Gill’s meteoric rise:
After scoring heavily for Punjab in age-group cricket, Gill broke into India Under-19 side and has not looked back since then. In the Under-19 World Cup last year, he slammed 372 runs at an average of 124 and bagged the Man of the Tournament award. The performance helped him bag a lucrative IPL deal as Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) bought him for INR 1.8 crore. In the IPL, he scored 203 runs including a match-winning fifty against eventual winners Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
Some impressive performance for India A then further enhanced his reputation. Earlier this year, Gill was given a surprise call for the ODI series in New Zealand after his stunning outing in the ongoing season of the Ranji Trophy. In just 5 games, he scored 729 runs at an average of over 104. However, the youngster failed to grab his chances, scoring just 9 and 7.
