After playing an unbeaten 0-run innings in the IPL match against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Saturday, young Kolkata Knight Riders batsman Shubhaman Gill said he had practiced good power hits in the last one or two years, which gave him full advantage. The 21-year-old Gill became the ‘Match Player of the Match’ with an unbeaten 70 off 622 balls with five fours and two sixes.
Gill said after the match that field shots were easier to play because the ball did not spin too much. “I’ve practiced hitting well for the last two years,” Gill said of his injuries. I think it was important for us to win. We bowled well and the bowlers had to do well with the bat to take the success forward. ”

“We didn’t talk for long and we were just trying to focus on what the bowler wanted to do,” Gill said of a 92-run fourth-wicket unbeaten partnership with England’s Eoin Morgan. Huh. As an opener, I have a responsibility to lead the team to victory. “

Morgan, who hit three boundaries and two sixes in an unbeaten 42 off 29 balls, said: “It’s good to win. It’s a long tournament, but the win will give us rhythm and confidence.” “Because of the winning bowlers, he praised Gill’s innings. To be honest, I didn’t tell him much. It’s nice to see his batting. He’s very talented and has an appetite for learning and I want to bat with him again. He deserves this success.”
