Promising batter Shubman Gill has impressed one and all for his brilliant batting since the last six months. During the period, Gill has smashed six centuries across competitions. While three of those tons came in ODIs, including a record double ton against New Zealand, one came in T20Is, where he broke  Virat Kohli’s record for the highest-ever score by an Indian batter, and another in the Border-Gavaskar Test series. The emerging batter also registered his maiden Indian Premier League (IPL) ton recently.

Gill has a successful IPL 2023 so far where he is the highest-scoring India batter with a tally of 576 runs in 13 innings with four fifty-plus knocks.

As per former India cricketer Robin Uthappa, Gill has the potential to become as big as Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar.

“I definitely see Gill having the potential of becoming someone as big as Virat Kohli or Sachin Tendulkar. I certainly think he has got the stuff. He is a phenomenal player who is in exceptional form and is playing some exceptional cricket at the moment,” said Uthappa.

Uthappa also heaped praise on Rajasthan Royals’ Yashasvi Jaiswal. He predicted that both Gill and Jaiswal are the two youngsters to be the next big thing of Indian cricket.
“I feel and believe personally that Shubman Gill and Yashasvi Jaiswal are the two next big things of Indian cricket,” Uthappa added.
