IND vs NEP: Shubman Gill has played his last Asia Cup match, and will sit on the bench against Nepal!
IND vs NEP: Asia Cup 2023 has finally started after 8-9 months of intense clashes with the Pakistan Cricket Board and BCCI. The Indian team faced their arch-rivals Pakistan yesterday. However, the second inning of the match was washed out due to rain. Team India is going to face Nepal at Pallekele stadium in Kandy city of Sri Lanka tomorrow. This match is an important match for the Indian team, but when it comes to the experience of both teams, the Indian team is 100 times ahead. However, India’s match against Nepal must be won as the result of the match against Pakistan was not the result yesterday.
Shubman Gill out-of-form:
However, a big update has already come out. Shubman Gill is set to be dropped from the squad tomorrow against Nepal (IND vs NEP), while the young Indian opener is out of rhythm. His performance in the match against Pakistan was very poor. Even against Naseem Shah in the powerplay, he was afraid to bat consistently. He has become the highest run-scorer in IPL 2023. However, it has had a huge impact on his performance outside the country. The Indian opener did not perform very well in all three formats even against a small team like the West Indies. According to many creek experts, Gill is performing on flat wickets but Gill is of no use if the wicket is challenging to bowl.
Ishan Kishan and Hardik have shown great form:
But on the other hand, Ishan Kishan played well against Pakistan yesterday. Talking about the match yesterday, Hardik Pandya scored a 90-ball 87 for the team in difficult conditions and was joined by the in-form Ishan Kishan. Ishan’s 81-ball 82 came off the bat. In the powerplay, three batsmen returned to the pavilion very quickly, leaving a shadow of worry on the Indian team’s head. However, when Hardik and Ishan were dismissed, the Indian team scored 266 runs in 48.5 overs. Kishan and Pandya put on a crucial 138-run stand despite being under pressure from 66/4.
And after Ishan’s brutal innings, it is becoming very difficult for Gill to stay in the team. In fact, captain Rohit Sharma would like to open with Ishan and the rest Gill. In such a situation, Surya Kumar Yadav will want to bat at number four and Shreyas Iyer (Shreyas Iyer) at number 5. Iyer looked in a lot of rhythm yesterday but lost his wicket with a shot-pitched ball yesterday. However, after returning to the team after a long time, he will get another chance for the team. Shubman Gill will have to leave the team.
