Former India captain Anil Kumble highlighted a significant aspect of young batsman Shubman Gill’s technique following his early dismissal in the ongoing 1st Test against England in Hyderabad. Gill, who resumed his innings from an overnight score of 14, was caught by England debutant Tom Hartley for 23.

Hartley claimed his maiden Test wicket as Gill’s attempt to attack him resulted in a catch for Ben Duckett at mid-wicket. Kumble, speaking during the lunch break on Day 2, emphasized the need for Gill to improve his ability to rotate strikes, especially when facing spinners.

Kumble drew attention to the exemplary techniques of Cheteshwar Pujara and Rahul Dravid, who consistently batted at no. 3 throughout their careers. He urged Gill to adopt a strategy of playing with soft hands, particularly when dealing with spin bowling.

Anil Kumble’s View on Shubman Gill’s Batting .

“Un par dabaav badhta gaya aur vo strike rotate nahi kar paaye (The pressure kept on growing and he couldn’t rotate strike. He will have to learn this. If he wants to bat at no. 3, especially on Indian tracks where spinners will cause trouble, he will have to rotate strikes. Even when he came out to bat yesterday, he took his time as you don’t want to lose your wicket.

He got stuck today as well. Wanted to play the release shot against the turn, which i don’t think was the ideal shot. If he has to slot in that no. 3 role like Pujara or Dravid, he will have to rotate strike. He needs to play spin with soft hands and use his wrist. This is something he needs to add to his game,” anil Kumble said on Sports 18.

Returning to the ongoing match, KL Rahul’s composed fifty served as the linchpin as India reached 222 for three at lunch, narrowing the deficit. Despite a more formidable effort from England’s spinners on Day 2, India managed to make substantial progress.

KL Rahul, unbeaten at 55, and Shreyas Iyer, holding strong at 34, are currently at the crease. India, resuming from their overnight score of 119 for one, now trail England by a mere 24 runs. England had been bowled out for 246 in their first innings on Day 1.

Rahul exhibited impeccable timing, showcasing the confidence gained from his recent century against South Africa earlier this month in Centurion. The partnership between Rahul and Iyer has been crucial in India’s pursuit to close the gap against England’s total.
