“I am angry with myself,” says the 22-year-old cricketer, Shubham Gill. In the ongoing West Indies ODI series led by Shikhar Dhawan. The opening batsman, Shubham Gill, despite his good knocks of 64 and 43 runs in the first and second match respectively was much appreciated but he personally feels that he could have done much better. He said,

“After getting those starts, unfortunately, I couldn’t convert them into a hundred and I am angry with myself for that,”

He himself supported the fact that his confidence shot-up after the two innings he played but paralley he was enraged within himself that he could convert those two-digits into a 3-digit figure.

“They were a huge confidence booster. West Indies are a good team and we posted two good totals, one while batting first and the other while chasing. 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,”

Speaking about the West Indies surfaces, he said that it suited him well and did not have much lateral movement. He added,

“It’s been harder against the old ball which stops a little but overall batting here has been a really good experience,”

But in the third ODI against the West Indies, he’s (Shubham) is pretty confident that he’ll not repeat his past mistakes, and try to score big. In his place, it was first Ruturaj Gaikwad and Ishan Kishan to be taken, but the selector’s committee stuck with Shubham Gill only, perhaps because of his nature on the pitch or for some other positive reason, we cannot say.

Shubham was also glad that he was given the chance to open in the series with very experienced Shikhar Dhawan and for which he said,

“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,”

West Indies Vs. India’s third ODI is going to be played today at the Queen’s Park Oval Stadium once again. India is already leading the series by 2-0. Let’s see who will win the match.
