I want to play less dot balls, I want to keep ticking: Shubman Gill on his T20 approach

As talented as Shubman Gill is, he still hasn't found his footing at the international stage. The dashing right-handed batter has played well in bits and pieces for India, but is yet to get that breakthrough, especially in the shortest format of the game.

Now ahead of the 1st T20I between New Zealand and India, Gill spoke to the official broadcaster and talked about his approach in the T20 format.

What did Gill say?

"I came here (New Zealand) for the Under-19 World Cup. Made my ODI debut here (2019), so it's always good to comeback in NZ. I have fond memories of coming back to New Zealand. I have been able to execute a few things and have been practising a lot (on his success in SMAT 2022). 

I have always felt hitting sixes is not about power, it's about timing. If I am getting that right, I know I can hit sixes. It's always about me looking to score, rather than focusing on fours and sixes. I want to play less dot balls, I want to keep ticking one's and two's."

India are all set to play against New Zealand in the 3-match T20I series and Gill would hope that he gets an opportunity to make his T20I debut.
