Shubman gill who won trust of rohit sharma and rahul dravid with all format performance poses threat for kl rahul shikhar dhawan


Shubman Gill confirmed place in Test after ODI, T20
Scored a brilliant century in the Ahmedabad Test against Australia
Entry of two veterans in Team India is now closed

New Delhi. First Rohit Sharma’s old partner and then special friend….23 years old Shubman Gill has not only won the hearts of sports experts and fans with his performance, but has also given sleepless nights to two veterans. One has almost been dropped from the ODI team in the year of the World Cup and for the other too the doors of Team India may be closed soon. Talk about Shubman Gill, before that let us tell you the names of those 2 players, whose problems have been increased by Gill. One is Shikhar Dhawan and the other is KL Rahul. Both these players have scored a total of 38 centuries in international cricket. But, now 23-year-old Gill has made it difficult for both these players to return to Team India.

The way Shubman Gill has performed in ODIs, T20s and now Tests in the last 1 year, the entry of out-of-form KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan seems to be difficult in Team India. If we look at Shubman’s performance in 2023, he has so far scored a total of 5 centuries in all three formats, the rest of the batsmen of Team India have also scored the same number of centuries in total. That is, in 2023, Gill remains the run machine of Team India. He scored a double century against New Zealand in ODIs. At the same time, in T20 also, Gill has scored his first century this year.

KL Rahul also out of Test team after being made vice-captain
In the first 2 Tests of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia, captain Rohit Sharma gave a chance to KL Rahul, preferring experience. KL Rahul started the innings with captain Rohit. But, Rahul was able to score only 38 runs in 3 innings of 2 tests. Before the third Test played in Indore, KL Rahul’s vice-captaincy also went and was also dropped from the team.

Shubman made it difficult for KL Rahul
Rahul Dravid’s disciple Shubman Gill got a chance in place of KL Rahul. However, Gill also could not capitalize on it and was able to score 26 runs in both the innings. However, captain Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid, expressing confidence in Gill, gave him a chance again in the Ahmedabad Test and this time Gill lived up to his trust. He played an inning of 128 runs. This is his first century against Australia. After this innings, Gill proved his usefulness in Test format as well. After this, KL Rahul’s return to the Test team will not be easy. If India qualifies, then after the Ahmedabad Test, the final of the World Test Championship will be played directly, in which India will compete with Australia. In such a situation, it is difficult to ignore Gill.

Gill hit 3 centuries in ODIs in 2023
The way Gill has increased the difficulties of KL Rahul. Similarly, the challenge of Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit’s oldest opening partner in ODIs has also increased due to this young batsman. Rohit and Dhawan have shared a century partnership 18 times in ODIs. In the absence of Rohit in 2022, Dhawan also captained the team in ODIs. But, at the beginning of 2023, Dhawan was out of the ODI team, in his place, Gill became Rohit’s new partner and since then runs have been raining with his bat.

Gill is India’s top scorer in ODIs in 2023. He has scored 567 runs in 6 innings at an average of 113.40. Three centuries have also been hit. In such a situation, no batsman is seen to replace Gill in ODIs. In such a situation, the doors of Team India have been closed for Dhawan as well.
