Hamilton: Shubman Gill, who has been included in the Indian Test team, has made it clear that he has no competition with fellow player Prithvi Shaw for a place in the two-match series against New Zealand starting on February 21.
Gill says that the team management has to decide who will play and there is no ‘fight’ between us. Shubman also said that Gill also said that the player who will get a chance will try his best to capitalize on it. Significantly, Rohit Sharma was injured during the T20 series against New Zealand, so the team management has to choose a batsman from Shubman Gill and Prithvi Shaw to start the innings with Mayank Agarwal.
The 20-year-old Shubman said, “It is obvious that our career started at the same time, but there is no competition between us. We both have done well on our order. It is on the team management that Who does he give a chance to? It is not that there is a fight between us about it. Whoever gets the chance will want to take full advantage of it.
” While Shaw is a regular opener, the order of Gill keeps changing, but Gill has said that it is not very difficult for him to keep pace with the changing order. Shubhamag Gill has recently played Sandara innings as an opener representing India A against New Zealand A.
Gill said, “When I was asked to start the innings, it was not new to me. When you go to number 4, your two wickets have already fallen, then it is a different situation. Different Kind of pressure. When you are starting the innings, you have to be a match for the whole team.
It is a different thing. At the beginning of the innings, you have to lay a foundation that is easy for the coming batsmen. ” Gill said that being a middle-order batsman, the player has to take care of the second new ball in the Test.
