“This is not Ahmedabad”: Fans troll Shubman Gill for his early exit in the Boxing Day Test against South Africa

Shubman Gill faced severe criticism after his early exit in the first innings of the IND vs SA 1st Test on December 26. As Team India’s No. 3, Gill had the responsibility to stabilize the innings after skipper Rohit Sharma’s early departure with just five runs on the board.

Sadly, the promising young batsman did not live up to expectations and was dismissed after scoring just two runs off 12 deliveries. Debutant pacer Nandre Burger claimed Gill as his second Test wicket when a delivery down the leg side brushed Gill’s glove, leading to a catch behind the stumps.

Despite the on-field umpire initially ruling it not out, the hosts opted for a review, resulting in an overturned decision. Gill’s struggles in the ongoing South Africa tour continued with this dismissal marking his third consecutive failure. Before this Test, he had recorded scores of 0 and eight in the T20I series against the Proteas.

The casual manner in which Gill got out became a subject of online trolling, reflecting the disappointment of fans over his performance in the crucial No. 3 position for Team India.
