Shubman Gill is touted as the next big thing in the Indian cricket team. Gill is being considered as the latest prodigy of India’s decorated batting production line. The right-hander made a global statement during the 2018 U19 Wrld Cup as he helped India clinch their fourth U19 title.
Gill, who was the vice-captain of the Indian contingent, smashed a whopping 418 runs at an average of 104.50. The unprecedented success in the ICC event resulted in the batter becoming the hot favorite for the franchises in the Indian Premier League 2018 auction. It was two-time champion Kolkata Knight Riders who won the bidding war as they picked the batsman at a staggering amount of INR 1.8 crore.
In his short stint in the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Gill has emerged as a lynchpin for the franchise. The 22-year-old has a stunning 1141 runs to his credit in 51 IPL matches at an average of 30 and a strike rate of 125.4. The much-awaited debut for the Punjab-born in the Indian colors came in 2019 when he played a One Day International against New Zealand.
Though Shubman Gill is a prominent name in India’s domestic circuit and has the best technique among his colleagues, the youngster is yet to prove his credential on the highest stage. He has so far represented India in 8 Test matches and three One Day Internationals scoring 414 and 49 runs at an average of 31.8 and 16.3 respectively.
Shubman Gill’s Girlfriend
The young opening batter Shubman Gill has often made headlines for his personal life. The 22-year-old has repeatedly revealed that he is currently single and just wants to focus on his cricket career. However, the cricket fans often link Gill with former Indian captain Sachin Tendulkar’s daughter Sara Tendulkar.
The two follow each other on Instagram and are often seen making comments on each other’s posts. The Instagram battle between Sara and Shubman just adds fuel to their dating rumors. However, the two are always tight-lipped about the same.
