Shubman Gill.

Batting prodigy Shubman Gill has been selected to India‘s limited overs side for the tour of New Zealand later this month.

The talented Punjab batsman is just 19 but has been declared ready for international cricket after a stupendous 12 months.

He first grabbed headlines during the Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand in 2018 where he was the player of the tournament after scoring 372 runs in five games. He was part of the India ‘A’ team that toured New Zealand last month and had a great first-class season for his state Punjab, scoring 790 runs in 10 innings at an average of just under 100.

“At this time last year we went for the World Cup and now I have got an India call-up. Yes, last one year has been great but I would see this as a result of work put in by me ever since I started playing the game,” Gill said.
