At present, Shubhman Gill can only claim a permanent place in India’s Test team. But in the future, Shubhman Gill is sure to become India’s pivotal player in all three formats. Gill, the star of Kolkata Knight Riders, is likely to be retained by the team this season as well. Opener Gill is an exceptional batsman.
KKR was led by Owen Morgan last season. Morgan was also instrumental in helping the team reach the final. But the team may not retain Morgan, who has been frustrating in batting. Shubhman Gill is a player who can be considered as the new captain of the team. Despite being a young player, the team will benefit if he is retained now. Gill is set to replace Virat Kohli in the Indian team.
With Rohit Sharma, the Mumbai Indians do not need to look for a new captain. But the 34-year-old Rohit will still have a long way to go. That is why Mumbai need to make moves that look ahead to the future of the team. Mumbai are likely to retain Ishant Kishan for the fourth time this season. It’s the best move for Mumbai.
Ishan, the wicket-keeper, is a batsman who can bat in any position. Ishaan is also a player who has the potential to become a captain in the future. So Mumbai will keep Ishant Kishan. After three years of mega auctions, it would not be surprising to see Ishaan at the helm of Mumbai.
Winning the Orange Cap for the second season in a row is not an easy task. But Ruthuraj Gaekwad is a player who has achieved such a rare feat. Ruthuraj, who has played only one or two matches for India, has become one of the most sought after players in a short span of time. Ruthuraj, who adheres to CSK’s style, is a player who calmly comes back and does his thing.
It remains to be seen whether MS Dhoni will be seen next season. Although he cannot be given the captaincy right now, it can be said that Ruthurajan is the future captain of CSK. It is very important that he is retained and nurtured.
