India is currently in a commanding position up against New Zealand on day 3 of the second Test of the two-match series at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. While India was up against the visitors in the 2nd innings, a boundary by young batter Shubman Gill stole the show due to certain reasons.

Shubman Gill has a decent outing in the Mumbai Test

It has to be noted while Shubman Gill was up on the crease, he smashed Tim Southee for a boundary, and soon after that, the fans at the iconic stadium started chanting ‘Sachin Sachin.’ It is known for all that Sachin Tendulkar has an unreal fanbase across the globe and it gets manifold when the action comes to his home ground, Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

However, this particular incident is being attributed to the reports that Gill and Tendulkar’s daughter Sara is dating each other. Though no official confirmation has been received from any one of them on any occasion, their social media activities drop a little hint to their dating rumors.

Here is the video of the incident:

Talking of Shubman Gill, he played a fine knock in both the innings of the Mumbai Test too where he smashed 44 runs. However, he is currently up on the crease alongside skipper Virat Kohli and playing on 17 runs (at the time of writing this article). India had a fine start to the second Test where Mayank Agarwal pulled off a brilliant knock of 150 runs which pushed India to post 325 runs on board.

Ajaz Patel turned out to be the one-man bowling show from New Zealand who went on to dismiss 10 wickets in an innings by becoming the only third bowler in the world to do so. However, Patel’s heroics weren’t reciprocated by his team batters as they had a severe collapse when they walked to bat.

The entire visiting team eventually got dismissed got wrapped up on just 62 runs but India avoided enforcing the follow-on and came up to utilize their batting time. They are currently moving up with a lead of 405 runs (at time of writing) and it remains to be seen if they will be able to clinch the series.
