Jason Roy Cricket Projections: Leaves Aside Harry Brook, Yashasvi Jaiswal, and Rinku Singh for Future Batting Maestro
Opening batsman for England in the 2019 World Cup, Jason Roy, chooses Shubman Gill as India’s future batting mastermind over Rinku Singh, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and Tilak Varma. Shubman Gill, 24, has had an amazing 2023, amassing 1584 runs in 29 One-Day Internationals so far.
In all three of the game’s formats in2023, Gill is the only batsman from India to have scored at least one century.
He toppled Babar Azam to take the top spot in the ICC ODI Batter’s rankings in November.
When Shubman Gill hit 208 against New Zealand in Hyderabad, he became the youngest batter to achieve two hundred runs in an ODI. Gill did not, however, have a fortunate ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 campaign.
Illness kept him out of the first six games, and he never really recovered.
He did, however, provide a few runs at bat, including a promising 80 runs in the semifinals.
During an ESPNCricinfo “You have to answer” segment, Jason Roy, who is now playing for the Chennai Braves in the Abu Dhabi T10 league, was asked to predict the future of batting. Roy favoured Shubman Gill over Harry Brook, his English teammate.
Similar to Shubman Gill, Brook had a bright beginning to his international career and was playing brilliantly for England, particularly in Test matches thanks to his aggressive style.
Sunrisers Hyderabad signed Harry Brook due to his aggressive style, and they placed a bid of 13.25 crores for him at the IPL 2023 Auction. He had a terrible debut IPL season, though, and fell short of his expectations.
Harry Brook’s massive touchdown against the Kolkata Knight Riders was his only standout performance in the 2023 Indian Premier League.
Following a terrible IPL 2023, Harry Brook lost form and found it difficult to produce significant runs for England in all three versions of the game.
While playing for England in the ODI World Cup 2023, Brook only managed to score 169 runs in six matches.
In the World Cup, the 24-year-old right-handed batter took Jason Roy’s place, but failed to make an impact.
