“It’s happening all the time” ex-Pakistan captain says of Shubman Gill’s batting. Shubman Gill missed his half-century by seven runs in the second ODI against West Indies on Sunday, according to the ex-international batter.
Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt stated that Indian opener Shubman Gill must extend his innings. Butt went on to say that the player should score a lot of runs because he has a lot of talent. The ex-international batter made the remarks after falling seven runs short of his half-century in the second ODI of India’s three-match series against the West Indies on Sunday. Notably, Gill got a bottom edge of his bat on Kyle Mayers’ delivery while attempting to play a scoop shot. Mayers easily completed the follow-up catch to claim his wicket.
