    Shubman Gill - Future Indian batting star

    Shubman Gill has already attracted lots of attention with his exploits at the junior level. He has already scored a first class hundred and a List A hundred at the age of 18. In the ongoing World Cup, he has been India's best player and hasn't been dismissed under 50 in any of the games he has batted in.

    He surely is a great prospect for India. With Indian middle order not as strong as it used to be, Shubman probably has a chance of getting fast tracked into the Indian ODI side sooner than expected.

    His conscious effort to plays everything on the ground reminds me of Kohli. If anything he is also a bit like Laxman through on side.

    Last time I saw him he was a backfoot basher. One year under dravid has certainty helped him. Good temperament too. Don't like kholi like arrogance and swagger.

    Shaw doesn't outside of his stature (and Mumbai). I think his technical flaws will get exposed at the highest level.

    He is a superstar in the making. His confidence, responsibility, and of course stroke making belie his young age. He will, though, be more in the mould of Dravid than Sachin, though a little more aggressive than Dravid. He will be a lot more stable than flamboyant - that is my guess on his career.

    It is about the culture and the environment. Shubman Gill did not become Shubman Gill because he has some special powers - he simply had access to better coaching and environment to thrive in.

    He won't lose 5-6 years of his career because of mismanagement the way Haris has, and neither will his game regress three after international cricket like Babar. It is not a coincidence that 99% of the Indian batsmen go on to have better careers than their Pakistani counterparts.

    What you say is true, but you are missing the point. Your original statement that he is better than any international Pakistani batsman is clearly false as Babar Azam and Haris Sohail are better batsmen.

    He seems a more refined batsmen than both at this point. Has more power than Babar and better fitness than Haris. Technically as good as it gets.

    Say what? You are either too young to have watched Dravid play or simply revising history.

    Dravid was a poor runner between wicket. Nor was he very good at maneuvering the ball. He was, as a matter of fact, much better at hitting boundaries than taking singles. This is one reason why he struggled so much with strike rate in limited over cricket. Dravid did have a very compact defense, patience, and an appetite for runs which served him well in test cricket.

    Gill looked pretty good in the little I saw before going to sleep. But long way to go yet, and its difficult breaking into the Indian batting line-up. Lots of people waiting in the wings.

    Next stage for him would be to get an IPL gig and impress there.

    Boy there are hundreds of videos available on social media..
    ICC released a dozen videos during ICC U19 WC and there are numerous interviews of U19 players.

    Yes, choreographed ICC videos and repeating cliched cricketing truisms before camera are what provide a peek into coaching philosophy. You are such a discerning cricket fan.

    Seems to have the hunger to score runs as well judging by his record. Impressed me greatly from the first time I saw him bat, he made it look so easy and was several levels above the kids he was playing against.

    No question he's more talented than them, he has so much time when batting and is very organized. He's so calm and composed and doesn't let the pressure get to him.

    Shubman Gill and Prithvi Shaw have hardly begun their first class careers with 2 and 9 games respectively. It is too early to tell how they will develop. It is disgusting to see some Indian fans hyping them up so much. But then our fans aren't exactly known for their collective intelligence in these matters.

    It is good that these boys have performed in the U-19. But let us leave it at that. We don't want them to go the way of Unmukt Chand and Vijay Zol.

    It's either feast or famine here on this forum. But here's what awaits Gill. He has to play against seasoned professionals in Ranji for two seasons minimum without all the media glamor associated with ICC events. And not just play but own his opposition much like Shaw did. If he can accomplish all that then he would have earned the right to join the pool of India hopefuls. Nothing is a given at the moment.

    It is good that these boys have performed in the U-19. But let us leave it at that. We don't want them to go the way of Unmukt Chand and Vijay Zol.
    Well the Indian cheerleader on this forum has already given his verdict. No stopping now. This lad will play for 20 years and average 50 plus.

    Blessed.

If he can accomplish all that then he would have earned the right to join the pool of India hopefuls. Nothing is a given at the moment.
    He is already in the pool of India hopefuls as he was selected for the India A team against NZ A last year after his stellar performance in England. Unfortunately he got injured so he didn't play but he is definitely in the selectors' radar already. Looks a much more compact player than the likes of Rohit, Iyer, Nair and Pandey who are the current contenders for the No. 6 spot in Tests so I wouldn't be surprised if he jumps the queue if he performs well at First-class and A team matches.

