After a thunderous win over New Zealand King Kohli came all out to praise the newbies. In the series, Kohli has been given rest while Rohit Sharma is leading the team and this is the time when the Indian team will be giving chances to all the aspiring young guns.
Among the new breed of cricketers, Shubhman Gill is someone who has managed to impress everyone. The 19-year-old cricketer is receiving praises from all quarters for his exceptional batting style.
Kohli praised the man in the post-match ceremony and said: "I think there are some outstanding talents. We saw Prithvi Shaw grab the opportunity with both hands. Shubman is a very exciting talent and I saw him bat in the nets and I was like wow I was not even 10 per cent of that when I was 19, So, that's the confidence that they carry and it's great for Indian cricket, the standard keeps going up and the guys coming in can make those impact performances straightaway. And, we are more than happy to give them chances and provide them the space to grow."
Shubman Gill has also proven himself in first-class cricket. He scored a great set of 1089 runs from nine matches including a gigantic 268 against Tamil Nadu. Gill has replaced KL Rahul in the New Zealand series who along with Hardik Pandya, was suspended after the Koffee With Karan controversy. The ban is lifted now but the team decided not to change the order and go with the decided players.
