Team India’s young batsman Shubman Gill is in Australia these days. India has to play three ODIs and a T20 International series in Australia, followed by a four-Test Border-Gavaskar series. Gill said he has not set any individual goal for the tour, where a good performance could help him secure a place in the Indian team. Shubman Gill has been joining the Test team for some time, but he has not got a chance to play in the playing XI.
Gill has played just two ODIs for India. He has been included in the ODI and Test team on the tour of Australia. Gill said in a video posted on Twitter by his Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), ‘This is my first tour of Australia so I am really excited. Since childhood, I have watched matches between India and Australia. I am very excited. ‘
The 21-year-old left for Australia after a brilliant performance in the IPL with KKR. Gill scored 440 runs in 14 matches of the IPL this season. He said, ‘If a lot of my friends are going with the team then it will be very exciting. But of course when the practice session begins it is a completely different situation. ‘ Gill said, “I have not set any personal goals but I am excited to do well on this tour.” Gill was included in the Test series in New Zealand earlier this year to replace the injured Rohit Sharma. He made a place in the national team after scoring a not out 204 and half-century for India A in the unofficial test against New Zealand A in Christchurch.
