IPL 2019: Great to Perform in Front of My Relatives – Shubman Gill
Kolkata Knight Riders batsman Shubman Gill is having a merry time while opening the innings for his franchise. The 19-year old batsman scored a fine knock of 65 runs off just 49 balls with the help of five fours and two sixes against Kings XI Punjab. The right-hander timed the ball with perfection as he played all the cricketing shots in his innings. This was the fourth IPL fifty for the young lad and his third fifty of this season.
Meanwhile, Shubman Gill and Chris Lynn added 62 runs for the opening stand. In fact, both the right-hander scored 62 in the powerplay overs to give a flying start to their team. Meanwhile, this is the first man of the match award for Shubman Gill in the IPL and he came up with his best at his home ground of Mohali with his whole family watching.
Gill had timed the ball with perfection.
Shubman Gill said while talking to the host broadcaster in the post-match presentation, “It feels great, my first MoM at my home ground. Can’t get better than this. It was important to build a partnership. I was striking it at 80-100 but the run-rate was still going around 9-10, so that’s when I decided I had to stay in there. Even some relatives from my village came to watch so it’s great to play in front of everyone. We have one more match to go, and it would be very nice if we can win that and make it into the playoffs”.
Meanwhile, Shubman Gill is going to be the future of Indian cricket. Gill played a fine knock and he would like to continue his good form going. The right-hander has amassed 287 runs in the ongoing season and he has scored three fifties.
Thus, Kolkata Knight Riders won the match by a comfortable margin of seven wickets and even had two overs to spare. The two-times champions still have a match to go and would need to win that to qualify for the last four. Furthermore, KKR will also like RCB to win against SRH.
KKR will play their last league match against Mumbai Indians on 5th May at Wankhede Stadium.
