Father Reminisced Shubman Gill’s Desire for Runs After Test Series

In the year 2014, Lakwinder Singh Gill watched the way his son Shubman played the entire day against Amritsar in a Punjab Inter-District U-16 Markhan Trophy at the MCA ground in Mohali. During the match, Gills scored 351 runs. In partnership with the opening batsman Nirmal Singh, he made a record. He then got out with just 4 balls remaining in the day. The father of Shubman is really proud of his son. He had encouraged his son with some motivational words.

The senior Gill remembered the day that took place 5 years back on Thursday. After Shubman got an opportunity to enter the Indian Test Squad for the first time, the senior Gill said the encouraging words. His father said, 'As a kid, he loved batting and it was the only rash shot he played that day. He faced 272 balls for that knock and hit 49 boundaries. He has got the hunger for runs and to see him bat in Indian Test team colors will be a dream for him and the whole family.'

During 14 years of age, Gull had scored 1018 runs at 92.54 from a total of 7 matches in Punjab's winning campaign in the U-16 Vijay Merchant Trophy that took place in the 2014-15 season. In that match, he made a century in each innings against Bengal in the sem-final. His next century was against Madhya Pradesh in the final at Cuttack. 

Gill then won BCCI's best U16 cricketer award for the second year before scoring 500 runs in 2015-16 Cooch Behar trophy. As an opener, Gill scored several runs. He scored massive 263 runs Tamil Nadu at Patiala in the Cooch Behar Trophy. In the previous year, Gill scored 365 runs during India A tour to England. This week, Gill scored 90 runs for India A against South Africa.

In recent times, Gill turned out to become the youngest Indian cricketer to score a double century in first-class cricket by scoring 204 against West Indies A. Before the West Indies tour, Gill practiced with wet Tennis balls at the PCA Stadium, Mohali.
