Shubman Gill was in the top groove in the third ODI between India and Zimbabwe, with the right-handed batter scoring 130 runs to lead the team’s charge. His teammate Axar Patel revealed that Gill is not serious when he is not batting. At the post-match press conference, all-rounder Axar spoke to the media.
“Itna serious nahi hai, jab batting karta hai toh serious ho jaata hai (He is not a serious guy, but when he bats, he takes things seriously). He jokes with all the guys but gets along well with Ishan Kishan and Avesh Khan,” said Axar.
Earlier, Gill spoke about his dot ball percentage and what he has done to reduce it.
“I am taking singles and doubles to reduce the dot ball percentage. I have made it a point to rotate the strike when I am at the crease,” said Gill.
Having played 9 ODIs so far, Shubman has scored 499 runs at a stunning average of 71.28.
