Virat Kohli lauded Shubman Gill’s potential ahead of the ICC WTC final against Australia.

The World Test Championship final against Australia will feature two Indian batsmen who will undoubtedly draw close attention: Virat Kohli and Shubman Gill. Kohli, an exceptional performer for India for over a decade, has consistently displayed his prowess and skill in the cricketing arena. On the other hand, Gill, a promising young talent, has showcased tremendous potential, positioning himself as one of the future stars of the game. With the crucial match on the horizon, Kohli recently shared his insights on Gill’s immense capabilities and the impact he can have in the near future.

“He (Gill) speaks to me a lot about the game, is very keen to learn and has an amazing skill set at his age,” Kohli tols the ICC.

“He has got an amazing ability and a temperament to perform at the highest level and is confident and we do have that relationship and we do have that understanding based upon respect.”

“I am keen to help him grow and really understand his potential and come into his own so that he can play for a long time and perform consistently and India cricket gets benefited,” Kohli said.

Kohli and Gill: King and Prince of Indian Cricket

Kohli has been hailed as the ‘King’ by numerous social media users, appreciating his remarkable dominance and extraordinary skills in the realm of cricket. Likewise, Gill has been endearingly embraced as the ‘Prince’ by many on social media, acknowledging his talent and promising future in the sport.

“These tags of king and prince and all of that kind of thing are great for the public and spectators to see, but I think the job of any senior player is to help improve the youngsters and give them the insight you have had throughout your career,” Kohli said.

“As long as a guy is keen to learn like him he is going to be fine as he wants to learn how to do this for a long time at the highest level and perform consistently.”

“He is a lovely kid and he is playing amazingly well and I wish he continues the same in this Test match.”
