New Delhi. The Indian cricket team has made a great start in the first match of the two-match Test series against the West Indies. After bundling out the hosts for 150 runs in the first innings, they took a big lead on the second day of the match. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ishaan Kishan made their debut in this match. Shubman Gill, who has confirmed his place as an opener in the team, did something in this match which could cost him dearly.
Shubman Gill, who has confirmed his place as an opener in the Indian team, batted at number three in the series against the West Indies. Yashasvi Jaiswal, who is making a debut, started the innings with captain Rohit Sharma. Even before this match, Rohit had informed the media that Yashasvi is going to debut and he will open the innings. Shubman Gill will now bat at number three instead of opening.
Shubman Gill’s decision may be costly
Shubman Gill, who has been doing well for Team India till now as an opener, suddenly decided to play at number three. This young batter told his point to coach Rahul Dravid and he accepted it. Captain Rohit Sharma told that Gill had said that he has been playing at number three and can do better at this number.
Shubman Gill did not run at number three
Shubman Gill’s bat did not work in the first innings after asking the captain and coach to change his batting order. In the match against the West Indies in which Yashasvi scored a century, Gill returned after scoring just 6 runs off 10 balls. At the age of just 23, he created a stir by scoring centuries in all three formats of cricket. Now changing the batting order may not cost them dearly.
