Former India cricketer and one of the greatest batters, Sachin Tendulkar, has spoken on Shubman Gill’s career in Test cricket. The right-handed batter impressed everyone in Australia but has only shown his talent in patches when it comes to home soil.
Sachin feels Shubman has the technique to succeed in South Africa. He also noted that Gill does not have any technical flaws.
“When it comes to technique, different surfaces will test you differently. I think Shubman has an advantage as he played a very crucial innings (91) in Brisbane where we won the Test match,” he said.
“He has had the experience of playing on hard and bouncy tracks, and I felt that he looked pretty comfortable. So, I don’t think there is any technical issue as such,” he added.
Gill is yet to score a Test hundred. Speaking on the issue, Tendulkar said: “Shubman has started well and shown a lot of promise. The way he builds his innings, he has been good so far. Just that he needs to go further and convert those 40s into big scores.”
