‘He does not take cricket or life too seriously’ : Pat Cummins praises young India batsman ahead of IPL 2021
Pat Cummins enjoyed an active-packed series against India Down Under. This pacer of Australia took the most number of wickets during the contest being in top form of the four match test series. Shubman Gill too played his debut match in this series and was seen like an assured batter at the top. By announcing his arrival in the cricket world, he played against Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood with comfort & confidence.
Gill barely missed his century in the Brisbane Test but acquired applause from numerous previous and recent cricketers for his batting.
Kolkata Knight Rider’s (KKR) pace leader Cummins shares his fascination for Gill and says that he likes Gill’s relaxation in the midst of the game.
While KKR was doing a live from Instagram before their match on Sunday against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SHR), the Aussie pacer told, “He’s good, he’s young. He wants to take the game on and is really relaxed.”
Appreciating the youngstar cricketer of India, the Aussie star aka the world’s no. 1 Test pacer has added to his comment, “He doesn’t take cricket or life too seriously. So it’s good fun to be with him”. The two will be seen together on the sunday match after the exciting test series Down Under.
Through his debut outing the 21-year-old batsman becomes the reason of the epic victory of India Team in that test series. Gill scored 91 runs in the 2nd innings of the fourth & final test in Brisbane.
Cummins said, “I get along really well with Shubman. It was a great debut for him last summer in Australia. We had some good contests out in the field. I really feel happy for him, he had a great start to his Test career.”
During the COVID-19 pandemic, no IPL team will be allowed to play at their home ground and that’s why KKR too will not play at Eden Gardens.
