Indian Premier League 2021 is all set to get underway with only four days left in its commencement. Kolkata Knight Riders have reached Mumbai and they have begun with their preparations for the tournament. Every year, the cricket fans get to watch a run-fest on the field. With stage set, Shubman Gill has come up with an opinion on what every batsmen needs to do in order to get successfull in Indian Premier League.
Shubman Gill plays for Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League. He has done immensely well with the bat as an opener for KKR in the past couple of seasons. In a very short span, he has become an integral part of former IPL champions. So far he has managed 931 runs in just 41 IPL appearances.
Shubman Gill Feels Batsmen Should Always Remain Ready For Any Type Of Situation
In an interview, Gill said that the most important thing for a batsman is to adapt to the conditions. As per him, the strike rate is not a big thing to focus on. He added that every player should bat according to the match conditions like if a team wants batsmen to bat at a strike rate of 200 then they should remain ready to adapt.
“I think strike-rate is kind of overrated. It’s all about how you adapt to a certain situation. If the team demands you to play with a strike rate of 200 you should be able to do it. If the team demands you to play at a strike rate of 100, you should be able to do it. It’s just about adapting to the match situation. There shouldn’t be a certain pattern to your game where you are only able to play one kind of game and not being able to adapt to different situations,” said Gill as quoted by India Today.
Shubman Gill made his international debut in the Border-Gavaskar series 2020-21. Earlier, he said that when Team India collapsed at a low score of 36 runs in the first Test, he was determined to play a good knock whenever he gets his turn to play for Team India in the Test series against Australia.
“Seeing our batsmen getting out for such low scores, I think, it kind of motivated me more to do well whenever I got a chance. I was really determined to do well. Before the Adelaide Test only I knew that I’ll be playing the second match in Melbourne because that’s when Virat bhai was leaving so Ravi Sir told me that I’ll be playing from the second Test onwards,” concluded Gill.
