Salman Butt on Shubman Gill: India’s rising star, Shubman Gill, is widely considered the next big thing after Virat Kohli. But somehow the youngster has failed to perform in international T20Is after a dazzling show in the IPL 2023. This resulted in his exclusion from the ongoing T20I series against Afghanistan. Now former Pakistan skipper Salman Butt has commented on Gill’s current situation.
Salman Butt on Shubman Gill: ‘He is Wasting His Talent’
Salman Butt feels that Gill is failing to bat for a longer duration. Though Butt recognizes that Gill is highly talented, his ‘haste’ bites him back most of the time.
“I believe Shubman Gill hasn’t done justice to his talent in recent matches. He’s a highly skilled player, and the haste he’s displaying doesn’t do justice to his capabilities,” he said.
Butt also asked Gill to play the ball instead of trying to do something extraordinary every time.
“He simply has to keep batting without trying anything extraordinary. It’s crucial to understand that, even if you’re the best batter globally, you can’t control every ball. You must respond to the ball rather than trying to dictate it,” he said.
