Cheeky Shubman Gill, on his sledging moment with James Anderson, says, "Keep that chat private"

On Friday, Shubman Gill enthralled the audience in Dharamsala with a solid knock in the fifth and final Test against England. The No. 3 Indian batter scored 110 off 150 balls to notch his fourth Test ton in 46 innings. He hit 12 fours and five sixes to reach the mark. One of his sixes was against James Anderson, which was an overhead shot. On the second ball of the 34th over, Shubman danced down the ground to hoick Anderson for a straight six. The two stars indulged in banter after that.
Talking about the shot, Gill said, "I thought the ball wasn't doing much at that time, and just instinctively, I wanted to go over the top and put some pressure on him. That's why I played that shot."
After this, Gill was asked, "What was the chat after you hit him running down the track?"
To this, he replied, "I think it would be better for both of us to keep that chat private.”
On Friday, in the fifth Test match at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamshala, Shubman Gill completed 4000 international runs during his 110-run knock against England. Gill made his India debut in the ODI format against New Zealand in 2019. Following that, he has appeared in 44 50-over matches and scored 2271 runs at a strike rate of 103.46.
