Gill worked on himself
Shubman Gill is scoring runs at a strike rate of 156 in this IPL. Last season his strike rate was 132 and before that it was 119. He did not have a single IPL century before this season. Then how come there was such a change in Gill’s performance. After winning the Man of the Match award, 23-year-old Gill said, ‘From the last West Indies tour, I think I started changing gears. I got injured before the last IPL but I kept working on my game. I have worked on some areas and made technical changes before the New Zealand series after the T20 World Cup.
