With the reopening of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) chief mentor David Hassei praised Shubuman Gil and Niti Shrana at the team’s exhibit. KKR’s opening duo is crucial to the franchise’s ambitions at this year’s UAE. Hussey said the duo can “shock the world” on the display. In a pre-season interview, Hassei told kkr.in. They are trying to shock the world that they are the next generation of Indian players. “
“It’s not just one or two series. They’ve been there for 10 years, and if they work, look for us at IPL,” he added.
Gil wasn’t at his best in the first half of the season, scoring only 132 runs in seven games, scoring a high score of 43. Despite the irregular form at IPL2021, he has become a regular flagship of the Indian test team. He appeared in the first XI during the final defeat of the Indian World Test Championship (WTC) to New Zealand.
The 22-year-old had to withdraw from the England tour as the stress reaction on his left thigh, which he suffered in the WTC final, progressed.
Meanwhile, Lana is currently KKR’s highest scorer of the season, scoring 201 points in seven games. He also registered a high score of 80.
The 27-year-old boy was recently named to the T20I and ODI teams in India on a Sri Lanka tour captained by Sikar Dawan. He starred in ODI and two T20Is.
Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians (MI) will resume this season’s UAE leg in Dubai on September 19th. Meanwhile, KKR will resume the campaign on September 20th to face the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at Shake Zayed Stadium.
