Indian Cricket team’s Vice-Captain Rohit Sharma has praised youngster Shubman Gill and termed him as the future star of the side. According to Rohit, the right-handed batter has a lot of capability to establish himself in the national team.
“I think Shubman is a fluent batsman. He is a future of Indian cricket. Whenever he gets a consistent run, he will get confidence run, he will get confidence. He has a good domestic record. I think we should look to bring him into the side. There is a lot of competition in the side, ” Rohit said during an Instagram Live session with spinner Harbhajan Singh.
Harbhajan Singh also affirmed that Gill was picked in the Test series against New Zealand in the absence of injured Rohit.
“We lost in New Zealand. Prithvi Shaw made a comeback. He was out of the side, but you guys backed him. I think someone like Shubman Gill should have been given a chance in New Zealand Test series. If Rohit was injured, I think Shubman should have played because he was there in the squad, ” said Harbhajan.
The master spinner also praised middle-order batsman Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul, to play well for the team after getting regular chances.
“Shreyas Iyer played two matches, but then he was dropped when he was given regular chances and the results are there in front of us. It is good to see someone being given regular chances in the side, Shreyas was the player of the new Zealand tour for me, KL is also batting beautifully, apart from Virat and Rohit, KL Rahul is the strongest contender of being the match-winner, ” said Harbhajan.
