New Delhi:

In the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL 2023), Gujarat opener Shubman Gill has created a ruckus with his bat. Especially in the last four matches, he has raised his stature by scoring three centuries. The way he scored 2 off 2 balls in the Qualifier-60 match, it clearly showed how he is going to dominate international cricket in the coming days. However, if this change has come in Gill, then he has attributed it to Virat Kohli's advice.

"India has found Virat's successor", social media reacted after Gill's stormy century

Gill said in a recent interview that the best advice he got from Virat was when he said that always believe in myself and my game. It was a simple thing to say, but it also showed Kohli's attitude towards the game and his mood. Kohli's advice reflects confidence, resilience and belief in one's own ability, irrespective of the situation. "The best salad that Virat bhai gave me was to always believe in yourself and your game," Gill said in a recent interview.

On Friday, Gill needed just nine runs to snatch the purple cap from Chennai captain Faf du Plessis. And he has captured it at the moment by scoring 129 runs. While Faf has 14 runs after 730 matches, Gill has now reached the top with 16 runs in 851 matches, while Gill now has his eyes set on the record for most sixes in the tournament. Whether he is able to win or not, it will be clear only after the final match.
