Two excellent, stylish batsmen performing today. Gaikwad and Gill are both so easy on the eyes, so personable, they make cricket so much fun.

Looking at his form, confidence, growing stature and the general context of his season so far… this could be Shubman Gill’s IPL.
Nice start too! #IPL2023 #GTvCSK

I know there is a match that needs to be decided here but I am thinking right now Ruturaj NS Shubman is opening the batting for India soon.
