IND vs ENG 4th Test: Shubman Gill learning to adapt to the new role as India’s No.3 batter | Cricket News – Times of India

RANCHI: One of the more heartening aspects of this series for India is the way Shubman Gill is beginning to find his feet as the anointed No. 3. From his continuing struggles at that vital spot in the batting order, Gill is learning to find rare strength. This much is evident from his century in Vizag and the 91 in the previous Test in Rajkot. In a position previously dominated by giants with rock-solid technique and a freaky ability to absorb pressure, the talented but often-flashy Gill has — over the past year or so — come perilously close to being labelled a misfit. In a way, the management’s pat-on-the back approach to Gill’s voluntary decision to take up the spot vacated by Cheteshwar Pujara was India’s own ‘Bazball’ moment. The team sorely needed someone at that spot to take the g...
