Rishabh Pant and Shubman Gill will be the youngsters to look out – Dominic Cork
The spotlight will once again be on the junior cricketers as they take up the England challenge in known conditions. Former England cricketer Dominik Cork picked two of the youngsters – Rishabh Pant and Shubman Gill to look forward to in the much-awaited series.
“We need to put two younger players into the Indian side. Shubman Gill, who Scott Styris has been banging the drum about Shubman Gill, but what a performance against Australia. He’s obviously a talented cricketer, so I am going to pick him,” Dominic Cork said.
Even though Rishabh Pant, I think he’s got a major force to play in this series, especially with that superb innings in the last Test match to win the series against Australia, but for me, I am just gonna go the way Scott Styris wants everybody to go, is Shubman Gill, because he is such a superb young player and England will find it tough to get him out,” Dominic Cork said on Star Sports’ show Cricket Connected.
Shubman Gill impressed one and all in his debut series playing the Australian quicks at ease. His knock of 91 runs in the fourth innings at the Gabba paved way for India’s historic win. Rishabh Pant also grabbed the headlines for his heroics with the bat for India as he played two attacking innings in the third and the fourth Test respectively.
