India opener Shubman Gill needs no introduction. The star batsman has had a brilliant year in 2023. He has been in terrific form in all three formats of the game. With 1584 runs and five centuries in just 29 matches, Gill is currently the leading run-scorer in ODI cricket this year.

Despite all the achievements, Gill is still sad after India’s loss to Australia in the World Cup 2023 Final. In a recent media interaction, the talented batsman said that the loss somewhat dampened his mood.

However, he promised that he would improve the situations in the upcoming T20 World Cup.

“I think it’s been a great year for me but having to miss out on the World Cup obviously dampened the mood a bit, but fortunately we have another World Cup coming up next year so we are all looking forward to it,” Shubman told CNBC-TV 18.

He further added, “In the next one year, there is the World Cup coming, a very important Test series coming up in Australia, and I think this year is not over yet, we have the Test Series, coming up in South Africa as well. I think the Test Series in Australia and the South Africa are going to be really big ones and those are the matches I am really looking forward to.”

On the other hand, Gill will take over Gujarat Titans after the departure of all-rounder Hardik Pandya who rejoined Mumbai Indians. Gill will lead the GT team as the skipper while Afghanistan star Rashid Khan will be his vice-captain.
