Shubman Gill & Rachin Ravindra future legends? Ex-England captain feels so

Both Shubman Gill and Rachin Ravindra had a great 2023, with some solid performances coming, especially in ODIs.

Who will be the next superstar of world cricket? Any guesses? Well, former England skipper Nasser Hussain has picked two from the current generation who could go on to become modern-day legends, and that includes an Indian as well. In a video posted by the ICC, Hussain picked Shubman Gill and Rachin Ravindra to go on and achieve greatness.

“I am going with Shubman Gill. I think he had a very good three quarters, nine-tenths of 2023. He must have learned so much from having the likes of Rohit Sharma on the other end. Maybe that illness towards the end just got him a little bit and his form dipped. He is a super talent and he is going to be the next sensation for India for years to come. Hopefully, he will have a good 2024,” said Hussain.

Gill, barring his failure in Tests, played 47 matches this year, across formats, and scored 2126 runs, at an average of 48.31. That also included seven tons, as he will end the year as the highest run-maker.

As for the Kiwi all-rounder, Hussain said, “And the man who lit the World Cup up was Rachin Ravindra. Going into the World Cup, I had seen him in England a bit. He came in at the Lord’s down the order and smashed it around. I thought he could play. When he was given a chance at the top of the order, he was a revelation. Hopefully, he can continue his progression,” said Hussain.
