Yuvraj Singh's Post Gets a Funny Response from Gill
Gujarat Titans' opening batsman Shubman Gill delivered an impressive performance by scoring a remarkable century, leading his team to a thrilling six-wicket victory over RCB and effectively eliminating Bangalore from the IPL playoff race. Gill's exceptional innings not only dashed RCB's hopes in the IPL 2023 but also ensured a playoff spot for Rohit Sharma's Mumbai Indians (MI) in this edition of the lucrative league.
Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh expressed his admiration for Gill, whose match-winning knock secured the top position for GT in the IPL 2023 standings.
Post Details and Relations
Singh also took the opportunity to encourage MI to reward the young opener with a car. He shared a video on Instagram, saying, "Congratulations @shubmangill @mumbaiindians waiting for the gedi now #Akash how about one from your collection #GTvsRCB @iplt20." Gill, who had played an exceptional innings against Royal Challengers Bangalore, responded to Singh's post, humorously remarking, "Then you'll finally get to see my driving page."
Earlier, Yuvraj had playfully teased Gill about his driving skills, suggesting that he should focus on playing his delightful drives on the cricket field rather than on the road. Singh shared a video of himself and Gill driving a car, where he mockingly commented on the younger player's driving abilities.
In his Instagram post, the World Cup-winning all-rounder said, "Janamdin mubarak ho @shubmangill. I'm glad your driving skills on the pitch are better than your driving skills on the road. All the best for @glamcricket! Keep that bat blazing."
