Give Shubman Gill time rather than putting too much pressure – Gautam Gambhir

Gautam Gambhir while speaking on Game Plan said Shubman Gill has had a honeymoon start to his international career after making his Test debut in Australia and finishing the series with a series win is a monumental start for the youngster from Punjab.

“Yes, you have had a honeymoon start to your international career – it can’t be better than this. Playing in Australia, winning the series with a young side – you have done really well,” Gambhir said on the Star Sports show ‘GamePlan.’ 

Gautam Gambhir further added how Shubman Gill should not be pressurized and shall give his own time to develop his game at the international level. Forcing plenty of expectations on him will end up pressurizing him leading to a downfall in his performance.

“You have batted beautifully, no doubt about it, but let’s give him time as well and let him develop on his own rather than putting too much of pressure and too many expectations on him.”
