The former off-spinner also hopes that Gill will continue to play for India for many years and will lead the team one day.

“I hope that he will continue to play for India for many years and one day he will lead the team as well. Then only his father will get satisfied. The satisfaction will be for both him and Punjab because he is our son,”, the former right-arm spinner further added. 

Gill was born in Fazilka City in Punjab. Since the place lacked proper cricketing facilities, his father shifted to Mohali to provide better facilities for his son.
