IND Vs ENG: Former Team India coach Ravi Shastri has warned star batsman Shubman Gill who constantly flops in Test cricket. Ravi Shastri has made it clear that Shubman Gill will definitely be left out of the Test team if his performance does not improve. Ravi Shastri is disappointed that Shubman Gill is not playing a long innings despite a good start. Shastri has warned Shubman that Cheteshwar Pujara is ready to replace him in the team.
Shubman Gill has not been able to play big innings in the last 6 Test matches. Shubman Gill got off to a good start in the first innings of the second Test against England. But Gill returned to the pavilion after scoring 34 runs. During his commentary during the match, Ravi Shastri said that a player like Shubman Gill has to prove himself to secure a place in the team.
The pressure on the team is increasing
Ravi Shastri also reminded the young players about Cheteshwar Pujara. The former coach said: “This is a new team. Most of the players are young. But these young players have to prove themselves. One must remember that Pujara is ready to take his place in the team again. Pujara is consistently scoring points in the Ranji Trophy.”
Let us tell you that Shubman Gill has scored just one fifty in the last 11 Test innings. Gill managed to score just 207 runs in these 11 innings at an average of just 18. With the return of Virat Kohli and KL Rahul, it will be very difficult for Shubman Gill to save his place in the team. Furthermore, Sarfaraz Khan has also proven himself in domestic cricket. There is also pressure on the team management to give Sarfaraz a chance. While Cheteshwar Pujara has been away from the team since the final of the World Test Championship last year.
