DC vs KKR in IPL 2021: Good news for Kolkata Knight Riders, Shubman Gill finally delivers; completes 100 4s in IPL- KKR opening batsman Shubman Gill has come back to form after KKR continued to go ahead with him in the 7th consecutive innings. The right-handed batsman made full use of his opportunities and rode on his luck as he nearly survived a caught out. He contributed 43 against Delhi Capitals at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad. Unfortunately, he couldn’t complete his fifty. The comeback innings comes after Shubman Gill managed just 89 runs in his first 6 innings.
Gill was under fire to deliver and thus he will be quite happy to overcome the pressure at the top order.
“I think the pressure of expectation is getting to him (Gill). Before the Australia series, he was just a promising young cricketer. But after the success, there is now an expectation for him. I feel he should just go and freely bat, forget about everything,” Sunil Gavaskar said on Shubman Gill’s poor form on Star Sports.

IPL 2021: Why Shubman Gill is important for KKR?
Shubman Gill is a vital cog for KKR since the last IPL. He had smashed 440 runs in 14 matches, providing a consistent start to his IPL franchise throughout the season. The youngster’s form can help other batsmen to continue to play at their natural position. If Gill is able to deliver in upcoming matches then it is highly likely that KKR might end up qualifying in the playoffs.
