India opener Shubman Gill has been in tremendous form since his return to the ODIs. The batter scored 64 and 43 in the two matches in the ongoing ODI series against West Indies. However, the batter said in the media conference that he was angry with himself for missing out on a hundred. He admitted that he was happy to contribute to the team.
Shubman Gill added that he was grateful for the opportunity and opening the innings for the country felt special for him. “After getting those starts, unfortunately, I couldn’t convert them into a hundred and I am angry with myself for that,” said Gill. The batter also revealed that he would be aiming for a big inning in the final ODI against West Indies.
He added that he had been getting good starts and would convert them into something big. “Hopefully, I will go big in the third match. The kind of starts I have been getting, I will aim to convert those into big innings,” Gill said. Shubman Gill also added that he got to learn a lot from Shikhar Dhawan and said that he loved the experience. He said that it was important for him to pay back for the faith they had in him. Gill said that it was great to open with Dhawan.
“To be given to play a game for India, especially at the international level, feels good. It was important for me to pay that trust back and I was happy to contribute to the team’s cause. Opening the batting alongside Shikhar has been great. He has so much experience, has played all over the world and I get to learn a lot,” Gill said.
India won the second ODI against West Indies by 2 wickets. Axar Patel scored a match-winning 64. The final ODI of the series will be played at the same venue today. India would look to seal the series with a whitewash. We are in for a nail-biter once again.
