DNA Hindi: Profile of Shubman Gill- Indian batsman Shubman Gill is very talented. There has rarely been any doubt about that in his journey from youth cricket to the senior team, but on Wednesday he took his talent to another level. In the first match of the ODI series against New Zealand, Gill brought dozens of records together by hitting a double century in Deccan, Hyderabad. Perhaps another player will break this record in the future, but Gill’s feat in this innings will hardly be forgotten by anyone. This feat was duping six one after the other. Especially after the way Gill hit three back-to-back sixes to complete his double century, hardly anyone would be surprised if his name became the ‘Sixer King’. Have you seen Shubman Gill’s international career stats? If you haven’t seen it, watch it now. Shubman Gill has scored 57% of the runs in his ODI cricket career by hitting boundaries, meaning he prefers to hit four or six rather than run away with a run or two. Did you know that Gill’s power to propel the ball past the boundary after being hit by the bat at bullet speed also has a ‘wrestler connection’? If you don’t know, no problem, we’ll explain.

Now you know the fighter connection of Gill’s four and six
Shubman Gill’s family is a resident of Fazilka area in Punjab. Gill was born on September 8, 1999. Gill might have started playing ball and bat at a young age, but his father Didar Singh wanted him to become a wrestler. In fact, Didar Singh himself was a good fighter and an even more vigorous Kabaddi player. He was considered the best player in the Fazilka area. Didar Singh’s dream was to make Shubman Gill’s father Lakhwinder Singh a fighter. Lakhwinder Singh used to work hard for it but in an accident his thigh bone was broken. Due to this, Lakhwinder Singh had to leave wrestling in the middle. After that, Baba Didar Singh wanted to make Shubman a wrestler, so while Shubman was playing cricket since childhood, Didar Singh used to make him do wrestler exercises. Because of this, Shubman’s hands and shoulders have the same strength as the batsmen and when the timing of his batting matches that strength, whoever the bowler is, the ball is visible through the boundary.

The father made bowls for the workers in the field
Shubman’s father Lakhwinder said in an interview that since childhood, he had only attachment to bat ball instead of other toys. Even at night he slept hugging the bat ball. Seeing his attachment, the net was installed to practice at home. He used to bowl to his workers at Shubman in the fields, where there was no restriction on playing the shot. Because of this habit, Shubman does not hesitate to play big shots.

The family moved into a rented house for Shubman’s cricket
According to Lakhwinder, Shubman’s cricket needed excellent practice, which was not possible at Fazilka. That’s why he left Fazilka and came to live in a rented house in Mohali with the whole family to give him good practice. Here he rented a house near the IS Bindra International Stadium and started Shubman’s practice at an academy. After that, Shubman continued to create history.
