The Goal This Year Is To Win The T20 World Cup And ICC World Test Championship: Shubman Gill

India’s latest batting sensation Shubman Gill has revealed he was livid with himself after missing out on a well-deserved century in the fourth and final Test against Australia at the Gabba. After being benched for the first Test, the 21-year old made his debut in the second game at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground and went from strength to strength with each passing day.

In six innings, he scored an impressive 259 runs with the help of two fifties and an average of nearly 52. His best knock came in the second innings at the Gabba when India were chasing 328. Shubman Gill scored a brilliant 91, showing impressive technique against short balls as he laid the foundation for India’s famous win.

He was looking at ease against the Australian bowlers and was set to score his maiden century before edging a Nathan Lyon delivery to the slip cordon. And while he has received praise from all over for his stunning knock, the batsman himself was not happy over his failure to score a century.

“Really, really disappointed. We were chasing 300-odd runs and I worked really hard for the first 50 runs. I got out on a ball that wasn’t the best one bowled by Nathan Lyon. I could have scored a boundary on that ball,” Shubman Gill was quoted as saying by Forbes India.

Shubman Gill further said Team India’s two main targets this year are to win the ICC T20 World Cup at home as well as the World Test Championship. He also expressed his desire to play in the T20 World Cup for India and wanted to make an impact if given an opportunity.

“The obvious goal this year is to win the T20 World Cup being played in India, if I get a chance in the team. Then we have the first Test championship, and if we are able to win that, it will be a great endorsement for Test cricket. With T20 and one-dayers coming in, people aren’t that keen to watch Tests. If we win that, it will give Test cricket a lot of momentum,” Shubman Gill said.

Shubman Gill is yet to make his debut in T20Is. But the way he has performed in IPL and domestic cricket, it won’t be surprising if he is picked for this year’s T20 World Cup. The youngster has played three Tests and as many ODIs so far in international cricket.
