Vijay Shankar and Shubman Gill, on Sunday, were called in as covers for Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul in India's squad for Australia and New Zealand respectively. He has largely opened or come in one drop in his 50-over career and having toured New Zealand quite recently with the India A side, his know-how of the conditions will hold him in good stead. "I'm looking forward to meeting everyone in the team". It is just an initial step.

"He is a young guy whose batting I like to watch". Finally, he was going to realise his dream of sharing the dressing room with his "idol". "The way India beat Australia (in Tests) under Virat paaji shows his leadership qualities".

"Shubman has shown tremendous form over the last two years and his double hundred against Tamil Nadu was a special innings". I'm so excited to play under his captaincy. He woke me and my wife Keart up last night and gave the news about his selection. Between that and his imminent trip to New Zealand as part of the senior team, the top-order batsman showed he could also play finisher, even on a stage as big as the IPL, and has built a first-class record so good that he's about to become an worldwide cricketer almost 14 months after making his first-class debut.

"We shifted to Mohali in April 2007 to support Shubman's cricketing career". Let me put it straight, he is very much in our World Cup plans. Right things come at the right time.

Will he be given chances ahead of the mega tournament is for the Indian think-tank to answer.

"I think our wingers attacked the space better than in the last five or six matches but we need to attack the box better". We slept for 20, 25 minutes, so at the end of the first half, we were in trouble.

The Highlands MP added: "I would like the House of Commons now to take control because the Prime Minister has failed to give leadership".

In the IPL 2018 auction, Gill then drew keen interest from four franchises with Kolkata Knight Riders ultimately snaring him for INR 1.80 Cr. He understands my batting really well.

"I was so overjoyed with the news that I could not resist the temptation of waking my father (Lakhwinder Singh), who was fast asleep", he added.

He finished the World Cup as the second-highest run-getter with 372 runs in six games that included three half-centuries and a century against Pakistan in the semi-finals. One has to really do well and make a mark.

"You are just watching and observing how they move as I said I am a little from the black side (influenced by West Indies culture) so I have to see how they (women) move first", he said. "When you have a mentor like him you ought to do well. I learnt to be mentally strong from him and how it is important to go for long knocks", said Shubman with a glint in his eyes.
