Shubman Gill came into the equation in the late-night talks. "Then I saw that I have been selected with Vijay Shankar for the Indian team", he told ESPNcricinfo on Sunday. The Tamil Nadu-based cricketer was the highest run-getter for India A in the tour of New Zealand, scoring 188 runs in the three ODI matches.
His first act was to go to the next room, where his parents were sleeping. Yuvraj Singh, his Punjab team-mate, had said last week, "He (Gill) is a special talent".
"He is a young guy whose batting I like to watch". He is very exciting. "After the 2019 World Cup, he can make it to the [Indian] side". "I think batting at No 5 also suited my game as I was able to close two games and remain unbeaten", said Shankar, who has so far played five T20Is for India. Plus he has recent experience of touring New Zealand. "For that, I will have to make good every opportunity that is given to me", he said. "I also played the Under-19 World Cup there past year". But what I can do now is contribute to my team's success and win matches going forward.
"I am really excited to share the dressing room with Virat. I am just looking to enjoy everything now", explains Vijay.
The 19-year-old has been in red-hot form in the last one year. At first, we all would feel enamoured by him but he made us comfortable and whenever we faced a issue in our batting, he would listen to us and also point out if something is not right. He batted really well, a century in your very first innings, that too in worldwide cricket... "You can't play freely if you start thinking like that".
India's star in the making Shubman Gill harbours a dream to be the part of the team's World Cup squad.

"It is a big advantage (to be picked for the New Zealand tour)". "I am not thinking about the World Cup at all to be honest". They finished 324 for 8 in 57 overs. Furthermore, he has simply been outstanding in the ongoing Ranji Trophy, representing Punjab, where he has notched a mammoth 728 runs in five matches at a very big average of 104 and a jaw-dropping strike-rate of 78.61.
That fact may also have to do with the new dimension to his game that he added during the season with Kolkata Knight Riders.
"You are just watching and observing how they move as I said I am a little from the black side (influenced by West Indies culture) so I have to see how they (women) move first", he said. The messages started pouring in and I rushed to tell my father.
Gill knew his time would come, something he had expressed after a fruitful campaign in the Deodhar Trophy in October, shortly after Shaw's sensational Test debut. He attributes his adaptability to a childhood spent playing with older kids who often used their seniority to bat ahead of him.
Talking about the call-up, Gill said, "It was a surprise call-up for me. Then I can imagine".
