India’s talented batter Shubman Gill has been constantly making headlines with his extraordinary performance for quite some time now. He dominated the white ball format in the home series against Sri Lanka and New Zealand. Gill scored a double century in the first ODI and also got the century in the ongoing third ODI against New Zealand.
Former India skipper Mohammad Azharuddin spoke about Shubman Gill on Basit Ali’s YouTube channel and said, “Mai unki batting ka Mureed hoon (I am a fan of Shubman Gill’s batting). Honhaar cricketer hai kaafi acha lagta hai usey khelta dekh kar (He is a talented cricketer and I enjoy watching him play).
“He is a free-flowing batsman, looks elegant and is a complete entertainer,” he added.

“He is a lefty, a good striker of the ball and looks stylish whenever he plays the shots,” said Azharuddin.
“Shubman and Ishan are going to the pillars of Indian batting in the future. They are hugely talents,” he said.
