Always good when you convert a start to a big one: Shubman Gill

Ind vs SL: Shubman Gill Scores Second ODI Century
Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli

During the mid-innings break, Shubman Gill spoke about his knock. The innings were furthermore special because it was his first one at home. “Felt very good. Always good when you convert a start to a big one. We were not really looking at any target, just tried to see how the wicket plays. When you are batting with someone like Rohit Bhai or Virat Bhai, you don’t have to do much. We were just talking about whom to target and when to target. We didn’t score much in the first few overs, so then we discussed on scoring faster. He (Kohli) is amazing, I remember watching him as a kid and it feels great to share the crease with him today,” he said.

With the help of Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli’s innings, the men in blue gave a mammoth target of 391. Throughout the Ind vs SL series, the hosts have dominated and outplayed the opposition. Captain Rohit Sharma too started well but unfortunately, couldn’t reach half-century. Nonetheless, the series has already been sealed. It has been a complete performance from India in all aspects. India’s next assignment is against New Zealand which will start on Wednesday, 18 January.
