Confident Youngster of Team India Shubman Gill claims he is not making any batting changes

Shubman Gill, the star youngster, is the India Cricket Team’s number-three Test batsman. However, he is the designated opener in ODIs and T20Is. But in the test setup, Yashasvi Jaiswal is now the opener, while Gill moves down to number 3. Gill failed to score runs in a flurry. But now, after hammering a ton, he has claimed that he hasn’t made any changes in his technical approach while batting in his new position.
Shubman Gill hammered a ton in the Vizag Test to save his place in the team. Though he was dismissed for a duck in the first innings of the Rajkot Test, he went on to score big runs in the second innings. He narrowly missed out on a century after being dismissed at 91.
“I have played at No. 3 for India A and in Ranji in the past. Wasn’t something new. I didn’t make any technical changes. As an opener, you set the tone and don’t get time to think, but in middle-order, it’s more about playing as per situation,” said Shubman Gill at the pre-match press conference.
Owing to some injuries and players missing, India has given chances to quite a few newcomers to the team. Owing to workload management, Jasprit Bumrah has been rested for the IND vs. ENG Ranchi Test. In his absence, Mohammed Siraj will spearhead the pace attack.
