The Indian cricket team has started preparing for the ODI World Cup 2023. From the ongoing ODI series against West Indies, the Indian team has also started preparing for each test with different experiments. In the same episode, captain Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, considered the batting backbone of the India team, were rested in the second ODI. However, Rohit also started the innings with Ishaan and Gill in the first ODI. Something similar happened in the second ODI as well. Even in Rohit’s absence, this couple began to open up. For the first wicket both definitely added 90 runs but in terms of statistics one disappointed and the other created new hopes for Team India.

Shubman Gill added to Team India tension

If we talk about Shubman Gill, his failure is becoming a concern for the India team. When the preparations for the World Cup are being made, he becomes an important part. He is being considered as Rohit’s first choice opening partner in this mega event. Gill, who started the year brilliantly, has increased the team’s concern in recent games. After failing in the Test series against the West Indies, he too is proving a bust in ODIs. In the first ODI, he scored 7 runs, then in the second ODI, he was able to score just 34 runs off 49 balls. Prior to the IPL, Gill was also failing in the ODI series against Australia.

Gill’s last 5 ODI innings are worrying

If we talk about Shubman Gill’s performance in the last 5 ODIs, he has scored just 98 runs. In which three matches are from the Australia series and two matches are the first two ODIs played against the West Indies. Gill has scored just 20, 0, 37, 7 and 34 runs respectively during this term. At the same time, his form has also declined in the test match. In the WTC final played at The Oval, he opened and disappointed scoring just 13.18 runs. Following this, he scored just 6, 10 and 29 not outs in three innings of the West Indies Test series. Looking at this, it’s clear that he’s struggling to catch up. His poor form has given way to Ishan Kishan in the World Cup squad, who has scored three straight fifties.

Ishaan Kishan made a hat-trick of fifty

Where Shubman Gill is failing, Ishaan Kishan, who is being considered as the substitute starter for the World Cup, is continually proving his claim. Ishaan, who made his red ball debut in the Test series against the West Indies, scored the first Test fifty for him in the second innings of the second Test, scoring 52 off 34 balls. After that, he played an innings half-century and also opened in the first two ODIs. In the first ODI, Kishan scored 52 off 46 balls as the India team won the match by 5 wickets. In the second ODI, Ishaan played a 55-run innings off 55 balls. In this way he scored a hat-trick of fifty. In such a situation, if Gill’s performance continues like this, then he can be seen as a starter in the World Cup along with Rohit Sharma.
