AB de Villiers said Indian opener Shubman Gill will be the highest run-getter in the ICC World Cup 2023. He opined that being an opening batter, Gill has a significant chance of leading the batting charts in the global tournament.
“Shubman Gill will score the most runs in the World Cup. He is in good form and I am always going to be with the opener,” he said.
“Shubman Gill is in sublime form and I can’t overelook him. He is a great player, with a good technique. I know there will be pressure but he is my pick,” he added.
De Villiers further said that Gill’s ability to change gears depending on the situation will make things difficult for the bowlers.
“He picks up the length early. He is still young but looks like an expereineced player already.”
