Off the field, Shubman Gill found himself in the spotlight once again as he crossed paths with renowned singer Ed Sheeran. During their interaction, Sheeran humorously inquired about Gill’s relationship status, to which the cricketer responded with a resounding “NO.” Sheeran, with a playful grin, quipped “On the Market” to the camera before sharing a photo of some cricketers, purportedly sent by a friend of his wife.

Despite his consistent performances for the Indian cricket team over the past few years, Gill’s selection for the T20 World Cup 2024 remains uncertain. Factors such as his batting position and stiff competition for spots in the top order pose challenges to his inclusion in the squad.

Competing against the likes of Yashasvi Jaiswal and KL Rahul for the opening and No. 3 positions, Gill faces a tough battle to secure his spot in the lineup. Former New Zealand cricketer Simon Doull expressed reservations regarding Gill’s automatic selection for the T20 World Cup squad, citing the limited room for top-order batters in the squad.

Despite Gill’s remarkable innings against Punjab Kings, Doull suggested that his place in the squad hinges on outperforming established players like Jaiswal, Rohit Sharma, and Virat Kohli.
