Remember, Shubman Gill is the highest scorer of the current year, 2023. He is in sublime form and scored almost in every tournament he played in the past two years. The youngest player in cricket history to score a double hundred. All these achievements make him a different prospect altogether.

He also added, “I think Shubman is in such form that it would be silly of me to overlook him. He is a great player and has a fantastic technique. He is playing at home in India, yes, there will be pressure but he is my pick.”

According to the legend player AB de Villiers, the simple technique and changing gear according to the situation will make a difficult prospect for the bowlers in the upcoming ODI ICC World Cup in October and November. 

“His style and technique are quite simple and basic, as you would generally say for some of the best players of the world. You get some exceptions, like Steve Smith. Shubman Gill is much more traditional, has a very straightforward technique, and doesn’t try a lot of different things. He can change the gears and put a lot of pressure on the bowlers.

Here is the Indian 15-member final squad for the ICC World Cup 2023:

 Rohit Sharma (c), Hardik Pandya (vc), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Axar Patel, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav.
