Kolkata, August 19
Kolkata Knight Riders head coach Brendon McCullum desires to present some “leadership” position to proficient teen Shubman Gill, whose batting decrease down the order copped a lot criticism final season. Basically a top-order batsman, the 20-year-old Gill performed some strong knocks for KKR final season however he didn’t click on when he was requested to bat down the order.
“What a talent… he (Gill) is going to be a part of our leadership group this year as well, at least in some capacity. Even though he is young, I am a big believer that it’s not necessarily true that you having played for a long time makes you a good leader,” McCullum stated. “It’s about you exhibiting the behaviours of a leader. It’s always good to have a cross-section of leadership within your group. To us, Shubman is one of those guys we would look to lean on for some leadership throughout this season,” stated the previous New Zealand captain. — PTI
