Indian opener Subman Gill smashed 208 runs off 149 balls with 19 fours and 9 sixes in the first ODI against New Zealand in Hyderabad yesterday. It was indeed a classic type of innings. Ishaan Kishan’s Kattadi Darbar is a classy one.
But Punjab player and Gujarat Titans player Gurkeerat Mann has said that Subman Gill’s father said with displeasure that Subman Gill should have done this earlier and should have scored the double century against Sri Lanka.
In the history of ODI cricket, he became the 5th player to score a double century in ODIs after Sachin Tendulkar, Sehwag, Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan. Earlier, Subman Gill scored a century against Sri Lanka when they gave a 3-0 whitewash. However, Gurkeerat Mann says that Subman Gill’s father expressed his displeasure that Subman Gill had time to score a double century in the match against Sri Lanka but did not.
Gurkeerat Maan has gone to Subman Gill’s house. Then Subman had a conversation with Gill’s father. Then Subman Gill’s father told Gurkeerat Mann, “Look how he is getting out. After scoring a century, there is plenty of time to score a double. You don’t always get starts and games like this, you have to make the most of them. “When will Subman turn around and learn,” he said with displeasure.
Subman Gill’s father Lakwinder is a big fan of cricket. The first thing happened was that when his son Subman took 91 runs in Brisbane and got out without getting a century, Gurkeerat Mann said about Subman’s father Lakwinder, “Lakwinder has a lot of expectations from his son Subman Gill. All of us had high expectations for Subman Gill from the very beginning. Subman Gill’s final turn of a hundred into a double would surely have satisfied father Lakwinder.
Subman Gill takes 40 runs and 50 runs in a consistent manner. The century did not reach him. Parm is not a problem. Because if one is not in form then it is difficult to reach double digit score. He starts well, settles down, but gets out in the middle. For a talent like him, the pressure to always perform well is added. “Everybody expects Subman Gill to score big,” said Gurkeerat Singh Mann.
Yes! Subman Gill can be watched if he plays, as he is a very stylish player, it is true that if Subman Gill is out soon, the game will get tired and many will get tired. In this case, yesterday’s innings was great in terms of strike rate, but the game did not break tradition for that. Subman Gill has proved that you can score big hundreds with classic strokes, even in ODIs.
