Former Indian cricket team head coach Gary Kirsten has named a player who should play for the Indian cricket team right now. His comments came after India’s 0-3 series defeat against South Africa. And, he believes youngster Shubman Gill can play for India now.

While talking to Star Sports, Gary Kirsten, who has joined the Ahmedabad IPL team as a mentor, praised Gill’s talent. He felt that Shubman Gill should play for India. Meanwhile, Team India did not perform well in the batting department against South Africa and lost the ODI series by 3-0.

“Gill is a fantastic player who, at the end of the day, in my view, should be playing for India. He’s on the verge of that and plays with great flair and instinct for the game. He can be a match-winner on his own,” he said.

Kirsten again shared: “From a batting perspective, I am looking forward to working with him and helping him give the best out of an IPL season. We’re playing in the best competition in the world, just to make sure that it’s something important for us as a franchise and that the players come in and realise that it is an honour to be part of this franchise and performing for this team.”

We’ve kept doing the same mistakes- KL Rahul

Meanwhile, after Team India’s defeat to South Africa, KL Rahul said: “Can’t fault the boys for the passion and effort. In terms of skill and understanding the situation – sometimes we’ve gone wrong. But it happens – we’ve got some new guys in the team. In the one-day series at times we’ve kept doing the same mistakes. It’s early in our journey to the World Cup. We can go back, have some hard conversations. Have had a great time in SA. Have been looked after really well. We’ve shown a lot of fight.”
