In the World Test Championship final between India and Australia, young opening batter Shubman Gill was held without a hit.
In the recently concluded WTC Final, Young opening batter Shubman Gill failed to leave his mark against the Pat Cummins-led team.
Gill was able to score only 13 and 18 runs in each of his two innings, leaving Team India facing a 209-run defeat.
The 23-year-old batter, on the other hand, is currently having a good time in London after recently meeting and congratulating the players of football team Manchester City on their Triple Crown victory.
On Saturday, Man City defeated Inter Milan 1-0 to win the Champions League for the first time. They had already won the Premier League and the FA Cup to complete their treble.

Despite having to rely on luck because Inter Milan missed several opportunities in the second half, Rodri’s goal in the 68th minute was enough for City to finally win the biggest trophy in club football.
After his prior victories with Barcelona in 2009 and 2011, their manager Pep Guardiola has now won the trophy three times as a coach.
Speaking of Gill, the opener paid a steep price following the conclusion of the ICC World Test Championship match against Australia.
Gill received an additional 15% fine on his match fee for his dissent at the third umpire’s decision that resulted in his dismissal in the second innings.
While the entire Indian team received a 100% penalty for maintaining a slow over-rate in the championship game.
The effective fine for the young opening batter would be 115 percent as a result.
Social media was awash with criticism of the third umpire for siding with the bowling team in Gill’s contentious catch in the second innings of the match against Australia.
Through his social media accounts, the young opener also insulted the third umpire. As a result, Gill received an additional fine from the International Cricket Council.
