Shubman Gill from Gujarat Titans declared his third century of the season “probably” the best of his IPL career. The polished opener believes his technical adjustments to his batting have paid off spectacularly.

Shubman exuded the confidence of a man at the top of his game, ready to respond to whatever the Mumbai Indians threw at him. When he walked off to a standing ovation after a 60-ball 129, it was clear that another chapter in Gill’s T20 reinvention had been written.


Gill’s batting is a series of simple batting movements; one frame transitions into the next. A stable base, a still head, a slight and unexaggerated back lift, and rapid but leisurely foot movement. It’s all according to the coaching guidebook. But, most of all, there’s the composure – he can send the ball wherever he wants.

All eyes on Gill

Shubman Gill is a promising young cricketer. He was born in Fazilka, Punjab, India, on September 8, 1999.

Off the pitch, Gill acknowledged that expectations remain, but once on the pitch, his attention turns to contributing to the team’s success. He emphasized the importance of starting well in order to attain major results.

According to Gill, his strategy consists of playing ball by ball and over by over. The momentum he received from hitting three sixes in an over convinced him that today could be his day. While recognizing the favourable batting conditions, he emphasized the importance of belief as a batter. Gill showed confidence after a great international season and a strong performance in the previous IPL season. He finished by saying that a strong start gives him confidence in his ability to score runs effectively.
