The young batter Shubman Gill expressed his displeasure with his dismissal during the second ODI between India and Australia at the Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam on Sunday, March 19. Shubman Gill was dismissed for zero runs by left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc in the second ODI of the three-match series.
The visitors opted to bowl first after winning the toss in Visakhapatnam. Alex Carey and Nathan Ellis were included in the playing XI in place of Josh Inglis and Glenn Maxwell. The hosts also made two changes to the playing XI from the previous game, with skipper Rohit Sharma and spin-bowling all-rounder Axar Patel replacing Ishan Kishan and Shardul Thakur.

India lost an early wicket in the first over after being asked to bat first. Shubman Gill, who has been through the form of his life, failed to show an impact in the ongoing ODI series. The right-handed batter gave a simple catch to Marnus Labuschagne at the backward point while playing a push with hard hands.
Shubman Gill was angry with his dismissal immediately after playing the ball straight into the hands of the fielder. The 23-year-old got out in a similar fashion in the first match, giving the catch to Labuschagne at the point of Starc’s bowling. Gill scored 20 runs off 31 balls in the first match of the series in Mumbai.
