Rohit Sharma gives everyone the freedom to play their natural game: Shubman Gill | Cricket News

Featured in:


NEW DELHI: Talking about batting with skipper Rohit Sharma, young Indian batter Shubman Gill said the skipper gives everyone the freedom to play their natural game.
“It feels great to be able to open with him, especially knowing that all the focus is on him,” Gill was quoted as saying by the ‘ICC’.
“He’s someone who likes the other batters to go and just express himself and play the way I want to play the game.
“So in that nature, he gives the players full freedom for how they want to express their game,” Gill added.

Gill added that his and Rohit’s contrasting batting styles make their opening partnerships successful.
The partnership between the two openers is likely to play a vital role in the Men in Blues’ success in the Asia Cup and the World Cup.
In just nine innings, Gill and Rohit have amassed 685 runs while batting together in ODIs at an average of 76.11.
“I think because his (Rohit’s) targeted areas are a bit different (to mine). He loves to go aerial in the Powerplay,” Gill was quoted as saying by the ‘ICC’.
“And I’m someone who likes to find the gaps and keep getting those boundaries, and he’s someone who likes to hit sixes. So I think that combination works well,” he added.
India begin their Asia Cup campaign against arch-rivals Pakistan on September 2 in Kandy, and are slated to take on Australia in their Word Cup opener on October 8 in Chennai.
