Former Pakistan cricketer Ramiz Raja praised Shubman Gill, describing him as a miniature version of Rohit Sharma.
Former Pakistan cricketer Ramiz Raza has turned punditry since he was sacked as the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
Raja is closely following the ODI series between India and New Zealand and has been impressed with the way a young opening batsman Shabman Gill has applied himself.
The former Pakistani cricketer heaped praise on Gill while comparing him to India captain Rohit Sharma. In fact, Ramiz referred to Gill as a “mini Rohit”.
“Shubman Gill is like a miniature Rohit Sharma. He has more time and is interesting. He has a lot of potential. Aggression will also develop over time. He doesn’t have to do anything different.
“Recently, he scored a double century,” Raja said in a video posted on his YouTube channel.
Because they have great batsmen like Rohit Sharma, India had an easy hitting team.
He does an outstanding job. Because he is a great hook-and-pull shot striker, chasing 108 becomes easy,” he added.
Also, Raja emphasized on a few technical aspects of the Indian batting unit’s performance.
Batsmen should take advantage of the top order that India’s front-foot batting looks poor.
Although it is easy to hit off the back foot, according to Raja there are some drawbacks after throwing the ball.
India’s bowling set the stage for an 8-wicket win in the second ODI. Even Ramiz admitted that his bowling unit can be blamed for the team’s success in ODI and Test formats.
Raja claimed that despite India’s historically great batting, their recent success in ODI and Test cricket is largely due to their bowling.
