Former India head coach Ravi Shastri heaped praise on young batter Shubman Gill after Gujarat Titans defeated Delhi Capitals by 14 runs to maintain their perfect start to the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. The 22-year-old was out for a duck in GT’s first match of the season, but he responded with a brilliant knock against DC to help his team post 170/6 against a strong bowling attack. Ravi Shastri described him as a “pure talent” and one of the most talented cricketers in India and the world.
Ravi Shastri: “GT Star Shubman Gill One Of The Most Talented Players In World Cricket.”
“He is a natural talent. To be honest, that guy is one of the most talented players in this country and in the world of cricket “Shastri told host broadcasters Star Sports following Gill’s 84-run knock against DC.
“He’ll score once he gets going, and he makes it look easy. He has the punch, the time, and the power to clear the ground “He went on to say.
“He was created specifically for this game format. It’s just his shot selection and strike rotation, which he mentioned himself. There were very few dot balls today, which relieved him of some of the pressure. And he’s the one who’ll take care of the bad balls “He stated.
Gill faced only six dot balls during his 46-ball innings.
“He’s very good at the short ball, as evidenced by the short-arm jab he used in this inning. And this will do wonders for his self-esteem “Shastri commented on his knock.
This was Gill’s highest-ever T20 score.
Lockie Ferguson was the Titans’ standout bowler, taking four wickets, including Rishabh Pant, while Mohammed Shami struck twice in the 18th over as DC could only muster 157/9 in their chase.
