Gill’s journey in the match had been noteworthy, especially on Day 3 when he, along with Yashasvi Jaiswal, crafted a crucial 155-run partnership. This partnership played a pivotal role in steering India into a comfortable position after the early dismissal of skipper Rohit Sharma. While Jaiswal completed his third Test century on that day, Gill contributed with a gritty fifty.

Despite the disappointment on Day 4, Gill’s innings was praised for its ego-less approach, as mentioned by Knight. He emphasized that Gill didn’t attempt to match the flamboyance of Jaiswal but played a supportive role by rotating the strike and letting the younger batsman take charge. This mindset contributed to their substantial partnership and India’s advantageous position in the match.

Shubman Gill‘s recent shift to the number 3 position in Test cricket had been under scrutiny, particularly after a challenging performance in Hyderabad. However, he silenced critics with a stellar century in Vizag, showcasing his resilience and ability to bounce back after setbacks.
