Owner Sunil Gavaskar gives Shubhman Gill a new nickname on live TV. Guess

Sunil Gavaskar’s admiration of Shubman Gill’s batting ability is well known to cricket fans. When Gill became the youngest male cricketer to score a double-hundredth ODI in the series opener against New Zealand in Hyderabad, nearly all the praise for Gill came from his legendary opener. India. Gavaskar has given the young cricketer a new nickname after India’s victory in the first international match at Raipur’s brand new stadium.

Regarding the ease with which the right-hander hit the ball at the top of the line, Gavaskar referred to the 23-year-old as “Smoothman Gill”. In a post-match interview with Shubman Gill on Star Sports, the former India captain said: “Smoothman Gill, I’ve given you a new nickname. I hope that’s not a problem.”

Gill replied, “I don’t mind, sir,” while grinning and feeling a bit embarrassed to hear such things from the legendary Little Master.

It is interesting to note that Gavaskar often uses the same nickname when commenting on Indian innings.

On Saturday, India had another commanding performance, with Gill playing the supporting role rather than the lead.

The eight-stroke victory for India was accomplished by speedballers Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Shardul Thakur and Hardik Pandya. Rohit Sharma’s half-century and Shubman Gill’s 40 undefeated games are up to the task. India leads 2-0 leadership in a series of three matches with victory.
