<strong>Port of Spain (Trinidad):</strong> Young India opener Shubman Gill feels that the spin duo of Axar Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal, along with part-time option in Deepak Hooda, will have a huge role to play in the second innings of the ongoing first ODI against the West Indies at Queens Park Oval. Gill, back to playing the 50-over format after more than 16 months, reached his maiden ODI fifty, hitting a sparkling 64 off 53 deliveries, laced with six fours and two sixes. He also shared a 119-run opening stand with captain Shikhar Dhawan (97 off 99 balls) before being run out by a direct throw from Nicholas Pooran. <p></p> <p></p>In the 18th over, Gill tapped the ball towards mid-wicket and instantly ran for a quick single. He accelerated at the start of his run but went a little casual in the middle and eventually, fell short of the crease at the non-striker's end by Pooran's fabulous throw. <p></p> <p></p>"It was a good wicket; it was a great experience overall. Obviously disappointed to get run out but it's been a good experience. We are excited to play here in this beautiful stadium," said Gill in a mid-innings chat with broadcasters. <p></p> <p></p>From 213/1 in 33 overs, India looked good to hit the 370-380 mark. But West Indies fought back in the latter half of the innings, as the going got tough for India. <p></p> <p></p>With the spinners getting some grip off the pitch, later on, Gill felt that Chahal, Patel and possibly Hooda will play a big role in defence of 308. <p></p> <p></p>"We are happy with anything over 300. We have to bowl tight lines. It's a good wicket, the ball started to grip and hold a bit after 20-25 overs for the spinners. So they will have a big role to play (in the second innings)."
