ICC WTC should be a 3 match affair, India at a slight disadvantage said, Yuvraj Singh

ICC World Cup 2023: Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh backed young batter Shubman Gill to be the best player of this generation. He said that the young batter has the potential to achieve great heights and can do wonders in the coming years. 

Ever since Shubman Gill has made his debut for India, he has set the world cricket on fire ever since he debuted for India. He has asserted his authority in all three formats of the game and has become India’s mainstay in all three formats of the game even at such a young age. 

Especially with the ICC World Cup 2023 around the corner, Shubman Gill will be one of the most important players for India. With the way he has batted in ODIs, this is something that has been enthralling. He has been in the red hot form and is the leading run-getter in the ODIs this year.

Shubman Gill has smashed 5 centuries in the format this year and with the kind of platform he has given to the team in every game will be crucial for India going into the ICC World Cup 2023.

Shubman Gill was the leading run-getter in the Asia Cup 2023 and was one of the main reasons why his side won the title. It’s fair to say that if he bats like the way he’s doing, India will be one of the hot candidates to win the ICC World Cup 2023. 

Speaking to the Week, Yuvraj Singh said: “Shubman Gill has the potential to become the best player of this generation”.

With ICC World Cup 2023 around the corner, former South African cricketer AB de Villiers has picked his leading run-getter for the tournament. The Proteas legend backed young Indian batter Shubman Gill to set the stage on fire in the mega event of the cricket. 

AB de Villiers said that Shubman Gill despite being young already looks like an experienced campaigner. He also talked about his technique and explained: 

“He is still young, which is incredible because he looks like an experienced campaigner allready. We are going to heard a lot about him in the future and in this world cup as I think he is going to be the top run scorer.

“Shubman Gill is much more traditional, very straight forward technique. He doesn’t try a lot of different things. He does have a lot of strength where he can change the gears and put a lot of pressure on the bowlers.” 

ICC World Cup 2023 will begin from 5th October. India will open their campaign against Australia on 8th October.
