India vs West Indies: Was disappointed in manner I got out in first two games, says Shubman Gill | Cricket News

PORT OF SPAIN: Shubman Gill might have been unlucky to miss a first international ton, but was happy to be able to convert a good start, which was wrong in the first two games.
Gill was out for 64 and 43 in the first two games and was “disappointed” to have wasted the strong starts.
“I was disappointed with the way I came out in the first two games. I tried to rotate the shot. After the rain break we let our instincts take over. I just wanted to get one of more when we came out before the last break,” said the flamboyant right-handed hitter, who got stuck on 98 when the rain spoiled the party.
Gill, who fell short of his career-best score, said if he had gotten one more, he would definitely have hit the triple-digit mark.
“It was bittersweet (Mission Century). I expected to have 100. It wasn’t in my control as it was raining, but I was happy with my sleeves,” he said during the post-match presentation ceremony here on Wednesday after India made a 3-0 series sweep of the West Indies on Wednesday.
Gill played a pivotal role in India’s success, finishing top scorer with 205 points while opening the batting alongside skipper Shikhar Dhawan.
The Punjab slugger praised the grounds at the Queen’s Park Oval which produced big runs in all three ODIs.
“The wicket played fantastic in all three games. The wickets were good, I thought the ball was eye-catching after 25-30 overs but they were great.”
The action now shifts to the five-match T20 series between the two sides which kicks off in Tarouba on Friday.
