Shubman Gill Player Profile

A right-handed top-order batsman from Punjab, Shubman Gill is known for his penchant for big runs and was therefore drafted into the India U-19 squad for the 2018 World Cup as vice-captain. He made his first-class debut with a half-century for Punjab in the Ranji Trophy in late 2017 and an attacking 129 in the next match.

A constant feature of Rahul Dravid's plans for the U-19 World Cup, Gill has consistently played above his age-group level. In 2014, he scored 351 runs in the Punjab Inter-District U-16 Tournament and shared a record opening stand of 587 runs with Nirmal Singh. On his U-16 state debut for Punjab, he scored an unbeaten double century in the Vijay Merchant Trophy. Later that year, he went on to share the stage with his idol Virat Kohli while receiving the BCCI Award for Best Junior Cricketer, which he won two years in a row: 2013–14 and 2014–15.

After being selected for the national under-19 team, he was adjudged Man of the Series during the Youth ODI series at home against England, scoring 351 runs in four innings. On the reciprocal tour, his first in English conditions, he once again top-scored with 278 runs in four innings. India swept both the series. On the day of the 2018 IPL auction while he was still in New Zealand for the World Cup, Gill was picked up by Kolkata Knight Riders for Rs 1.8 crore (approx. USD 281,000).
