'Used To Be Petrified Of Bouncer': Gill Reveals How He Faced His Fear Of Bouncer As A Kid
"He tried to bowl a bouncer but instead ended pitching it up. I realized this but still squatted and saw the ball hitting the edge of my bat to go the boundary. I realized he was not that fast after all. Soon I hit two-three more boundaries. This helped me raise my confidence level. This incident just eliminated all kinds of fear from my heart for leather balls and bouncers," he added.
Gill scored 259 runs in the six Test innings he played in Australia. It included a remarkable 91-run knock in the second innings of the Gabba Test when India chased 328 on the final day of the Test match.
The right-handed batsman has been included in the India squad for the first two Tests of the upcoming four-match series against England beginning February 5 in Chennai.
