Former West Indies captain Brian Lara believes that Kolkata Knight Riders opener Shubman Gill is just one match away from a big knock. He also feels that Gill has been a bit unlucky and has shown glimpses of form in the ongoing tournament in the UAE, which is why he shouldn't be replaced in the playing eleven. Gill has scores of 48, 13, 9 and 30 since the restart of IPL 2021 in the UAE.
"This guy (Shubman Gill), he is a bit unlucky. If you look at him bat, he is in some form, alright. And I believe he's just a match away from a big score. I think he gels really well with (Venkatesh) Iyer and I believe that both of them can come together and make something special, but replacing Shubman Gill now is not something that KKR wants to do," said Lara on Game Plan show on Star Sports.
