Shubman Gill vs R Ashwin in Test: Shubman Gill has not been able to perform as expected in Test cricket so far. Gill looked a complete flop in the first match of the two-match Test series being played against South Africa. The Indian opener had scored 02 runs in the first innings and 26 runs in the second innings. Amidst Gill’s poor Test statistics, if we tell you that the spin all-rounder’s batting statistics are better than Ashwin, then perhaps you will not believe it, but it is really so.
Gill has batted in 35 innings of Test matches so far in his career. But R Ashwin, famous for his bowling, had scored more runs than Gill in the first 35 innings of the Test. So far in his career, Gill has scored 994 runs in 35 innings of 19 matches at an average of 31.06. But at the same time, Ashwin had scored 1006 runs in the first 35 innings of the Test. That means, after 35 innings, bowling all-rounder Ashwin had scored 12 runs from opener batsman Shubhman Gill.
Gill did not prove himself worthy in test cricket
The way Gill has made a name for himself by performing brilliantly in ODI cricket, in the same way he has not been able to live up to his standards in Test cricket. Gill’s bat has remained silent so far in the Test. Gill has scored only two centuries in Tests so far, one of which has come outside India, which he scored on Bangladesh soil. That means Gill has not scored any century while playing Test in Army countries.
Overall, Gill’s test career has been like this till now
Gill made his Test debut against Australia in 2020, since then he has played 19 red ball matches. In 35 innings of these matches, he has scored 994 runs at an average of 31.06. During this period, he has scored 2 centuries and 4 half-centuries, in which his high score has been 128 runs.
