"Best Player Of This Generation": Yuvraj Singh's Massive Prediction For India Star
Yuvraj Singh, a former all-rounder for India, thinks that Shubman Gill, the team's top batter, has the ability to be the greatest player of this generation. Gill is undoubtedly one of Indian cricket's rising talents.
The 24-year-old is one of the Indian team's greatest batsmen. But, based on the upward trend in his batting graph over time, it appears that Gill's personal best is still to come.
When India's three-match ODI series against Australia came to an end recently, the right-handed batter was the leading run scorer.
"Shumman Gill has the capacity to emerge as this generation's finest player. It is a hard-working guy. He has had that mindset since he was in his late teens or early twenties. From childhood, he has put in four times the amount of labour as the average male.
Yuvraj Singh told The Week, "He can be the player of this era, whatever I have worked with him on."
"Gill scored ninety-one runs in a Test match that India won. On his first tour to Australia, he also scored two fifties—a feat I'm not sure how many players have accomplished. He will undoubtedly score runs in South Africa, Australia, and England, he continued.
Gill's form declined following an incredible Indian Premier League 2023 season, but he later staged an incredible recovery. The batter finished as the Asia Cup 2023's top scorer, amassing 302 runs at an average of 75.50 across six games.
In the ODI series that ensued, Gill amassed 178 runs at an average of 89 over two matches against Australia.
After underperforming against the West Indies, particularly in the two-match Test series and five Twenty20 Internationals this year, Gill faced intense criticism and scrutiny. Nevertheless, his return in the Asia Cup has elevated the batter to the top of India's 2023 cricket world cup roster of important players.
