The young opener Shubman Gill was dismissed on March 1 during the third Test match between India and Australia in the ongoing Border Gavaskar Trophy (BGT) at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. Shubman Gill was unable to take advantage of the opportunity to make a meaningful impact since he missed the first two Tests of the four-match series.
The hosts won the toss and decided to bat first for the first time in this series. Due to his poor performances, KL Rahul was substituted in India’s starting lineup for the most recent game, while Mohammed Shami was given a break to rest up. Shubman Gill and Umesh Yadav were given the chance to take part in the current series.
Shubman Gill has been knocking on the Test team’s door with his current performance. The 23-year-old batsman joined an exclusive group of five Indians who have scored centuries in all three forms. In Bangladesh, he scored his first Test century, but once Rohit Sharma returned, he was unable to maintain his position in the starting XI.
Shubman Gill was completely at ease as he hit a boundary with the opening ball of his bat. He used some bold strokes before being defeated by left-arm spinner Matthew Kuhnemann and scored 21 runs in just 18 balls in one short inning.
The right-handed hitter was promptly taken out of the game after skipper Rohit Sharma. Steve Smith swiftly intercepted the superb pass Kuhnemann made that eliminated Gill’s outer edge. The Australian captain, who had previously had trouble with slips, finished the dismissal with a simple catch.
Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Ravindra Jadeja, and Srikar Bharat are the members of the Indian starting XI (wk),
Players from Australia include Usman Khawaja, Travis Head, Marnus Labuschagne, Steven Smith (captain), Peter Handscomb, Cameron Green, Alex Carey (wicketkeeper), Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, Todd Murphy, and Matthew Kuhnemann.
