Shubman Gill is in excellent form in IPL-2023. (IPL photo)
New Delhi: Shubman Gill. The player who is being called the next star of Indian cricket. Why not go anywhere. From December-2022, this batsman is scoring runs fiercely. After international cricket, Gill is also showing his mettle in IPL-2023. His team and current winner Gujarat Titans are in the race to defend the title and have reached the playoffs. Shubman Gill’s bat has contributed in bringing him here. But now the time of crisis is about to come in front of Gill.
Gujarat made it to Qualifier-1 by being at number one in the points table. The four-time winner Chennai Super Kings was at number two. Both these teams will be face to face in Qualifier-1 and this match will be played at Chepauk Stadium in Chennai. This is Gill’s problem – this ground and this team.

Failed in front of Chennai
Gill’s figures are not good at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Gill has played a total of four IPL matches at this ground. But in these four matches, nothing special has come out of his bat. In these four matches, Gill has scored only 78 runs in this stadium. During this, his average has been 19.50. Gill has not scored a single half-century in these four matches and his highest score is 33 runs.
On the other hand, if Gill’s figures are seen against Chennai Super Kings, then they are also not going to impress much. Gill has been playing IPL since 2018. Before Gujarat he was in Kolkata. Since then, Gill has played a total of 11 matches against Chennai Super Kings, in which he has faced 200 balls, but scored only 259 runs. His average has been 25.90. He has scored three half-centuries against this team, one of which came in Gujarat’s last match against Chennai.

Gujarat will have tension
Gill’s figures against Chennai are not very special and this can be a matter of concern for Gujarat. Gill is one of the main batsmen of the team. Gill has played 14 matches this season and has scored 680 runs so far. During this, four half-centuries and two centuries have come out of his bat. But will Gill be able to repeat this form against Chennai? This will be a matter to be seen.
