India is touring New Zealand for an 3 match ODI and 3 match T20I series with a seemingly young squad. All-rounder Hardik Pandya is all set to lead the team during the T20Is, whereas, Shikhar Dhawan will be the captain for the ODI series.
Young gun, Shubman Gill will most likely make his T20I debut after being named in the squad. Mohammad Kaif, former Indian cricketer believes that Gill will be the centre of attention in the series, stating that he is in "class form".
What Kaif said
"He is has been in class form over the last 5-6 months. He played a crucial role in Gujarat Titans' IPL triumph. He has scored a lot of runs, and averages between 50-60 in first-class cricket. During this tour, all the eyes will be on Shubman Gill. He only played in ODIs earlier but the selectors did the right thing to call him to the T20I side."
Debuting in 2019, Gill has a phenomenal record in international cricket so far. In ODIs, Gill has played 12 matches and scored 579 runs.
