In a recent interaction with PTI, legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar offered his opinion on whether Shubman Gill can excel in South African conditions. Sachin says Gill has the edge as he has played in similar conditions before. He say:
“When it comes to engineering, different surfaces test you differently. I think Shubman has the edge because he played very important innings (91) in Brisbane where we won the Test. ”

“Shubman started well and showed a lot of promise. The way he builds his innings, he’s been good so far. It’s just that he needs to go further and turn those 40s into big scores.”
