Rishabh Pant Recalls India Opener Shubman Gill Fury at Missing Century


India’s tour of Australia in 2020-21 will be counted among the greatest cricket tours in history. After being all out for 36 in Adelaide and trailing 0-1, Team India made a comeback with a win in Melbourne. The match was drawn in Sydney and then won the match at the Gabba and won the series 2-1. In the last match of the same series, Shubman Gill scored 91 runs, but was very disappointed when he could not score a century.

Virat Kohli, Mohammed Shami, Ravi Chandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja and Hanuma Vihari could not play in this series due to different reasons. Despite this, the team won. In the last match, India’s opener Shubman Gill scored 91 runs off 146 balls while chasing the target with Cheteshwar Pujara (56) after the early dismissal of Rohit Sharma, but he was furious after being dismissed.

Rishabh Pant has now revealed how angry Gill was at himself after losing his wicket for 91 runs. Pant told in Bandon Mein Tha Dum docu-series, “Gill and I discussed that we want to win the match and not draw. Gill was hitting pull shots, cut shots. I was happy because we discussed it. I had only one thought in my mind that we have to win. Gill was furious when he came back from the field after getting out. He was shouting, ‘What have I done?’ And was cursing himself.”

Pant consoled the disappointed batsman Shubman Gill. “I told him, ‘Don’t worry, you batted well’,” Pant said. Wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant himself scored an unbeaten 89 off 138 balls and led the team to victory in Brisbane. Australia had not lost at the Gabba for several decades. In this way Team India broke the pride of Gabba in Australia.
