New Delhi. young batter Shubman Gill (Shubman Gill) was fielded at number three instead of opening in the batting order in the first Test match of the 2-match series against the West Indies (IND vs WI). However, he could not leave much impact. He returned to the pavilion after scoring 6 runs. While in his place Rohit was fielded in the opening Yashasvi Jaiswal (Yashasvi Jaiswal) performed amazingly in the debut test. Yashasvi not only scored a century, but during this time he also made many records in his name.

Team India’s batting coach Vikram Rathod says that Gill will get enough time from the team management.
About Gill, Vikram Rathore said, ‘He has a lot of potential and he has reached that potential in other formats as well. He has also scored runs in Test cricket. Sometimes a specific format may take a while and it is time consuming. He has that time.
Gill wants to secure a place at number three
Before the first Test match against the Windies, when Shubman Gill was asked whose decision was to land at number three, the Indian player had said that he himself had told the team management that he wanted to land at number three. Gill had then said that he wanted to confirm his place at this number. Although earlier Cheteshwar Pujara used to bat at number three, who has been dropped from the team due to poor form.
‘He will play in all three formats for a long time’
Vikram Rathod said, ‘He is taking time but the good thing is that there is no dearth of his hard work. He is working on things. Along with ability, he also has patience which makes one a great player. There is no doubt that he will play in all three formats for a long time. Rathore was very impressed with the performance of young Yashasvi Jaiswal in his first Test. Jaiswal laid the foundation of India’s victory by playing an innings of 171 runs.
