Former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh applauded Shubman Gill and also said that the young star has the potential to become the best player of this generation as well. In the year 2023, Shubman Gill showed exceptional performance in ODIs. He emerged as the highest run-getter in ODIs for the year, smashing a staggering 1230 runs from 20 innings. His average is 72.35, with a strike rate of 105.03 as well.
He did well during the Asia Cup 2023, where he scored his fifth ODI century against Bangladesh and became the first player to score 1000 runs in ODIs in 2023. He also became the first batter with more than five international centuries in the same year as well.
Speaking to the Week, Yuvraj said, “Shubman Gill has the potential to become the best player of this generation. The guy works hard. Since he was 19-20, his attitude has always been like that. He works four times harder than a normal guy since he was a kid. Whatever I have worked with him, he can be the player of this era,”
Yuvraj Singh also tipped Shubman Gill to do well in places like Australia, South Africa and England in the future as well.
“He (Gill) scored 91 in a Test match which India won. He scored two fifties as well on his first tour to Australia which I don’t know how many players have done. I am sure he will score runs in Australia, South Africa as well as England,” he concluded.
