Harbhajan Singh, the former Indian cricketer, praised Shubman Gill as the future of Indian cricket and even compared him to Virat Kohli, highlighting their contrasting styles. In the Super Sunday evening match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Gujarat Titans, both Kohli and Gill showcased their exceptional batting skills by scoring centuries. However, it was Gill’s innings that outshined the veteran’s, marking a memorable day in IPL history with three centuries being scored in two games on the same day.
Gill’s scorching form continued as he registered back-to-back centuries, guiding Gujarat Titans to a remarkable victory at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Reflecting on Gill’s performance, Harbhajan Singh expressed, “Shubman Gill constructs his innings brilliantly. He possesses a unique persona with a relaxed elegance, which is in contrast to Virat Kohli’s intensity. Like Kohli, Gill effortlessly plays a wide range of shots, but he showcases a less aggressive body language. He is a distinctive character and holds immense potential as a talent for India.” Speaking on Star Sports’ Cricket Live, Harbhajan Singh shared his admiration for Gill’s abilities.
