He faced 66 balls and scored 23 runs in the IND vs ENG 1st Test.

Ind vs Eng Test: On the second day of the first Test in Hyderabad, Shubman Gill once again failed to take advantage of a good start and lost his wicket. He looked comfortable on the opening day and showed composure on the second day. However, the pressure of dot balls increased on him and the right-hander went for a wide shot, resulting in his downfall.

Shubman Gill tried to flick Tom Hartley’s ball through the gap between mid-on and short-midwicket but could not keep the ball in the middle and was caught by Ben Duckett.

He faced 66 deliveries and scored 23 runs. Gill is going through a bad phase and has not been able to score 50 runs for a long time.

The young batsman had a similar story in the two-match Test series against South Africa. His form has declined since the management moved him to No. 3. The batsman also agreed to the move but could not justify his place recently.

Virat Kohli is likely to be out when he returns to the team. This veteran player will not be able to play in the first two Tests due to personal reasons. He had left the team base in Hyderabad a few days ago to deal with family issues.

On the other hand, Gill averages above 30 despite playing 21 Test matches. He has scored 2 centuries and 4 half-centuries so far. His last good score came in March 2023. Gill had scored a century in the only innings of the fourth Test against Australia at his favorite venue – the Narendra Modi Stadium. The game ended in a tie.

Fans criticized him for another failure. Here are some of the reactions.

Big concern ahead of ICC T20 World Cup 2024

He has not done anything impressive in his T20 career so far. Gill has scored only 335 runs in 14 matches. In the shortest format, he has just 1 century and 1 half-century to his name. He was seen struggling in the recent series against Afghanistan. He could not do anything special in three matches, due to which he had to be dropped.

This batsman would like to score big in the Indian Premier League. He scored more than 800 runs last season and won the Orange Cap.

If he does not perform for Gujarat Titans in IPL 2024, he could miss selection for the ICC T20 World Cup in June.

India ahead in 1st Test

The visitors were bowled out for 246 in their first innings, with only captain Ben Stokes scoring a half-century. The buzz of bazball’s dominance took a back seat as England batsmen failed to get ahead of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, who took three wickets each. Jasprit Bumrah and Axar Patel added two wickets each to their bowling figures.

England are in India for five Test matches and are eyeing a historic win in the subcontinent country since 2012.
