Shubman Gill’s Perspective: Scoring at No. 3 Holds Special Significance

In Test cricket, Shubman Gill got back on track with his third century against England in Visakhapatnam. This was after a rough stretch. He had only scored over 35 once in the last 12 games before this one (104 off 147 balls).

Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Ravindra Jadeja will be back as first-choice picks at some point, even if not in this series. This put a lot of pressure on the No. 3 player as he started his innings today with the score at 29 for 1 and then fell to 30 for 2.

“It was very important and very satisfying for me to score runs at No. 3,” Gill told the press conference. It felt good, especially given the situation. We lost Yashasvi and Rohit [Sharma] bhai, who gave us great top-order starts. I think we needed a big lead and as many runs as possible.”

Batting Philosophy

Despite his poor grades, Gill stated he didn’t feel stressed. This is part of the game, I think. You’ll be praised for your performance. You’re not doing well, but others are too. I think knowing your strategy when you bat is most crucial. I prefer to play percentage cricket, take chances, and assess the situation.

“Authenticity and running style are crucial. Being over-defensive or over-aggressive and trying to be somebody you’re not prolongs innings and makes it hard to get out of. That was my Test match mindset. I’ll play like previously.”

Gill’s Admission on DRS Save

A Shubman Gill century usually ends with a bow at the marker, but not this time. Of course, it felt fantastic. I imagined the team’s work was incomplete. So it was a brief party.”

Umpire Marais Erasmus gave him out lbw to Tom Hartley, thus he could have been removed for 4. He said his batting partner encouraged him to use DRS to save him. He survived other near misses.

“The first one, which I nicked, actually I didn’t feel it,” Gill informed the host. “Shreyas [Iyer] on the other hand told me to take the review just in case it was umpire’s call and once I saw it on the big screen, the deflection, I was pleased.”

DRS Save

Shubman Gill congratulated his coaches and stated India led 70-30 heading into the fourth day.

“I appreciate Rohit bhai, Rahul [Dravid], and Vikram [Rathore] sir’s support. They have always inspired and supported me. With guys like that motivating you, you’ll always be on top.”

Father’s Presence

Gill’s father was in the crowd as well and he thinks he might be in for a bit of a scolding when he meets him back at the hotel because he fell reverse-sweeping when the tea break was approaching.

“I saw the point fielder go there and I thought on that wicket it was a percentage shot but maybe not in that situation when there were five overs to tea. Maybe I should’ve just played those overs and got the runs after tea.”
