Shubman Gill’s debut didn’t go well as he was dismissed for 19 runs. The right hand batsman was highly recommended by former cricketers and current Indian skipper Virat Kohli. Former Indian skipper Sunil Gavaskar wanted Men in Blue to try Gill in the last two ODIs. Despite his failure in his brief maiden innings in international cricket, Gavaskar feels he has a future with Team India.

“Well, for whatever little time he was there, he was a little bit tense, nervous. That’s understandable because he is playing for the country for the first time,” Gavaskar told Star Sports.

“Even then, when Boult was swinging the ball, he was able to get in line, yes… he was hit by the short ball as well. I think this guy’s got a future, you have got to be patient with him.

“My feeling is that they’ll probably have Dhoni coming in place of Karthik. Other changes will be based on the conditions in Wellington. I don’t see too many changes though. I am sure Shubman Gill will get another opportunity,” Gavaskar said.
