Indian batsman, Shubman Gill said that he would prefer playing in the World Test Championship over the World T20 Final if given an option to choose between the two.
Punjab: Kolkata Knight Riders and Indian striker Shubman Gill have said they would rather pay for the First Test Championship Final than before the T20 World Cup. He was speaking in an interview with ESPNcricinfo. Gill said, “playing in the World Test Championship final is a bigger dream than playing the T20 World Cup final because the WTC happened for the first time.”
Shubman Gill plays for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the IPL and rose to prominence after the 2018 U-19 Cricket World Cup. Hitting on no. 3 Gill scored 418 runs with a score of 104.5. Later, he made his Test Test against Australia in December 2020. He had a good series down below. Though he hasn’t gotten any of a century, he has managed to impress voters with his few good performances.
