New Delhi. This year is the T20 World Cup. Team India, which is preparing for the tournament, is also playing a T20 series against Afghanistan. As expected, the Indian team started in the same way. India won the first T20 in Mohali by 6 wickets. However, an incident happened in this match which is being discussed the most.
Actually, due to Shubman Gill’s mistake, Rohit Sharma was run out in the match. He could not even open an account. He was seen getting angry at Gill. In such a situation, Shubman may be exempted from the second T20. However, this will not happen because Gill got his captain out, but because of his own game.
Virat Kohli did not play in the first T20 against Afghanistan due to personal reasons. He bats at number three. He will play in the second and third T20. In the first T20 held in Mohali, Rohit Sharma left out Yashasvi Jaiswal and gave a chance to Gill as an opener.
Gill had made a good start while chasing 159 runs. But, once again he could not convert this start into a big innings. For this reason, Gill can be sat out in the second T20 and Rohit can open the innings with Yashasvi.
Gill may be out of second T20
Whereas, Virat Kohli can bat at number three. In such a situation, Gill’s place does not seem to be in the top-three. The way Shivam Dubey and Rinku performed in the first T20, it is difficult to keep them out. In such a situation, Gill does not get a place in the middle order and he may have to sit out of the second T20.
Gill’s strike rate is low
Anyway, Shubman Gill, who has scored a lot of runs in ODI, is not able to show his strength in T20. He has scored 335 runs in 14 T20s so far. His strike rate is 147, which is less than Yashasvi. At the same time, Gill’s ODI average is 60 whereas in T20 he is scoring runs at an average of 25 only. That means, not only is the strike rate lower than that of Yashasvi, there is also a lack of consistency in his performance. For this reason, questions are often raised about Gill in T20.
