In the ongoing IPL 2023, Gujarat Titans’ opener Shubman Gill has been in scintillating form. The 23-year-old batsman has been setting the stage on fire, amassing a staggering 576 runs in 13 matches at an impressive strike rate of 146.19. With this remarkable performance, Gill has secured the second position in the IPL Orange Cap race, showcasing his immense talent and consistency.

Gill’s recent century against Sunrisers Hyderabad has drawn widespread praise from former cricketers, including Robin Uthappa, who lauded the young prodigy for his exceptional display of skills. Uthappa even went on to compare Gill to the likes of cricketing legends Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar, emphasizing his potential for greatness. According to Uthappa, Gill possesses all the qualities to become a phenomenal player and an integral part of Indian cricket’s future.

Speaking to India Today, Uthappa expressed his confidence in Gill’s abilities, stating, “I definitely see him having the potential of becoming someone as big as Virat Kohli or Sachin Tendulkar. I certainly think he has got the stuff. He is a phenomenal player who is in exceptional form and is playing some exceptional cricket at the moment.” Uthappa also highlighted another rising star, Yashasvi Jaiswal, as someone destined for greatness in Indian cricket.

High praise for Yashasvi Jaiswal as well

Jaiswal, representing the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL, has been having a breakthrough season, accumulating an impressive tally of 575 runs in 13 matches. His consistent performances have caught the attention of experts and pundits alike, with many tipping him to earn a place in the national team soon. Jaiswal’s earlier exploits in domestic cricket, including an impressive showing in the Ranji Trophy, further solidify the belief in his potential.

While Gill’s Gujarat Titans have already secured a spot in the IPL playoffs, Rajasthan Royals find themselves in a tight spot. To keep their playoff hopes alive, they must win their final league game against Punjab Kings and closely monitor their net run rate, which could ultimately determine their fate in the tournament.

As Gill and Jaiswal continue to dazzle with their skills and consistency, their performances in the IPL 2023 further solidify their status as the next big stars of Indian cricket. With their exceptional form and immense potential, fans eagerly await their future contributions to the national team.
