Worrying about seeing matches affected by rain and closed roof is a good option: Shubman Gul

,

India’s young opener Shibman Gill believes that rain-affected matches are a nuisance for both the players and the paying public, and hence, having a roof-top cricket stadium would not be a bad option.

In the six-match white-ball series in New Zealand, two matches (the first T20I in Wellington and Sunday’s ODI) were abandoned and one game (the Napier T20I) was decided by the Duckworth-Louis method. Gill, who scored 50 in the first game and looked in good touch during his unbeaten 45 here, said it was frustrating at times.

“It’s a decision (to play in an indoor stadium) to be taken by the board. As a player and a fan, it’s annoying to go in and out and see so many matches affected by rain. But I don’t know if I How can I take a stand for this as it is a big decision.

“Obviously closed (competitive) rooftops (stadiums) will be good,” Young told mediapersons after being bowled for just 12.5 overs after completing the second ODI.

The problem with the rain-affected games is the planning of the innings as the 50 overs were reduced to 29 overs after a four-hour delay.

“It was very frustrating. You don’t know how many overs there are so you can’t plan your innings,” said Gayle, who hit a purple patch in 50-over cricket.

You won’t see 400 plus scores in every other match.

While there are calls to change India’s ODI batting format, the Punjab youngster doesn’t think 400 or 450 runs per innings will be the order of the day in the near future.

“Totals like 400 to 450 will happen in one or two games a year. More or less, it will be targets in the 300-plus range, which is more likely. It also depends on the conditions you are batting in — first. Batting or chasing. But a 400-plus score in every match is not an achievable target,” he said.

The World Cup is far ahead.

Gill is a strong contender for a place in the 15-man squad for next year’s ODI World Cup but said he is not looking that far ahead.

“I’m not looking that far ahead and my goal is to make the most of the opportunities I get. That’s what I’m trying to do and make the most of the opportunities I get, the team. Trying to score big runs for,” he said.

Focus on the ball instead of the outside noise.

It is a consensus opinion that in the post-Virat Kohli-Rohit Sharma era, it will be Gull, who will be the flag bearer of Indian batting. But, just as criticism doesn’t affect him, so much praise can’t distract him.

“Other people’s opinions, good or bad, never affect my game when I’m out there batting in the middle. Once you’re batting, the focus is not on what people say but It depends on how to bowl and how to score it,” said the eloquent youngster.
