Shubman Gill Addresses His Century
"I went to the washroom and did not know I would be wearing this [on the Orange cap]. Got a good total, hopefully, we will defend this. A lot, of sweat went into my eyes and I was not able to open them. We have played our best cricket when we have lost and this is one of those days," said Gill after the first innings.
"Definitely it plays a part, you have to know which side to target, if it's bigger boundaries and they bowl in good areas, look for doubles, smaller boundaries look to take it on. The new ball held up a bit, there was not much grass on that wicket, the ball was coming on nicely and with the outfield wet it stopped swinging after 2 overs. I wish this was possible - I will carry it everywhere," he added.
