India are through to the final of the World Test Championship where they will face Australia in the summit clash at The Oval staring June 7 but it wasn't before a nerve-racking moment transpired in the 1st Test between New Zealand and Sri Lanka in Christchurch.
Despite being in the form of his life, Shubman Gill is heavily tipped to make way for KL Rahul, who is the designated opener of the Indian team in the longest format. India will meet Australia in the 1st Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023 on Thursday.
The Shubman Gill-Virat Kohli connection is not new. It was under Kohli that Gill made his India debut back in 2019 during an ODI against New Zealand and it was Virat who interviewed Shubman after the 23-year-old hammered a breathtaking 208 last month in Hyderabad.