    Good player. Lets see how he develops. To be successful at international level, skill is one among many factors that matter. Expectations of performing when there is a line of talented batsmen behind you waiting to take your place; Consistency at top level is different to consistency in youth cricket, one day you could be facing a Herath and another day a Rabada on a completely different pitch. When you are competing for a place in the national team, there is no age barrier, you are competing with a newbie and a 15-year old veteran like Yuvraj at the same time.

    Unmukt, Vijay Zol, Ishaan Kishan, Sarfaraz, Tanmay Srivastav (who did better than Virat in youth ODIs) are yet to make it to the Indian team. No need for hype but good to see the temperament of the guy.

    Seen all of them. There is something about him that sets apart from all of them. Look at his timing and his ground strokes. These kind of on drives belong to senior level. It is almost like if he decides to stick around you cannot get him out. Those guys were facing 130k trundlers. This guy batsa against 145k bowler with ridiculous ease. He is ready for elevaion. Wasting him in domestic is criminal.

    Disagree. It might seem that he is tough to get out because he has scored a lot recently and we all have short memories. But international cricket is a different sport altogether. Like Virat, I think Shubmans' life-blood are also singles and doubles but there is a HUGE gap between the quality of bowling and fielding in U19 and international and if you cut his singles, it will be interesting to see how he reacts. I think he has to develop his hitting game a lot if he is looking for LOI role. Also Sarfaraz was hitting Mustafizur and Malinga for sixes at age 17 in IPL. Tanmay was outscoring Virat big-time in youth ODIs. All of these are and were good players. Let Shubman play first-class and IPL for couple of years. Also playing 135k might be easier than playing a Philander at 127-130. Not all is about speed. PPers are going over-the-top with him right now.

    actually even commentators praised his level headed attitude, he is 18, got an contract of Rs 180 million one day before match, and still stayed focused on the match, it's amazing.

    Disagree man. I never felt anything like that about Tanmay or anyone. This guy is something special. Only thing that can stop him is himself. Never seen a way way over qualified under19 player. This guy may not become a T20 speicalist. His game is not like that. Look at the fours he hit. Just 7 fours. He constructs the innings beautifully brick by brick. Hitting sixes in IPL gives you nothing. But i look at their on drives, balance, head position all those stuffs. Tanmay , Chand i knew they were not going anywhere. This guy will be future Virat for sure. He will flop in IPL. His game is not suite for T20. But will be a ODI artist.

    When you compare him with Shreyas Iyer whose batting has countless holes, this guy is a bradman. And Iyer is already playing for India. He is comfortably better than Jadhav, Manish pandey. Will be a genuine match winner for India.

    Rubbish.

    His game is actually very suited for IPL.

    IPL is the future and he absolutely can hit big sixes in the IPL. The only reason he hasn't is because he was told to play carefully. KKR isn't going to waste him like that.

    And newsflash. No one EVER EVER EVER will be India's No. 1 if they are a flop in the IPL.

    Not true at all. He is very conscious about keeping the ball down. He even said that in the interview. He is not a slogger if you think. Iyer despite having some success is a rubbish slogger with so many holes in his batting. Infat Gill will become an ace Test batsman too. From whatever i saw whenever he tries to slog he mistimes badly. He is a placer of the ball like Kohli. He may have his moments in the IPL. But he will be average. And also it is rubbish to say failure in IPL means he will be ignored. Dinesh karthik keeps finding his place because of his domestic performance in syed mustaq ali, Ranji tournaments. Not because of IPL.

    CHANDIGARH: India U-19 player Shubman Gill's father is elated at the performance of his son in the ongoing World Cup in New Zealand, saying the youngster has always been a dedicated cricketer.

    "Shubhman has always been dedicated to the game of cricket. I am very happy and proud of my son's performance in the ongoing World Cup," Gill's father Lakhwinder Singh said on Tuesday.

    "We are elated with his century in today's match against Pakistan and defeating the Pakistani team," he said.

    Asked when Gill showed his inclination towards cricket, Lakhwinder said he had always been passionate about the game since the age of three.


    "Shubhman never liked any other toy. He always loved playing with the bat and ball. He used to play with cricket bat and ball even during going to bed," he said.

    Gill's family belongs to a village in Fazilka in Punjab.

