WTC Final: Australia Great Identifies 'Little Things' Making Shubman Gill 'Vulnerable'


     Shubman Gill, one of the top players on the Indian cricket team for the World Test Championship final, will be closely followed. The brisk opener has had a fantastic year so far. Gill has demonstrated that he is the upcoming star in international cricket, whether it be in Tests, ODIs, T20Is, or even the recently finished IPL. As the WTC final approaches, the 23-year-old is expected to do well. India will play Pat Cummins' Australia this time for a chance to break their ten-year ICC title drought. However, Australia great and former India coach Greg Chappell has identified a few areas that could cause Gill problems before the final.

What he said

     "I have glimpsed him in passing. He was in Australia when I saw him. The one thing that India has done well, possibly better than any other team in international cricket, is to give their young players plenty of opportunities to play the game. They have made sure to play a lot of international cricket. Shubman has therefore played a lot of cricket," according to Gregg Chappell, who was interviewed on 'Backstage With Boria'.

     "He has previously visited England. If the Australians bowl well, he will struggle in English conditions just like anyone else. The bowlers with added pace, like Mitchell Starc, are the ones who will cause him the greatest trouble. The increased speed weeds out talented players. The additional bounce also draws out talented players, and if Hazlewood is well enough to play, I believe he might pose a challenge for Shubman. Boland, another bowler who can trouble anyone, will probably play in Hazlewood's absence. He bowls in a straight line. In English weather, he can bowl a pretty excellent length," Gregg said. 


     "I won't go into too much detail, but I'm sure the Australians have witnessed a few of the same things that I have. Shubman makes a few small mistakes early in his innings that leave him open to lengths around the off stump, and if the ball bounces a little bit higher, I believe he will be vulnerable to nicks off behind the wicket. The Australians will focus their attention on that area. He does, however, play quite well. He will chastise them if they don't bowl well," Gregg said. This is the second World Test Championship final for India. India lost to New Zealand in the 2021 championship game.
