Gill showed power in top 3
At the beginning of the year, there was a dilemma as to who would open the innings with skipper Rohit Sharma. In fact, Ishaan Kishan had staked his claim with a double century in the last ODI of Bangladesh tour, while Shubman Gill was consistently performing well. In such a situation, Rohit chose Gill over Kishan and this opener stood up to the captain’s decision. In the series against Sri Lanka, Gill scored 207 runs with the help of a century, while he also scored a double century in the first ODI against New Zealand. During this, Gill showed the ability to play long innings.

Kohli scored 283 runs in three matches against Sri Lanka at an average of over 141. However, in the first match against New Zealand, King Kohli returned cheaply to the pavilion. Fans will expect another century from Kohli in the upcoming two matches.
