MI vs KKR in IPL 2021: After a forgetful run in IPL 2021 first phase, Gill had returned to form by slamming 48 runs off just 34 balls in the previous match against RCB which comprised six and 6 fours. The knock took the game completely away from the hands of Virat Kohli & Co. It was crucial innings from the youngster as he was coming on the back of a shin injury he had sustained in England.

The right-handed batsman silenced all the critiques who questioned his form after the WTC Final following which he was dropped from the England tour because of his injury.

In the seven matches of IPL 2021 in India, Gill had smashed 132 runs. His 48 run knock against RCB that was instrumental in handing KKR a convincing win came as a confidence booster for the young player.

Shubman Gill had started on his redemption journey that also sent a warning to the oppositions when Shubman Gill smashed a brilliant fifty during KKR’s intra-squad practice match.
