Shubman Gill picks the best batting partner between Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli
Shubman Gill is currently busy with the Kolkata Knight Riders in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League. He is yet to free his arms this season as he could score 69 runs at a poor batting average of 17.25, with his best score of 47. Well, such statistics are not at all expected from a player of his reputation.
The 21-year-old youngster has impressed the Indian cricket fans with exemplary batting performance in his debut Test match against Australia at the fortress The Gabba. The young prospect scored a pivotal 91 at the top of the order and helped India lay a rock-solid foundation.
Had it not been for his impressive knock as an opener, it could have been a totally different story altogether during India's record run-chase of 328 at The Gabba. His knock helped Rishabh Pant find the comfort zone and he helped India secure a win over Australia. Thus India retained the Border Gavaskar Trophy by winning the series by 2-1.
Shubman Gill picks the best batting partner between Tendulkar and Kohli
Meanwhile, the youngster was asked to name the best batting partner between legendary Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli. Without any pause, Gill picked Sachin Tendulkar. Tagged as 'God of Cricket', Sachin has inspired countless cricketers and fans all across the world with his style of batting.
Sachin is known for playing elegant shots all around the park. He is the only cricketer in the world who has scored 100 centuries in the international circuit. On the other hand, Indian captain Virat Kohli is the current best player in the world. The way he has remained consistent for a long time has been admirable.
