Former Indian player Aakash Chopra has compared Shubman Gill‘s IPL 2023 performance to Virat Kohli‘s 2016 display, where he accumulated 973 runs for Royal Challengers Bangalore. The team made it to the final but lost to SRH.
On the other hand, Gill smashed 890 runs in the Indian Premier League 2023. The right-hand batter hit 3 hundreds and 5 fifties at an average of 59.33.
“Gill was trilling and had a wow season. He is no longer a prince as he has become a king after IPL 2023. The domination we saw from Kohli in 2016. This was that kind of a season,” said Aakash.
“He just kept going. He didn’t do anything wrong. The Narendra Modi Stadium is a huge stadium and the guy was hitting sixes there,” he added.
