In the TATA IPL 2023, Shubman Gill showed his happiness after hitting a century for the first time against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). Gill, who played in his first IPL match against SRH, felt as though his life had gone full circle.
“I made my IPL debut against SRH and got my first hundred against them, so life has come a full circle,” Shubhman Gill said.
The batter stressed the value of concentrating on the moment at hand rather than dwelling on previous performances.
“Hopefully many more to come. It’s all about the bowlers and situation and I don’t dwell much on my last innings. It is important to focus on the situation in front,” the GT batter added.
Gill emphasized the delight he had after smashing a six off Abhishek Sharma and that he had told Sharma beforehand that this was his plan. In domestic T20 cricket, the pair opens for Punjab.
“The six off Abhishek Sharma was the most pleasing thing for me. I told him that if you bowl to me I’m gonna hit you for a six,” Gill concluded.
