‘Not worried about slow strike rate’

Shubman may not be included in the Indian ODI and T20 team yet due to his slow strike rate, but it is not a matter of concern for him. The Kolkata Knight Riders star batsman said in an interview to PTI-language before IPL 2021, “I think the strike rate is overstated in a way.”

‘Batting required according to circumstances’

He said, ‘How you mold yourself in a situation is important. If the team expects you to play at a strike rate of 200, then you should be able to do so. If the team demands you to play at a strike rate of 100 then you should be able to do so. It is just a matter of adapting to the circumstances of the match.

‘Fix batting style is not right’

Gill said, “There should not be a definite ‘pattern’ in your game that you can play only one way and do not adjust according to different circumstances.” After a brilliant Test debut in Australia, he could not do so well in the home series against England and could only make a fifty in 7 innings.
