Shubman Gill At Number 3: The second Test between India and West Indies is being played in Trinidad. In the second consecutive Test, Indian star batsman Shubman Gill appeared flop. In the Test series against the West Indies, India did not make Cheteshwar Pujara, the star batsman playing at number three, a part of the team. Till now Gill has appeared at number three in place of Pujara, but he has been a flop at this number so far.
In the first innings of the second Test being played at Queens Park Oval in Trinidad, Shubman Gill was dismissed after scoring 10 runs in 12 balls with the help of two fours. Kemar Roach made Gill his victim. Gill returned to the pavilion after scoring consistently low in the second test. In this match, captain Rohit Sharma (80) and Yashasvi Jaiswal (57) gave the team a great start from the opening. But Gill disappointed at number three.
At the same time, in the first Test played in Dominica, Gill was seen batting at number three only. While batting in India’s first innings in that match, Gill was dismissed after scoring 6 runs in 11 balls with the help of 1 four. In that match, West Indies spinner Warrican trapped Gill in his net.
India’s search for number three continues
Star Indian batsman Cheteshwar Pujara was made part of the team in the final of the World Test Championship played against Australia, where he failed to perform well. After this, 35-year-old Pujara was dropped in the series against West Indies and Gill was given the responsibility of number three. But Gill has so far appeared to be a flop at number three. In such a situation, it will be interesting to see what new way the Indian team finds for number three.
Please tell that Gill has played 18 Tests for India so far. Batting in 32 innings of these matches, he has scored 937 runs at an average of 31.23. During this, 2 centuries and 4 half-centuries have come out of his bat, in which his high score has been 128 runs.
