India summon another rising batting star to New Zealand for ODI series

Mohammad Yousuf reckons that even the current Pakistan team could have beaten Australia in a Test series

Shubman Gill, the 2018 U-19 World Cup hero, earned his maiden India call while all-rounder Vijay Shankar was recalled to replace the suspended duo of K.L. Rahul and Hardik Pandya.

"I think I have become mentally stronger now and I have full confidence that I can finish close matches".

He scored 62 in the washed out first-class match against New Zealand A in Whangarei, then 37 and 25 opening the batting as India A swept the one-day series 3-0 at Mount Maunganui.

"I woke my father up to tell him".

"It was great to see him come and bat at number five". The middle-order batsman from Tamil Nadu, who also bowls medium pace, has played five T20I for India till now. "The 87 I scored in a chase of 300 plus against New Zealand A gave me a lot belief that I also belong to this level".

Dhoni's 95-ball 53 included just four boundaries and many Indian fans felt he batted too slowly, allowing Australia to take control of the game.

On Friday, DeSantis denied any political motivation, saying Israel's removal was about accountability and keeping children safe. However, during Israel's time at the helm, Broward County saw a yearly drop in violent crime, burglary and robbery.

He played the role of the finisher, amassing 188 runs in three games at an average of 94. Also, young Gill has been in prolific form with the bat in the ongoing Ranji Trophy and this call-up is definitely one of for the future as he has already impressed nearly everyone who has seen him playing.

"If I get a hundred I want to make sure that we win the game as well".

Talking to Sportskeeda in an exclusive chat about his call-up, Shubman said, "I was about to sleep at night and I suddenly got a storm of messages on WhatsApp from my friends and reporters".

Recently, he forced his way into the Indian team with some sensational performances for Punjab in the Ranji Trophy as he scored a stroke-filled 268 against Tamil Nadu, nearly led Punjab to an unlikely win on day 4 of their game against Hyderabad, an unbeaten 69 against Kerala and a 91 against Bengal.

The sudden selection and the cloud of uncertainty hovering over Pandya for his transgressions has suddenly brought Shankar into the mix but he is unfazed about it. You can't play freely if you start thinking like that.
