Speaking of his knock towards New Zealand, Gill had stated: “This knock means a lot to me. I could not convert in the first ODI and third game (against Sri Lanka), I was looking to get a big score but it didn’t happen. Once I was set, the focus was to score as may runs as possible.
“With the additional fielder contained in the circle (in overs 11-40), we see the opposite groups pushing within the center overs. Even when wickets had been falling, I needed to point out intent to the bowlers as a result of it’s totally straightforward to bowl dot balls if the batter is just not exhibiting intent.
“So, that was my intent when the wickets were falling that ‘I will hit you if you are going to bowl bad balls’,” the 23-year-old stated throughout the press convention after the match.
