    1) He's not an opener.

    2) Even if he was, lets waste a career if Rohit/Dhawan decide play for another 4 years and then Shaw/Rahul replace them.

    3) Players have moved batting positions in the history of cricket.

    199* not double,but that was a very good knock ,took my state out of the match.

    And he styled his hair before coming to the match, remarkable how he is still not in the team but maybe they are jus waiting.

    Serious talent, our selectors missed a trick by sticking to TTFs for so long. After the Champions Trophy young blood should have been pushed in, especially in our middle order and pace bowling slots.

    I agree. He would have done well if given a shot at number 4. Though Rayudu is not the first option until World cup. Then Gill can come in after.

    Right now there actually much more open positions in batting line up.than there ever have been at least from a viewers point of view.
    Have never complained that the best players are outside of team coz our selectors are usually more active among Asian teams but damn this it's it's diff.

    Already looks like as international class player. This 268 knock will push him closer to the national selection. With an out of sorts KL Rahul, fitness concerns of Kedar Jadhav and down the hill Dhoni, he could even be playing as a middle order batsman in the WC for us.

    Only question is can we have two 19 year olds - Shaw and Gill and a 21 year oldPant in the top 7. Will make that team the youngest batting unit ever!

    Can go either ways. Upside is huge but will they have the maturity to digest likely failures and public criticism? What if they lose their way? Let us see what approach the selectors and team management take.

    Personally, I donít see any similarities with Kohli in terms of technique and style. He is in fact similar to Root but with a more compact technique. Of course, his height and physique play big roles in the resemblance.

    The similarity is in the short arm pull over mid wicket, cover drive off the spinners and dab through gully-point region in shorter formats. Gill is more languid and is a bit like a left hander.

    Shaw and Gill should be in the ODI squad and Test squad. These 2 are too good to not play for India. Both are ready for international cricket. Gill will be a quality middle order bat.

    If only our selectors could see the light.

    Don't see how after today, Shubman can be kept away from the test team. This was monumental stuff. Almost a run a ball 150 on the last day. Punjab had no business going after that total except for Shubman.

    Needs to be drafted into the ODI team. He is surely better than the incumbents at 4 and 5.

    He can be given a few chances at 4 before the WC. Dhoni is coming at 5 (looks like we will have to accept this). Jadhav at 6 (for his part time spin), Pandya at 7, followed by 2 spinners and 2 pacers.

    I would rather Gill plays instead of Rayudu, since Rayudu or Karthik aint doin much at the WC. We might as well use this is an opportunity to blood a young gun, just as Dhoni did with Kohli in 2011.

    Intrigued to note that Shubman who started as a number 3/4 batsman has started to open. Clearly aiming for the spot that'd be available in near term. If he succeeds, he'd be opening with Shaw. Ideally, I'd prefer him to start at number 4/5 and move up to 3 eventually.

    It has more to with other Punjab openers being hopeless plus them having stable middle order imo.

    It's good thing for him to face new ball regularly. Ranji teams generally play only 2 good/proper pacers.

    Gill continues to knock on the door

    Gill's first-class tally now stands at 990 runs in eight matches and 14 innings, with three hundreds and six fifties. Gill fell 10 short of completing 1000 first-class runs in under nine matches, a feat achieved by no other Indian. Overall, Gill has at least one half-century in each of his eight outings in first-class cricket.

    The Guy is a Gun indeed. The best part is that post the U19 WC & the IPL Blitz, he hasn't stumbled unlike other youngsters hyped as prodigies like Unmukt Chand, Vijay Zol etc to name a few.

    I was mighty ****** when Kohli & his gang ensured that Dravid doesn't gets the Batting coach role with the Indian senior team. However it has been a blessing in disguise as under Rahul, India's youngsters r budding well. Hope RD is able to inculcate a bit of humility into them as well, which he himself had in abundance.

    yes. This is the top division. Not the plate group which is a lower division. He treats every bowler with utter disdain. He was the standout player in U19 world cup. Prithvi shaw and Shaheen afridi have already made test debut. This guy is next in line.

    Can't wait till Gill makes the senior team,

    absolute pleasure to watch bat along with Shaw who is sensational.

    Saw him in the U19WC, this boy will surpass Shaw easily, he will be competing with India's finest I believe.

    Punjabís been competitive because of Gill and Anmolpreet primarily. Their bowlingís sucked major ____ through most of the games so far this season.

    Why isnít Punjab producing pace bowlers or hasnít been??

    india could dominate if they would field this batting lineup in tests:

    Shaw
    Agarwal
    Pujara
    Kohli
    Gill
    Pant

    I know Gill has been playing as an opener but there is no space.

    Time will tell if he is any good or fizzles out like another Unmukt Chand , Samson or Kambli or heck even K.l Rahul. Iíll reseve my judgement until then. Everyone was over the moon with Chand and Samson. And now they are rotting away in domestic. There is a load of difference between opponents from first class and then playing on the international level against opponents that are not Indian.

    I watched him in the WC. He was very impressive. I wonder why Shaw was fast tracked and not him. Ideally he should just slot in the place of Rayudu after the WC at 4 provided he can bat in the middle order.

    Shaw was drafted first because he was on radar from much before.

    Chand? Not even 10% as good as Gill is. This is not hype. This is destiny. Samson another loose stroke player. This guy is step above Kohli. Same dedication. Same hardwork.

    If he has atleast half of Kohlis desire and hardwork, he would be twice the player of peak Kohli.

    So he will average 260+ in a calendar year?

    Viv Richards is atleast 100 times better than Ishant Sharma. He doesn't average 100 though. Hope you got the gist :-)

    Gill has already done better than those 2 at FC level who average in 30s

    Chand was hyped for u-19 success
    He could never deliver at FC level & neither in IPL,fansstopped caring about him just 1-2 years after the 2012 U-19 WC
    He now struggles to find a place in Delhi Ranji team,no one picks him for IPL

    Samson was never a consistent performer at FC
    he was never taken seriously by those who follow Indian domestic cricket
    Only IPL fan bois rated him

    That's because of management of Punjab Ranji team who were giving opportunities to a loose strokeplayer like Manan Vohra
    Shaw was drafted into Ranji side 2 season back and he performed well there which got him drafted into India a side this year,some match winning performances there and he got into Indian side

    Only thing that can stop him is himself.

    Can't wait to see him bat. I hope he cashes in the very first opportunity he gets since it's highly likely that one failure and Dhoni's chamchas would be back for good.

    Gill will be a ODI regular after the WC. Indian fans should be patient. The reason he is in the squad now is for him to get use to being on tour. They won't risk him for the WC, maybe as back up but not a regular. Rayaudu,Dhoni,and Karthik are all 30 plus and won't make the WC so of course India will go with a younger player after the WC which will be Gill.

    Frankly he looks like a work in progress. He is not the answer to India’s WC middle order problem.

    Would actually be a worrying thing for India if he were, common sense should have been getting someone like a agarwal in who can settle in quickly given his experience rather than a u 19 kid.

    Needs work, Shaw looked more in sync but that was India, he can always work on his game.
