Shubman Gill has been a star in the making for the Kolkata Knight Riders as he has had some good starts and has looked in really good touch in the UAE phase of IPL 2021. He hasn’t had the big scores under his belt to show off but does look like getting a big one sooner or later.

Gill has always been portrayed as a player who has all the potential and he played an important part in the previous game against Delhi Capitals in a low and tricky run chase. He scored 30 off 33 balls hitting one four and two sixes in the innings and he hasn’t been afraid to take on the bowling as well. He will be looking to make a big score against the Punjab Kings.
