The Gujarat Titans batter was extremely pleased with his knock against RCB. Gill said that he is happy that these knocks are coming in the business end of the tournament. The 23-year-old also talked about being ready for the challenge against Chennai Super Kings. Notably, CSK and GT will lock horns in Qualifier 1 at Chepauk Stadium. 

“I am in good form, it’s about getting a start and then converting it into a big one. In the first half of the IPL, I was missing out on those big ones. I was getting a lot of 40s and 50s. Thankfully, it’s all working out for me in the business end of the IPL,” said Gill. 

“It’s going to be an exciting one, playing against Chennai in Chennai. We have got a great bowling attack for that wicket in particular and hopefully we’ll make it to the final for the second time,” the GT opener added.
