‘You can’t think that I will make fifty first…’, Virender Sehwag raging on Shubman Gill’s slow innings

Virender Sehwag on Shubman Gill: In the match held on Thursday (April 13) in IPL, Gujarat Titans registered a victory over Punjab Kings with just one ball remaining. Chasing an easy target of 154 runs, the Gujarat Titans batsmen batted slowly despite having the wicket in hand and as a result, the team needed four runs to win in the last two balls. Here Rahul Tewatia gave victory to Gujarat by scoring a four, but the slow innings of Gujarat batsmen could also be the reason for the team’s defeat. After the match, former cricketer Virender Sehwag told Shubman Gill the biggest mistake in this matter.

Virender Sehwag said in a conversation with Cricbuzz, ‘Shubman scored 67 off 49 balls but when did he complete Fifty? He probably scored a half-century off 41-42 balls. That is, he scored 17 runs in the last 7-8 balls. He started making fast runs when he turned fifty. If he had missed Fifty in such a situation, Gujarat would have been chasing 17 runs instead of 7 in the last over. You can’t think that I will make Fifty first and we will win the match no matter what.

Sehwag said, ‘This is cricket. The moment you start thinking about your own performance instead of the team, then you get a big slap from cricket. You can’t think like this. If he had batted like he did after Fifty, before Fifty, he could have saved a few more balls for the team.

Gujarat won by 6 wickets
In this match, Punjab Kings had scored a mere 153/8 while batting first. In response, Gujarat Titans started fast but then as the pitch slowed down, Gujarat’s innings also slowed down. Here not only Shubman scored at a slow pace, but the strike rate of Sai Sudarshan (19), Hardik Pandya (8) and David Miller (17) was also less than 100. In such a situation, it took 19.5 overs for the Gujarat team to chase this target.
