Gujarat Titans Coach's Honest Verdict On Shubman Gill As Captain In IPL 2024 | Cricket News

Gujarat Titans may have made a chaotic start to IPL 2024 but their mentor Gary Kirsten backed Shubman Gill and said the young captain will learn the nuances of making tactical decisions in the fast-paced world of T20 cricket. Titans, the IPL 2022 winners and current runners-up, are now seventh on the table with two points from as many games after a win over Mumbai Indians and a defeat against Chennai Super Kings. “It’s a fast game. You make regular tactical decisions. It’s not like Test cricket, where it plays out over a long period of time. “I’m very impressed with the way he conducts himself as a leader,” Kirsten said. the media on the eve of GT’s day match against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday. Kirsten said Gill, who took over as GT skipper after Hardik Pandya moved to MI, has adapted well to his role.

“I think he has embraced it (captaincy) very well. He has shown some good leadership qualities. He is a smart guy. He is a young captain and there is a lot to learn, especially in T20. So he will learn as he goes along. ” Kirsten admitted the Titans were well below par in their big 63-run defeat to the Super Kings, which also affected their net run rate.

“Like any cricket team, you want to play the best you can. We weren’t good enough that day (against CSK). I think we’ve recognized that and we’ve had our conversations about what we need to do.” ensure that we can take better advantage of our skills.

“Every team has different kinds of strengths and we didn’t show that in the CSK match and we just have to move on,” he said.

“We lost one game by a big margin. We have to make up for that. We know teams finish on the same points and you know one will go through (based on NRR). So it’s something we constantly take into account.” But we will need a really good win somewhere,” he explained.

Kirsten, however, was not ready to be critical of Gujarat’s top order, which has not shot as expected so far.

“Our top class did well. Sai Sudharsan’s 96 in the final last year was one of the better knocks I have seen in T20. The most important thing is to give people the opportunity to showcase their skills.

“If you’re just confused and get into crisis management because you haven’t won a match, you can get into trouble very quickly. T20 is a high-risk game and you have to allow the players to do that. ” take a little risk.” Regardless of the outcome, Kirsten said it is imperative to support the players and create a friendly atmosphere in the locker room.

“You have to support your players and believe in what they can do. We have tried to build continuity in this program across the GT team and make sure the boys feel comfortable in their positions and let them know they are supported even though they may not be there all the time fire,” he added.
