India ICC trophies
Akmal feels a good team is judged by the way they play cricket and the way they develop cricketers.

Former India selector Saba Karim has praised Shubman Gil for his form in one-day internationals. He feels Gill can carry forward the legacy of Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli and become the backbone of the batting unit. The veteran added that Gill would have to prove himself in overseas conditions.

“He has a good temperament and can carry the legacy of Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli. The biggest test would be in overseas conditions. Gill’s track record in England was not good when he played in Tests. I hope he becomes the backbone of the batting unit in the future,” Saba Karim told India News.

“We are seeing a batter of high caliber after a long time. In the future, we must check his performances against the top teams. We have to test him in challenging conditions and quality pace bowling units, but he has taken a good start.”

The 23-year-old scored 360 runs in the three-match series against New Zealand, which India won 3-0. Gill’s last six scores read – 112, 40*, 208, 116, 21, and 70.

In 2022, Gill accumulated 638 runs in 12 ODIs at an average of 70.89, including a hundred and four fifties.
