Here’s what Shubman Gill has to say when asked about missing MS Dhoni




Shubman Gill

Shubman Gill had an animated reply to a question asked about MS Dhoni. When asked if he and the Indian team miss the star batter, Gill claimed in a low voice that everyone in the team and fact in entire India misses the former Indian skipper. He felt that no matter where India plays, the former Indian wicketkeeper batter will be missed genuinely. 

“The entire India misses Mahi bhai (MS Dhoni). It does not matter where we play, in Ranchi or anywhere in the world,” said Gill when asked about the CSK skipper. Gill was in the press conference ahead of the fourth Test between India and England. The youngster was asked a lot of questions about his form and the confidence he gained in the last two Tests. 

Gill has been in good form in the ongoing series. The right-handed batter has adapted well to the number 3 position after failing to perform in the first Test. In the 2nd Test, the star batter scored 35 runs in the first innings and a much-required hundred in the second innings. At Vizag, Gill helped India to claim a crucial win against England to level the series 1-1. 

Shubman Gill hopes to make the most of his form

When India went to Rajkot for the third Test, Gill did not have the greatest of starts as he was dismissed for a golden duck in the 1st innings. However, the Indian batter proved the critics wrong by scoring 91 runs in the 2nd innings. A big gorilla has been off Gill’s back. The youngster has been away from the criticism after his knock in the last two Tests against England. 

He would be hoping to continue the form in the fourth Test which is set to take place in Ranchi. The city is the birthplace of Dhoni, the former Indian cricketer, who was instrumental in India winning the T20 WC 2007, the ODI WC 2011, and the Champions Trophy 2013 as a skipper. Gill will be in action against Dhoni later this year as the skipper of GT in the IPL 2024.

Is Shreyas Iyer really injured? Latest report has something else to say!




Shreyas Iyer

The latest report on Shreyas Iyer has shocked the fans to the core. The star batter was deemed unfit to play the last three Tests against England as he was declared injured after the 2nd Test in Vizag. The star batter reportedly had a groin injury and stiff back as per the statement of the Indian Cricket Board. He was hence released from the Indian squad. 

As per the protocols, the star batter was sent back to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru to recover soon. However, the latest report has claimed that the NCA did not report any injury from the right-handed batter. It is being claimed that the physios and other officials in the NCA have deemed Iyer to be as fit as ever. 

The news has raised a lot of doubts amongst the followers of the Indian team. Iyer has been going through a rough patch with the bat in the longest format of the game for months now. He last hit a hundred in 2022 and has not been able to score even a fifty in a long time. While that is a matter of concern, the fans are worried about something else. 

Has the Indian management faked Shreyas Iyer’s injury?

After the latest report, the fans are wondering if the Indian management deliberately declared him injured to get him replaced by someone else in the squad. At this point, the fans are claiming that the Indian Cricket Board does not have the confidence to declare their players to be dropped. Even in the past, India declared players injured to the doubts of the fans. 

It is worth wondering if Iyer is actually injured. As per many reports, he was dropped from the team. It is claimed that he was not declared ‘Dropped’ to not be criticized by the fans of the batter. While nothing has been official yet, if what reports claim is to be believed, it might be a serious dent in the confidence of Iyer, who needs the backing of the management in tough times.
