the ICC proceedings? All of these factors must be taken into account in the calculation “Styris continued by saying.
“I believe that he has a significant amount of potential ahead of him for this Indian team. Therefore, that is the correct response. Shikhar Dhawan is feeling the heat as a result of his actions “what he had to say about Gill.
However, Styris made the observation that Dhawan is in a better position than Gill.
“Does he go above and beyond what they have done? My impression is that they continue to favour the option to play left-handed. Shikhar Dhawan has an advantage because there aren’t many top-order left-handers in Indian cricket who are taking the game by the scruff of the neck as an opener. Because of this, Shikhar Dhawan has something going for him, so maybe Shubman Gill needs to bide his time a little bit, or as we saw earlier, number 3 might be a spot for him “he said.