    "We fully supported him for achieving his dream to become a cricketer. We dedicated 15 years on him to enable him become a world class cricketer. We even left our work and skipped several family functions including marriage ceremonies of our relatives so we could dedicate as much time as we could on him," said Lakhwinder who is now based at Mohali.


    The 18-year-old Gill scored 102 not out to help India beat arch-rivals Pakistan by 203 runs in the U-19 World Cup semi-final match in Christchurch today.

    Gill, who was bought by Kolkata Knight Riders for Rs 1.8 crore in the Indian Premier League players' auction, is the team's leading scorer with 341 runs.

    Shubman Gill - quality player but remains to be seen if he's only quality at the U19 level or he can make it to the big stage. When I watched Unmukt Chand at the U19 World Cup, I thought he was just incredible. But he could never cut it at the highest level.

    Chand was never incredible. He had the loose technique that all U19 players have. Gill and SHaw have much tighter technique.

    He was very conscious about keeping it down THIS INNINGS and THIS TOURNAMENT, because this is all Rahul Dravid has kept telling him.

    He absolutely can slog very well. Secondly, Shreyas Iyer is not a good slogger (or very good batsman).

    Nobody in Indian cricket will ever be very big unless they are an IPL star. That's a fact. Everyone from Kohli to Sharma, to even Rahane is successful in IPL, and guys who can't cut it there, like Pujara are often dropped even in Tests, because they have no visibility, don't get to play for long stretches and hence cannot be leaders.

    Shubman Gill has been bought by the most statistically aware side in IPL which uses algorithm and detailed scouting for all players. Shubman Gill has very high projected strike rates (as does literally everyone in the KKR batting lineup because that's their single-minded focus this year).

    If he didn't like hitting big shots, Rahul Dravid wouldn't need to keep telling him this. He has a 13% boundary hitting rate in FC cricket. He's hit 4 sixes in 300 balls faced in FC cricket. These are numbers better than that mustered by many in T20.

    Nobody is hitting 13% boundaries or scoring at 82 SR in FC if they aren't hitters.

    And to give you some context on his FC scoring rates.

    Rishabh Pant (also an all-star talent who will be a great) is considered to be an out and out slogger. People call him a todu batsman. Pant averages 53 in FC at a strike rate of 99 has all kinds of records for hitting in FC. Pant's boundary percentage in FC is 14.88 vs this kid's 13%.

    You will see soon enough in this IPL that this guy is not the tuk-tuk or technical batsman you want and nor will he devote his life to Test. Cricket in India is moving more towards white ball cricket. This guy is good enough to be great in all 3 formats, but he will succeed most in IPL and ODIs

    If he slogs and fails he will be a goner. Two times he tried to slog he mistimed ball went in the air fell in no man's land. He is not pant who is an out and out slogger. Indian domestic cricket is a mysterious world where Jadeja can score 3 triple centuries, Ashwin have average returns. Yet at the international level Ashwin can outperform top order and Jaddu looks like a hack. Don't read too much into it. I have watched my share of domestic recently. Cricket in India moving towards white ball? Ya. that is why India was fighting tooth and nail at the wanderers . Don't spread imaginary theories. Kohli is one of the ardent Test fan. Dhoni is the one who couldn't care less for Tests. T20 apart from IPL who gives a sh* about any other games. IPL comes once every year. You don't play only for that.

    He has that aura of Kohli when he pulls the ball. Also that wristy flick through the off side is carbon copy of Kohli. But for some reason he says he tries to copy all the strokes of Sachin lol May be because of his height i don't see much of sachin in him. Sehwag also started playing by copying shots of Sachin then he branched away.

    Great innings under pressure, looked good at rotating the strike and showed great game awareness. My only area of concern for the lad was his lack of power, he may struggle to hit 6's in the limited overs game.

    He looks the complete package except for the power game..he will learn it during the IPL...Kohli also improved his power hitting after he started playing in IPL from 2008..
    Kohli captained the u19 squad in 2008 world cup and he was immediately signed by RCB in 2008 IPL....

    Based on what I have seen Gill looks the better batsman at the moment. This is based on comparing the strengths and weaknesses of both batsmen.

    One thing I forgot to mention was Gill's balance at the crease - some of the shots he was hitting for four between mid on and mid wicket were just pure class.

    I see, even the IPL scouts and coaches think the same and that is the reason Gill got 1.8 crore vs 1.2 crore for Shaw. Still, decent money for Shaw at this age but Gill got 50% more.
