Two-time World Cup winner Yuvraj Singh has made a big prediction about Shubman Gill. He feels Gill is a strong contender to play for India in the 2023 World Cup.
Shubman opened for India in the ODI series against New Zealand but was not included in the squad for one-day internationals in Bangladesh.
In 12 fifty-over games, he has scored 638 runs at an average of 70.88, including a century and four fifties. Gill scored a fifty in the first ODI against the Kiwis and 45 not out in the second.
“Shubman Gill is doing well and performing consistently. He is a strong contender to open for India in the 2023 World Cup,” Yuvraj was quoted as saying by the news agency PTI.
Yuvraj has played a big role in Gill’s career. During the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020, Shubman stayed with Yuvraj and trained under him alone with Abhishek Sharma.
“Gill works hard and is doing all the things right. He will become one of the great batters in the next 10 years,” he added.
