Former Indian player Saba Karim full of praise Shubman brings after the youngster’s stellar performance against New Zealand in the ODIs and said he could carry on the legacy of Sachin Tendulkar and Virat kohli. Gill ended the streak as the top scorer with 360 – a joint record for a three-match streak with Pakistan. Babar Azam. During a recent interaction, Karim said that Gill possesses a talent that has not been seen for a long time and that he could become the “backbone” of the Indian team.
“Very good temperament. He can continue the legacy left by Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar. The biggest test is the overseas condition. Gill’s track in England wasn’t very good when he played Tests. We hope that he will become the mainstay of Indian batting. We are seeing such a skill after a long time. In the future, we have to check how he performs against tough opponents. We had to test him in difficult conditions and quality fast pitchers, but the start was phenomenal,” Karim told India News.
Gill had been vying for a spot on the ODI team but the dual centuries in the just-ended series have pretty much helped his case. Karim praised him for the maturity he showed on the pitch and said he can become an even better player in the future.
“There’s a lot going on about Shubman Gill’s batting. He looks grown up with Batman. As an adult, I mean being aware of the game, reading the game, playing different shots with pitchers, focusing on shot selection, how to run the scoreboard, and complementing a partner. when needed,” added Karim.
