Former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has backed young batter Shubman Gill, stating that he can do great things over the next 10 years. Yuvraj referred to Gill as a hardworking cricketer who has impressed with his consistency as well. The veteran worked with the youngster during the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020. While Gill honed his skills during the period, he also left a good impression on the Indian legend as well.

Shubman Gill has so far represented India in 11 Tests and 15 ODIs. He has made a wonderful start to his ODI career and he has an average of 57.25 with one hundred and four half-centuries so far as well. He also believed that the youngster is a strong contender to open the batting in the 2023 ODI World Cup as well.

Praising Gill, Yuvraj Singh said: “Shubman is very hardworking and is doing all the right things. I believe he is destined for greatness in the next 10 years. I think Shubman is doing very well and is performing consistently. I believe he is a strong contender to open for India in the 2023 World Cup.”

Shubman Gill scored 50, 45* and 13 in the three-match ODIs series in New Zealand, which the Indian team lost 0-1 as well. Meanwhile,  former India captain Sunil Gavaskar said that Gill is not doing justice to his talent by getting out in the 50s and 60s.

Speaking on Sony Sports, Gavaskar shared: “Shubman Gill will have to score hundreds and hundreds. Not the 50s and 60s that he is getting. He is a terrific talent, make no mistake. He is a rare talent. But he is not doing justice to his talent by getting out in the 50s or 60s.“Yes sometimes I understand that you are kind of trying to up the scoring rate but he has got to convert those 50s and 60s into impact hundreds and 120. Those knocks make a difference to the result,” he added.
