Shubman Gill loses GOLDEN opportunity in KL Rahul’s absence


India Tour of England: India vs Leicestershire Live Updates – In the absence of opening batter KL Rahul, who is currently nursing an injury, Shubman Gill has a fantastic opportunity to nail his place as India’s first-choice opening partner of skipper Rohit Sharma in Test cricket. However, the youngster failed in his first Test, as he could not impress in the ongoing four-day warm-up game against Leicestershire. Follow India Tour of England, India vs Leicestershire live updates with InsideSport.IN.Also Read: India Squad England Series: Full-strength squad to face England in white-ball series, squad announcement next week: Follow Live UpdatesNotably, ahead of the Test match at Edgbaston against England, which will commence on 1st July, India is playing a four-day warm-up game against county side Leicestershire.

The lad from Punjab initially looked in good touch, smacking two boundaries off Jasprit Bumrah’s bowling and as many against Will Davis. However, the latter had the last laugh as he got his wicket in the second delivery of the 10th over.

Shubman Gill could score only 21 runs

Davis pitched the ball outside off-stump, which Gill could have left but instead tried to offer a shot. However, he could not get the desired connection and ended up edging the ball straight into the gloves of Indian wicketkeeper-batter, Rishabh Pant, who is playing for Leicestershire in this match. Overall, Gill scored 21 runs from 25 deliveries.

Meanwhile, it is not only him who had a poor day with the bat, as almost every Indian batter failed to stand up to Leicestershire’s attack. At the time of writing, India were struggling at 86/5, with Virat Kohli and Kona Srikar Bharat on the crease.
