Team India handed Shubman Gill another opportunity in the warm up game with the young Indian opener turning out for Leicestershire on Day 4. Gill took the opportunity with both hands and smashed a fine half-century against the likes of Jasprit Bumrah and Shardul Thakur against the moving ball.

The young opener took his time early before getting into his groove, dominating the first session. As time passed, Gill became more confident and played some glorious drives to reach his half-century.

Gill’s half-century comes at a time when India could be dealing with a potential crisis following Rohit Sharma’s COVID-19 test. Sharma is forced into quarantine until June 29, two days ahead of the IND vs ENG 5th Test match.

To make matters worse, India do not have a backup opener after the team management opted against bringing a replacement for KL Rahul. Gill’s half-century hence comes as a sigh of relief to the team and Rahul Dravid will hope that the youngster can carry there form into the Edgbaston Test.
