IND vs ZIM: Shubman Gill hits fifty, yet why fans are angry with Indian captain?

Shubman Gill, who is captaining Team India for the first time, did not have a good start to the series and was unable to make any significant impact in both the matches. Gill was also under pressure in such a situation but the Indian captain made a comeback in the third match and breathed a sigh of relief by scoring the first half-century of the series. However, fans were upset with it.

Shubman Gill, who was captaining Team India on the tour of Zimbabwe, finally lost his bat. Hoping to cement his place in the T20 squad, Shubman Gill's first two matches did not go well and he failed to score big. In the third match, Gill's bat was certainly at its best and the Indian captain scored a huge half-century. Now, after scoring a half-century, Gill has to be praised, as he too played an important role in the win, but for some reason, many fans have also been upset.

Gill's innings of 66 runs off 49 balls

In the third match of the T20 series played between India and Zimbabwe in Harare, Shubman Gill played an innings of 66 runs off 49 balls. Opener Gill along with his old opening partner Yashshwi Jaiswal gave the team a quick start and put on a partnership of 67 runs. After this he also added 72 runs for the third wicket along with Gaikwad.

Scored a half century in 36 balls

Shubman Gill hit 7 fours and 3 huge sixes in his innings. He completed his half century in 36 balls. The innings was special for Gill as he scored a half-century for Team India after almost a year in this format. Earlier on August 12, Gill played an innings of 77 runs against the West Indies in Florida. After this, he failed in the next 6 innings and questions began to arise over him. This was the reason why he joined the T20 World Cup only as a reserve player.

Why were fans upset with Gill?

Now Gill's innings was good but still why fans didn't like it? There are many reasons for this. The first reason is that when Yashwi Jaiswal returned to the team, the decision to open him was correct, but Gill himself came to open with him, while Abhishek Sharma himself came to open in the last match and scored runs in 47 balls. Played a quick innings of 100 runs. Abhishek came in at number three and managed to score only 10 runs.

Gill could not bat fast

Another reason Gill could not bat fast even after playing a long innings. Gill completed his half-century in 36 balls and still failed to build momentum. Gill scored just 15 off the next 13 balls. In contrast, Rituraj Gaekwad, who came at number four, scored a quick 49 runs in just 28 balls, on the basis of which the team could reach this score. That is, Gill made the mistake of first removing Abhishek from the opener, who could have given a quick start, and then came into the opener and did not work himself properly.
