Shubman Gill! Remember the name. This 18-year-old, a rising star in Indian cricket, does not shy away from challenges and the pressure of constant media scrutiny, a by-product of cricketing success in India.
Shubman’s performance in the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2018 was top-notch and the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) fans loved it a lot when the franchise bagged the cricketer for IPL 2018 during mega-auctions.
Now, Shubman has a very sweet message for all the fans of the side. Ahead of the eleventh edition season of the tournament, the young lad said he is very happy to join the two-time title holders. Thanking the fans for their support during Under-19 World Cup, Gill vowed to give them reasons to celebrate in the upcoming season of IPL.
