Shubman Gill gave his jersey to Zimbabwe pacer Brad Evans after the third ODI in Harare. Evans in the Post-Match Press Conference stated that Gill is the master of stealing singles. Evans further called himself a Shubman Gill fan, highlighting his heroics in the 2020-21 Australia Test Series and the IPL. Gill played a 91-run knock in the second innings of historic Gabba Test and, scored 483 runs at 132 Strike Rate in IPL 2022.

Evans said: “Yeah, for sure (Shubman Gill was one of the factors in deciding the series) Going into the series, I was one of his biggest fans, that’s why I got his shirt, and now I’m playing against him. He is a world-class player. Even from the first game, you could just tell… For example, when he gets a single, he hits it hard exactly where he intends to. That’s a skill, and it comes after years of practice. I just sometimes watch him in awe ‘this guy is so good.’ That’s a reason I’m a fan. I watched him on TV in the IPL and in Australia when they won that Test series. That’s a reason I’m a fan. To play against him was awesome.”

Evans added: “I was just walking back (after that match). I just gave him (Shubman Gill) my shirt. He took his shirt off and gave it to me. It was quite quick. I had actually asked him in the morning if we could change shirts, and he agreed. He’s a nice guy.”
