Shubman Gill has the potential to surpass both of my records: Brian Lara
Brian Lara believes Shubman Gill has the capability to surpass his Test record of 400* and his first-class cricket record of 501*. The cricket legend also praised Gill’s batting style.
Lara recently said to Anandbazar Patrika:
“If Gill plays County cricket then he can break my 501*. In Test cricket, he can surely go past 400. Cricket has changed a lot, especially batting.”
”Batters play t20 leagues across the globe. IPL has changed everything. The scoring rate has gone up. So you will keep seeing big scores. Shubman will score big, mark my words.”
“The way he bats is superb. I have immense belief in him. Have you seen how he charges down the track to hit the seamers down the ground? Unbelievable.”
Shubman Gill, who achieved the third-fastest double century in ODIs, has accumulated 3541 runs in 73 matches with nine centuries and 18 half-centuries.
