Right-hand top-order explosive Indian batsman Shubham Gill turned 21 today.
The vice-captain of the India Under-19 side for the 2018 World Cup has made a mark for himself owing to his dynamic batting. The budding player from Punjab made his first-class debut for his home team in the 2017 Ranji Trophy and registered an impressive half-century. He has been playing exceptionally since then. The youngster has often been compared to the likes of Virat Kohli for his aggressive shots.
Gill has built an impressive career in the domestic circuit delivering some really remarkable performances. He was declared as the best junior for two successive years, 2013-14 and 2014-15.
The cricket fraternity poured in their wishes on the social media platform, Twitter for the up-and-comer. Some of the tweets are:
The rising star is yet to make an impact on the international stage. He made his international debut against New Zealand on 31st January, 2019 and has played so far two international matches. However, it wasn’t an impressive start. Although, looking at his domestic records and playing style, the youngster promises a bright future for the Indian cricket team.
Impressed by his A-liner game, the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) picked him up in 2018 IPL auction for INR 1.8 crore.
