In the ongoing IND vs ENG Test series, Shubman Gill finds himself in a challenging phase, recording low scores and facing criticism for his performance. In the latest development, Gill became the third Indian batter in Test history to bat over 30 times in the top 4 and maintain an average below 30, joining the ranks of Krishnamachari Srikkanth and Anshuman Gaekwad.
Gill’s struggle continued in the second Test as he fell for 34 in the first innings, attempting an aggressive shot off James Anderson. This adds to his recent poor form, having scored less than 200 runs in the last ten innings, including a disappointing performance in South Africa.
Despite the setbacks, Gill has the support of experienced players like Rahul Dravid, Rohit Sharma, and Virat Kohli in the dressing room. His change in approach in the second Test didn’t yield positive results, emphasizing the need for him to overcome this challenging phase.
While Gill may face scrutiny, being part of a squad led by understanding figures gives him the opportunity to bounce back. With one more innings to go in the current Test, the young opener aims to redeem himself, aware that a failure might jeopardize his spot in the playing 11.
