“It was disappointing when I got out in the first ODI. I was looking to go big in that match, but unfortunately, I couldn’t. In Kolkata also, we didn’t have that many runs to score. I was also disappointed after I got out in that game. So, I wanted to go big after I start. Even in this game, I felt that I left a bit of runs there and could have gone deeper,” Shubman Gill was quoted as saying in a video uploaded on BCCI’s website.
