‘Show Some Rain, Thunderstorms’: Rahul Dravid Reveals Shubman Gill’s Dad’s Reaction To Not Getting Tons | Cricket news


With three centuries in his last six ODI innings, Indian opener Shubman Gill appears to be a man on a mission. After scoring a double century in the first ODI against New Zealand, Gill counter-attacked in the third and final match, setting the foundations for India’s 3–0 whitewash of the Kiwis. With the ODI World Cup to be held in India later this year, Gill is in eye-watering form as he looks to cement his place in the squad for the big event.

After the third ODI in Indore, India’s head coach Rahul Dravid had a frank talk with Gill.

During the interview, Dravid revealed what Gill’s father, Lakhwinder Gill, said to his son when he failed to convert his good starts into hundreds.

“So when Shubman scored a lot of fifties and sixties and was hitting well but not really converting them into big hundreds, his dad said, ‘Shubman are you going to show us just drizzle or are you actually going to show us some rain and rain what thunder.’ I think his dad will be happy he really made it rain this past month,” Dravid told Gill in a video shared by the BCCI.

However, Gill, who scored 112 off 78 balls in the third ODI, said his father would not be happy if he got off.

“I don’t think he will be too happy with this game because he would definitely say to me, ‘I should have continued in this game and looked like I got another big score in this game’ Shubman told Dravid.

“Tough job master your father man. If we don’t put pressure on you, he will. You’re in good hands,” replied Dravid.
