Hope we go forward and qualify for the playoffs. It was a bold statement. It was a plan to get the net run-rate going. Iyer was batting well in the practice games as well, and to make a debut and perform so well, it was very pleasing to watch. It felt good, except the way I got out, but I’ll get to my fifty next matches,” Shubman Gill told host broadcaster Star Sports after the game ended.
