Meet the 17-year old Shubman Gill, who has floored Yuvraj Singh with the willow!

He had also caught the eye of Rahul Dravid in the past who is now his U-19 coach, reckoned he was a 'talented' prospect and great to have in the team.

Whenever you speak of stroke-makers and match-winner in the same breath, Yuvraj Singh is an unanimous choice for most, from the past and present. He has been a part of two WC winning teams, 2007 T20IWC, 2011 WC. So, with the body of work he carries, is that respectable that if he touts somebody as good, he must be good. Recently, this 17-year old Jharkhand boy has caught the eye of India’s former vice captain, Yuvraj Singh. Shubman Gill, who plays for Punjab, scored a maiden ton against Assam yesterday, which also marks his rising stocks. His knock came in the iconic Vijay Hazare Trophy, which is considered as the stepping stone to the Indian cricket team.

He played the memorable knock in the capital, Ferozshah Kotla ground. His brilliant 121 was laced with many boundaries. This tall, lanky youngster is really making headlines, ever since he was playing junior cricket. Hence, probably Yuvraj Singh had a keen eye on the youngster as they are statemates.

The youngster had also caught the eye of Rahul Dravid in the past who is now his U-19 coach, reckoned he was a ‘talented’ prospect and great to have in the team. Such words from such stalwarts mean that this boy is on the right track and could get fast-tracked soon if he continues to impress big former players.

He is also a part-time off-spinner, so adds that extra element to his game which will his chances of getting selected in the near future. Yuvraj Singh in his tweet also adds that the knock was played on a dodgy Ferozshah Kotla wicket.
