After Virat Kohli, Can Shubhman Gill be the big batter to come from India: IND vs BAN  

India’s batters have got some valuable time in the middle as they took the Bangladesh bowlers to the cleaners during the first Test. 

Next Big Batter from India: During the first Test against Bangladesh, India’s top hitters enjoy some much-needed time in the middle. Particularly in fine form. Cheteshwar Pujara scored 90 runs off 203 balls in the first innings and then 102 runs off 130 balls in the second. Giving him his first century since January 2019.

However, Pujara wasn’t India’s only centurion in their second innings. In addition, on Friday, Shubman Gill, who is beginning the innings alongside acting skipper KL Rahul. In place of Rohit Sharma knocks his first Test century. Gill put up a 70-run opening stand with KL Rahul before scoring 110 off 152 balls as part of a 113-run partnership with Cheteshwar Pujara.

While he has scored an ODI century, this is Gill’s first Test ton. He had been dismissed in the 90s once before. When he scored off 146 during India’s famous win over Australia at The Gabba in January 2021.

He has already lost out on a few chances, But  He is a class act who may be thinking that after Virat Kohli. He can be the next significant batter to emerge from the Indian camp. Shubman Gill is a three-format player, and his admirers are looking forward to a lot more success from him.

After Gill scored a century and the possibility of Rohit returning for the second Test. There is a chance that India might slot the former into the middle order and sacrifice a spinner. 

Next Big Batter from India: Gill will not have any issues getting to the middle order. He will gel up to the playing conditions as an opener. Even if he is playing in the middle order for his state team. Being positioned in the middle of the order as a hitter is not a big concern. Because you are used to playing spin. When a middle order player is deployed as the opener. It can cause problems the opposite way around. Not accustomed to playing with a hard, new ball on a brand-new field. I believe Gill will be a good fit for the position. if he gets in to bat at No. 5 or any other position. When you play longer innings as an opener. You bat with the old ball and the spinners.
