A former opener of the Indian Cricket Team gives advice to Shubhman Gill about the areas he needs to work on while batting at No. 3

In the test series between India and the West Indies cricket team, Shubman Gill batted at the no. 3 position. He is slowly getting used to this position, as he has not scored any big runs from this spot. Former opener of the Indian Cricket Team, Wasim Jaffer, said that Gill needs to learn the trade of batting at No. 3, especially on slow and low pitches.
Jaffer said, "Looking at the bigger picture, he wants to bat there for a longer period. But the start has not been the way he wanted. In this Test match and in this innings, he had a good chance, the wicket was good, and the team had gotten off to a good start. I felt he played a little loose, and he will obviously be disappointed with that dismissal, and that is where he needs to tighten up. He likes the ball coming on to the bat because, because of so much white-ball cricket, he is used to hitting on the rise."
He further said that "He wants that pace that is found in white-ball cricket. But in red-ball cricket, on wickets like these, probably in India when he plays, it is not easy to play on the rise. He just needs to understand that and improve his game for those conditions."
Jaffer said Jaiswal has made a great start to Test cricket, which many players will only dream of.
