Former Pakistani captain Salman Butt pointed out that Indian opener Shubman Gill needs to take his innings deep. Butt added that the player should score big runs because he has a lot of talent. The ex-international’s comments came after Gill missed his half-century with seven runs in the second ODI of India’s three-match series against the West Indies on Sunday. Notably, Gill got a bottom edge from his bat on Kyle Mayers’ delivery while trying to play a scoop. Mayers comfortably completed the catch on the follow-up to claim his wicket.

“Shubman Gill played well but he loses his wicket even after he got a set. It happens all the time. He’s such a good player, I think he should keep going, he needs to score big because he has a lot of talent. ” said Butt on his YouTube channel.

Speaking of the match, India put on a spirited show to beat the West Indies by two wickets in the final-over thriller. Chasing a 312 point goal at Queen’s Park Oval, Trinidad, India came home with just two balls left. Axar Patel played an unbeaten 64-run knock-off of 35 balls to take the team home, despite the required run rate increasing to 10 runs per over by the end of the match.


Previously, the West Indies placed 311 for 6, riding Shai Hope’s 115 and Nicholas Pooran’s 74. Shardul Thakur was the bowlers’ pick for India with figures of 3 for 54 in 7 overs. In response, Shreyas Iyer hit a 63 to contribute to the cause of India along with Axar. For the West Indies, Alzarri Joseph and Kyle Mayers picked two wickets each.

With the win in the second ODI, India won the series 2-0 with one game to go. India had won the first game at the same location on Friday by a narrow margin of three runs.
