Robin had made headlines after being bought for a whopping Rs 3.6 crore in the IPL 2024 auction. After the Gujarat Titans bought him, the cricketer, who hails from Jharkhand, became the first tribal cricketer to get an IPL contract.

Later, it was revealed that Robin’s father, Mr. Francis Xavier Minz, works as a security guard at Ranchi’s airport. As Indian cricketers make their way back to their homes for a short break ahead of the fifth Test in Dharamsala, Gill decides to meet the inspirational man.

Honoured to meet Robin Minz’s father. Your journey and hardwork has been inspiring. Looking forward to see you in the IPL,” Shubman Gill wrote on his Instagram story while posting an image with Robin’s father.
