Shubman Gill, the young and dynamic Indian cricket sensation, is on the cusp of achieving a significant milestone in his ODI career. At just 24 years old, Gill has already garnered attention as one of the brightest prospects in world cricket. His stellar performances in recent tournaments, including the Asia Cup 2023, have left both fans and experts alike in awe.
Gill’s form in 2023
During the Asia Cup 2023, Gill showcased his exceptional batting prowess, amassing a total of 302 runs with an astonishing average of 75.50. His contributions played a pivotal role in India’s triumph in the tournament. Moreover, these performances catapulted him to the second spot in the ICC ODI batter rankings, with a rating of 814.
However, Gill has his sights set on the top spot, which is currently occupied by Pakistan’s captain, Babar Azam, boasting a rating of 857.

Both teams will be keen to fine-tune their strategies and gain insights into each other’s tactics before the World Cup begins. The opening match of the series takes place at the Inderjit Singh Bindra Stadium in Mohali, promising cricket enthusiasts an exciting clash.
