Sunil Gavaskar extends heartwarming wish to Shubman Gill after his second Test century

Indian opener Shubman Gill has received high praise from cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar after scoring his second Test century in the ongoing Border Gavaskar Trophy against Australia. Gill’s century on Day 3 of the final Test proved crucial in helping India get back on track after a tough couple of days.

Gavaskar congratulated Gill on his impressive knock and wished him continued success, saying, “This is your second century. I wish your century count grows bigger and you make 8,000, 10,000, 15,000 runs.” The former India captain also praised Gill’s performance against the top Australian bowlers, noting that he batted with confidence and ease.

Gill’s century, which included 12 fours and a six, came off 235 balls before he was dismissed by Nathan Lyon. He formed crucial partnerships with Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara, and Virat Kohli, helping India finish at 289/3 in 99 overs.

Gavaskar’s praise for Gill comes as no surprise, as the 23-year-old has been earmarked as a future star of Indian cricket. Gill’s ability to handle pressure situations and his impressive technique have drawn comparisons to some of the game’s greatest batsmen, and his performance in the Border Gavaskar Trophy has only served to reinforce his credentials as a top-order batsman.

As India looks to build for the future, Gill’s continued success at the international level will be crucial. With the likes of Kohli and Rohit Sharma nearing the end of their careers, Gill’s emergence as a top-class opener could not have come at a better time for Indian cricket.
