When they asked me where I wanted to bat, I replied that number three would be best: Shubman Gill

Gill stated, "I want to consolidate in this position."

Shubman Gill, a gifted young batter, is expected to fill the number three spot, which was formerly occupied by the acclaimed Cheteshwar Pujara, which is a huge development for the Indian cricket squad.

Gill told the team management that he wanted to bat at number three because he had primarily played that position for Punjab in domestic cricket. Fortunately for him, the administration concurred, and Gill is anxious to establish the team's batting order from this crucial position.

The team management asked me where I wanted to bat, and I answered I wanted No. 3, Gill stated in a recent interview with local broadcasters before of the first Test between India and the West Indies in Dominica. I wish to consolidate in this position.

Playing with a new ball is always beneficial. When you're batting at No. 3, it's not all that different, despite there being a slight change, according to my experience with the new ball, Gill said.

In 2023, Gill has already had an exceptional year, showcasing his talent with standout performances, such as a double century in ODIs, a first-century in T20Is, and finishing with 300 runs to lead the IPL.

Gill expressed his appreciation for the time he had with his family and the chance to travel to new cricketing locations like Barbados and Dominica while thinking back on the team's break following the WTC final
