In the just finished ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, Shubman Gill scored 354 runs.
Shubman Gill, an Indian opening batsman, has surprised the Indian team this season. In 2023, he had a significant career breakthrough. In addition to scoring a lot in every format of the game, he had an amazing time in India for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023. Gill finished the competition with four scores of fifty or more and 354 runs in nine games. He is now India’s top run scorer in the Twenty23 One-Day International (ODI) format, having amassed 1584 runs with five significant hundreds in 29 ODI matches.
In the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, Team India had an incredible journey, but it ended in disappointment when they lost to Australia in the major final at the Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium in Ahmedabad. After losing to Australia by six wickets in the final, India was once again robbed of the ICC crown. Even though squad India had a great year, Shubman Gill is a little let down by the way the squad performed in the major tournament. Gill played poorly in the championship game as well.
“Losing the World Cup lowers spirits,” Shubman Gill explains.
Shubman Gill is now focused on the upcoming T20 World Cup in the USA and the West Indies. “I think it’s been a great year for me, but having to miss the World Cup obviously dampened the mood a bit,” Gill said in an interview with CNBC TV18. “Fortunately, we have another World Cup coming up next year, so we are all looking forward to it.” Over the past ten years, India has lost five ICC finals across all formats and has finished empty-handed in ICC competitions.
In addition, Shubman Gill expressed his excitement for the major events that would take place in the future year. “I think this year is not over yet; we have the Test Series coming up in South Africa as well as the World Cup coming up in the next year,” he stated. “A very important Test series coming up in Australia.” The Test Series that I believe will take place in Australia and South Africa are the ones that I am most excited about.
