Shubman Gill is ready for global cricket, reckons MSK Prasad

Shubman Gill is ready for global cricket, reckons MSK Prasad

Even the BCCI Twitter handle couldn't resist posting a video comparing a short arm jab from Kohli to a similar shot executed by Gill in the tournament.

Vijay Shankar will play in the ODI series in Australia, starting from the second match in Adelaide on January 15, while Gill will join Vijay Shankar for the five-match ODI and three-match T20I series in New Zealand.

This time a year ago, Gill was on his way to becoming Man of the Tournament in India's victorious Under-19 World Cup run. "I think batting at No. 7 was new to me, and I learnt a lot of things", Gill says. "Whatever I learn, I try and put it into practice in the nets", the youngster added.

Gill's recent form has been stupendous.

"You are just watching and observing how they move as I said I am a little from the black side (influenced by West Indies culture) so I have to see how they (women) move first", he said.

His highest score of 57* in the tournament came at a crucial time when his team was chasing a stiff 178-run target against Chennai Super Kings.

In his second Ranji Trophy season, Shubman has scored two centuries including a doubleton and two half-centuries. "Grinding it out in domestic cricket has improved my game enormously", said Gill.

Speaking on his maiden call-up in the national side, Shubman Gill said, "It was a surprise call-up for me".

Talking to Sportskeeda in an exclusive chat about his call-up, Shubman said, "I was about to sleep at night and I suddenly got a storm of messages on WhatsApp from my friends and reporters".

Gill's first innings upon return from India A's tour of New Zealand in December was a monumental 268 against Tamil Nadu. India's U-19 World Cup hero Shubman Gill replaced KL Rahul in the team for the New Zealand tour.

He also related a story about a party he attended where he pointed to multiple women and then told his parents, "I have something going on with each of them".

Possessing a penchant for scoring the big hundreds at a fair clip, Gill has already slammed 1529 runs in 36 List A games at an average of 47.78 with seven fifties and four hundreds.

"I am deeply influenced by Rahul Sir". The duo won't take part in the tour of New Zealand as well. He batted really well, a century in your very first innings, that too in worldwide cricket... "He ensured my batting evolved and got better".
