KKR opener Shubman Gill played a good hand in his team’s victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Eliminator on Monday in Sharjah. He scored a fluent 29 off 18 balls and along with Venkatesh Iyer gave the team a good start in the powerplay. He is inching closer to 400 runs in the season having stacked up 381 already in 15 games. Over 250 runs have come from his bat in the UAE leg.
After the game, Shubman Gill spoke about facing Delhi Capitals in the Eliminator and KKR having an edge over their opponents due to the conditions in Sharjah.
“They (DC) are a really balanced team, as we see it, and hopefully, we will give another cracker of a game. This was our third match here, and coming again here, we know what to expect from this wicket, and I think right now everyone is adjusted to how the pitch plays and the conditions. We are acclimatised to the conditions here, and I think we would have an edge against the Delhi Capitals,” said Gill to Ian Bishop.

Big Win For Us: Shubman Gill
KKR won six out of eight games in the UAE lag after winning just two from seven in India. Gill spoke about Kolkata’s winning run and the fact that no one gave them a chance coming into the second leg of the tournament.
“Big win for us (against RCB). When we were coming into the second leg, not many gave us a chance of qualifying and getting to the playoffs. But obviously, the way everyone has played is tremendous, and hopefully, we will carry on the good form”
Talking about his own form, Gill highlighted on his consistent run in the second leg of the tournament. He had a forgetful first leg but has struck two back to back fifties in the second half of the season.
“I didn’t have the best first leg in India, but I knew that I was batting well and (it was) just a matter of spending time in the middle, that was the conversation with the coach that just spend some time in the middle,” said Shubman Gill, who has four 30+ scores in the UAE from eight outings.
