‘He Is Next Big Thing In Indian Cricket After Virat Kohli And BCCI…’ Wasim Jaffer Gives A Noteworthy Comment On Indian Rising Star

Indian team is playing the first test match against Bangladesh in Chattogram, in which men in blue have given 513 runs target to Bangladeshi team to win the clash. In the first innings of the match, Indian veteran batter Pujara scored 90 off 203 and helped the Indian team to score 404 runs; in the second innings, two Indian batters, Shubhman Gill and Pujara, both scored a century and helped the Indian team to set huge total against the Bangladeshi team.

Shubhman Gill is the new emerging player of the Indian team in all the formats and his maiden century came against Bangladesh. Praising him, former Indian opener Wasim Jaffer stated that he is the next star of the Indian team in all formats and after Virat Kohli is the new classic player for men in blue.

“It is good that it came. He missed out on a couple of opportunities before but I am happy this monkey is off his back. He is a class player, I will probably go ahead and say that after Virat Kohli, he is the next big batter to come out of the Indian camp. He is a three-format player and I am hoping to see a lot more good things from Shubman Gill,” said former India opener Wasim Jaffer.

Now, regular skipper Rohit Sharma is fit and will play the next test match, so in the next encounter, the Indian team management will try him in the middle batting order instead of any spinner.

“It is an old saying, when the batters don’t perform, the bowlers get dropped. So I am guessing there will be one bowler less and one batter added in. We will see that one spinner might be less in the second Test,” said Jaffer.

Wasim Jaffer added that Gill would have no problems batting in the middle order. He is already playing in the middle order for his state team. If he gets a chance to play at No. 5 or any position, it may suit him to play there.

“He has played in the middle order for his state team and he will get used to it. Openers getting slotted in the middle order is not a big deal because you are used to playing spin. It is the other way around which can trouble because when a middle order player is used as an opener, he is not used to playing the hard new ball on a fresh pitch. If Gill is slotted to bat in No.5 or any other position, I think he will be well suited to play there. As an opener, when you play bigger innings you play the old ball and the spinners on a wearing pitch. So I am pretty sure he will get used to it easily,” Wasim Jaffer further added.
