Kirsten, who was speaking from firsthand experience, said bluntly of Shubman Gill’s GT captaincy, “It’s not like Test cricket.”


Following a commanding victory over the Mumbai Indians last week, Shubman Gill captained the IPL team for the first time in his career. In their rematch, Gill’s team—captained by former Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya—beat the defending champion Chennai Super Kings by a pitiful six runs.

Like last season’s Orange Cap champion Gill, he made a modest debut against MI (31 runs) and CSK (8 runs). After winning two of their last three games, the Titans will be seeking to move up the standings when they play the formidable Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday. Their current ranking is sixth.

Gill’s early years as the team’s captain were discussed by Titans head coach Gary Kirsten prior to the exciting game. Kirsten says Gill is getting better at making tactical decisions in a fast-moving game like Twenty20.

You can finish the game quickly. Your plan is the foundation for every choice you make. During the Saturday pre-game press conference, Kirsten said that it happens faster than Test cricket.

Before GT’s Sunday morning match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Kirsten told the reporters, “I’ve been really impressed with the way he’s conducted himself as a leader.” observed that once Hardik Pandya transferred to MI, Gill adjusted to the position of GT captain really well.

I think he’s adapted to being a captain really well. He has demonstrated that he possesses some really good leadership abilities. He is a knowledgeable individual. Considering his lack of experience as a captain, his understanding of Twenty20 cricket is particularly restricted. He will therefore pick up new skills at work.
