David Hussey: "Shubman Gill will be one of the highest-scoring individuals"

Kolkata's Kub Riders' Shubman Gill was criticized after a match against Rajashtan Royals in which he did not have a great night. Gill failed to score a large number of points, but it seems that David Hussey does not doubt him, who believes that Gill will return to his form and that the class is still permanent.

"One thing I do know is that he took the Test match arena by storm in Australia," Hussey said, as quoted by cricbuzz "The way he works on his game in the nets, he's very specific. He's got a great work ethic and I reckon all I can say is probably form will come and go, but class is always permanent."

"He is one class individual off the field but also an exceptionally talented player on the field. Mark my words he'll be one of the highest-scoring individuals by the end of the tournament. He's an absolute class act."


KKR played very badly and nothing went their way. Rahul Tripathi was great at times, but even that was not enough for anything more. "Really, we just needed to get a partnership going at that stage when Andre was ready to come in next," he said.

"Dre is probably at his scintillating best when he has maybe three or four overs to go and he can hit 30 or 40 runs off about 15 balls and yeah, in a perfect world, he can go at No. 3 and make 200 I guess, but wasn't tonight."

"Yeah, maybe look at all strategies when it comes to the batting going forward with the Kings to play in a couple of days' time, and yeah, everything's on the table." Lockie Ferguson is on the bench and still waiting for his chance.

However, it is not easy for any coach to put together a team without everyone being satisfied, so it takes time to see where the biggest problem is and which players could contribute to a better game. Now it remains for them to increase their focus and try to correct all the bad things so far.

It is obvious that the team lacks self-confidence which they will have to regain as soon as possible. "Lockie is a class act and an excellent bowler for New Zealand. He particularly played well for Kolkata last year. He's handy in the death, but he'll also push the selection over the remaining games."

"Think everyone is on the table in terms of selection and we've got some tough decisions to make. We've going to start winning some games and I think everything will be discussed."
