Talking about Gill, former India skipper Kapil Dev lavished praise on the young batter and stated that he has been following the footsteps of greats like Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman, Virender Sehwag and Virat Kohli,
“Sunil Gavaskar came, Sachin Tendulkar came, then Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman, Virender Sehwag, Virat Kohli and now with the kind of batting he is showing, it appears that Shubman Gill is following their footsteps. But I would like to give him another season (before making big claims). He definitely has the talent and ability but he needs more maturity,” Kapil said on ABP News.
“If he plays another season like this, there is no doubt that he too could be included in the list of great players. But I would not like to take him to that league currently. Maybe he needs to give one more year. It’s too too early (to say).
