Shubman Gill stood tall against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the run chase and helped KKR win their first match of IPL 2020. The 21-year-old looked at complete ease and anchored the innings brilliantly. Gill scored an unbeaten 70 and took his side home along with Eoin Morgan.
Interestingly post the win against SRH, Gill posted a photo on Instagram on which Abhishek Sharma left a facetious comment. The SRH player sarcastically told Gill that he was lucky in the match and got saved against him during his bowling spell.
