Shubman Gill's Big Statement Ahead of Third ODI Shubman Gill is on a tour of New Zealand with the Indian team. The Indians gave a big statement ahead of the third ODI. He said he is not looking so far and is looking forward to playing the third ODI. In the post-match press conference, he said looking forward to playing the third ODI at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch and hoping there is no rain there.
Rain is the trending cricket news in the Indian tour of NZ. The first T20 match was abandoned without bowling a ball, and the toss couldn’t happen because the intensity of the rain was high. Rain obstructed the third T20 match, but thanks to the DLS method, we got the result. Rain again came in the second ODI, and the match ended without any result.
Gill was looking a little frustrated because the second ODI ended after only 12.5 overs. The India tour of NZ is impacted due to the rain, and the latest cricketing news is three out of five matches are impacted due to the rain.
Gill added when the rain comes, over gets reduced, which is slightly frustrating. Going in and out of the field constantly is irritating because you don’t know how many overs are remaining, and it makes planning a little bit difficult. Gill is the backup opener of the Indian team, and he is playing against the NZ in the absence of Rohit Sharma. If we see the cricket news, Gil might be the choice of the Indian selector as a backup opener in the 2023 ODI world cup.
This series is part of the preparation for the ODI world cup 2023. Despite the rain, India is in the top position in the Super League points table and qualified for the world cup, and NZ jumped to the third position.
Since cricket is a money-rich game, the reporter asked him about the idea of the rooftops in the cricket stadium because playing indoors is not an option. He said it depends on the board and mentioned that rain is irritating to the fans and players. He said playing indoors is not an option, but we can think about a closed roof to minimize the effects of rain.
He asked about playing in the 2023 ODI world cup, and he responded that currently, he is not looking too far and trying to make the most of current opportunities. According to the latest cricket news, he wants to play the long innings.
New Zealand is a good memory for Shubman Gill. He played the under-19 world cup here and played his debut ODI game. He has played 14 ODI games for India and scored 674 runs, the average is 61.27. In his small career, he has hit one century and 4 half centuries.
