Watch: Shubman Gill's brainfade moment costs him his wicket to Scott Boland

Shubman Gill scored 13 off 15 deliveries before getting bowled by Scott Boland.

India are under pressure against Australia in the World test championship final at The Oval. Australian bowlers have given the early blows to Team India and sent back both Indian openers early. Australian pacer Scott Boland was once again on the money and picked up Shubman Gill on just 13 runs. Gill was batting with positive intent but had a brain fade moment against Scott Boland, soon after Pat Cummins trapped captain Rohit Sharma in front. Australian pace bowlers had an outstanding start and took control of the game with early wickets. Australian captain Pat Cummins expected Scott Boland to be their key weapon against the starting Indian batting line-up. 

Gill’s brain fade moment

Scott Boland was deceiving Indian batters with his pace and movement. Boland in his second over bowled a straighter one around the off stump to Shubman Gill. Gill had a little brain fade moment and offered no shot thinking the ball would move away and go to Alex Carey who was standing behind the wicket. But it nipped back in a little and went crashing Gill’s off stump. Boland was at his usual best of targeting the three blocks of wood behind the batsman. He is known for bowling in that line to trouble batters. Gill was back in the dressing room at 13 right after captain Rohit Sharma’s (15) wicket. 

India are in trouble against Australia’s big score of 469 runs. With centuries from Travis Head (163) and Steve Smith (121), they have put 469 on the board. Nathan Lyon will be a key along with Scott Boland and Mitchell Starc against the Indian middle order. Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli are currently in the crease. They have a big task on their hands. Gill had a huge expectation on his shoulder after his superb Indian Premier League performance for Gujarat Titans.
