Second to Gill is Shreyas Iyer, who was the most-scoring Indian till Tuesday, and Gill’s 70 off 60 replaced Iyer in the second position. Iyer has scored 748 runs in his first 16 ODI innings. Navjot Singh Sidhu (725), Virat Kohli (655) and Dinesh Mongia (601) complete the top-five list for India.

Gill has all the ingredients in himself to become a stalwart in Indian cricket. The player has the technique, class, elegance, temperament and poise to reach the peak. It is still a long way to go for him to establish himself as a great, but the early days are showing rosy signs.
