There is little denying the fact that Shubman Gill is the next big thing in Indian cricket. Along with Prithvi Shaw, Gill is being widely tipped to be Indian cricket’s flag-bearer in the coming years. The youngster has also made sure to live up to the hype and expectations surrounding him. At just 19, Gill has shown remarkable composure and maturity on the field to garner everyone’s attention.
That Gill is a special talent was very much clear when he starred for India in their victorious ICC Under-19 World Cup 2018. In the testing conditions of New Zealand, the youngster looked class apart. He scored 372 runs at an average of over 100 including a sensational century against Pakistan in the semifinal to become an overnight star in this cricket-obsessed nation. Gill finished the tournament as the second highest run-scorer and bagged the Man of the Tournament award.
The performance helped Gill earn a lucrative IPL deal and so far he has totally justified the faith shown in him by the franchise. In this year’s edition, the Kolkata Knight Riders star scored 296 runs in 14 matches, with 76 as his highest score. He was also named the emerging player of the tournament although he could not help the Knight Riders make it to the playoffs.
Enjoying some much-needed break from the game now, Gill has gifted himself a swanky four wheeler, Range Rover. The Punjab youngster took to Twitter to inform the fans of his latest ride. Posting a picture of himself standing beside the car, Gill wrote, “Thalle mere Range akh baaz naalo tezz! Caption credits – @jassiegill”
Sachin Tendular’s daughter Sara reacted to Shubman Gill’s pic posing with the Range Rover, congratulating him on his latest possession. Gill in reply, posted another another tweet thanking her for the wishes alongwith a heart symbol that has got social media talking. There have been past rumours of the duo dating each other although there being no such evidence to support the rumours until now. The string of tweets didn’t just end there as Hardik Pandya decided to take a cheeky vive at the youngster for his reply to Sara’s congratulatory tweet.
