Who is Shubman Gill?
Shubman Gill made his debut for the India U-19 team last year in July. He had a bright tournament as he slammed a century in the final against Sri Lanka, and went on to score 227 runs in six innings at an average of 38.63, with a high score of 101 not out. There were rumours that India’s Under-19 star Shubman Gill is dating his teammate Sara Tendulkar.
Later in September, the 18-year-old played for the India U-19 team in five-match One-Day International series in England. He played a massive role in India’s convincing win in the five-match ODI series against England U-19. Gill played a crucial role in India’s win in the fourth ODI by scoring a century.
Gill ended up scoring 275 runs in five matches.
Words of Appreciation – Shubman Gill -Sara Tendulkar
Now, the question is whether Rahul Dravid and Ravi Shastri, who are also Rahul’s father and mentor respectively, have given him any advice on how to deal with the nerves while playing for India.
Most of the cricketers take advice from their father and Rahul too should have done the same. Also, it’s highly unlikely that Rahul has given him any advice about how to deal with the pressure.
“Whatever advice he has for me, I am waiting for that moment. I have read in a few newspapers that he has given me a couple of tips. But for now, all I can do is wait for him to call me up on phone, or for a call from his camp, and for him to tell me what advice he has given me. I am waiting for that moment and when I get that call I will go and practise what he has told me,” Gill said at the post-match press conference.
He added: “For now, I just want to enjoy myself and get in good form. I don’t think about all that and keep my head down, play my natural game and get into a good rhythm.”
Newborn Shubman Gill’s reaction when he got the call from Rahul Dravid. Brought tears to my eyes. This kid’s the real deal. Gill also explained that he kept looking at his parents in the dressing room, during the game. Gill’s father said that the entire team was very proud of his son and he could not stop crying after the performance.
Shubman Gill And Sara Tendulkar
Team India opener Gautam Gambhir quit Ranji Trophy to focus on the national T20I and ODI cricket and it looks like another senior opener from the Indian cricket team is ready to take his place. There were rumours that India’s Under-19 star Shubman Gill is dating his teammate Sara Tendulkar. He had revealed to a journalist last year that he was dating Sara. However, there was no confirmation from either of the couples and the rumour mill still raged on with the latest addition being Sara’s response on Twitter.
Sara Tendulkar Tuesday tweeted her support to Shubman Gill. Shubman Gill scores a century. Sara Tendulkar comes to Twitter & expresses her support to Shubman Gill. “Shubman Gill scores a century. Sara Tendulkar comes to Twitter & expresses her support to Shubman Gill. This is genius in itself! #HallaBol #RanjiTrophy18,” she posted.
Gill scored a century in his Ranji Trophy debut for Punjab against Himachal Pradesh on Tuesday, making him the first player since 1981 to score a century in his first match in the Ranji Trophy.
The knock helped Punjab beat Himachal by an innings and 11 runs in their Ranji Trophy Group B fixture at Khandheri in Himachal Pradesh.
The 17-year-old cricketer, who belongs to a middle-class family in Amritsar, has been kept in the shadow of regular captain Prithvi Shaw at the Under-19 level but he has a knack for big hundreds having scored four tons in the last five matches.
Gill was also part of the India Under-19 team that won the World Cup in New Zealand earlier this year.
He is a domestic heavyweight having scored 10,400 runs in 104 first-class games and 2,450 runs in 25 List A games. He also has 635 runs to his credit in the upcoming T20 league, IPL.
Sara Tendulkar has been a prolific run-getter for Mumbai in domestic cricket and also in the women’s league circuit. She was recently named in the Maharashtra squad for the 2018-19 women’s T20 league.
On Tuesday, however, the Mumbai batswoman returned home from the tournament early.
“After an unfortunate turn of events in the Maharashtra Women’s T20 League, I have decided to return to Mumbai. It is a long season and I want to take care of my body. It is in the best interest of the team and also the fans of the Mumbai Ranji team,” she wrote on Twitter.

Sara Tendulkar has recently been spotted walking hand-in-hand with Shubman Gill at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta. The rumour mill went into overdrive and it was revealed by a leading daily that the two are dating. The reports suggested that the 25-year-old Tendulkar is happy with Shubman’s rise to stardom and is keen on keeping it a private affair. However, when news of the duo dating first broke out, Shubman took to Twitter to slam the reports calling it ‘fake news.
“All these reports about Sara and me are false! Sara is happily dating Ajinkya Rahane. She’s been away for a few months with her family, therefore, doesn’t meet me often. But whenever she comes to Mumbai, we meet up,” Gill wrote.
