India's star batters Shubman Gill and Yashasvi Jaiswal are some of the players with a bright future ahead of them if they manage to continue their form and performance. They have played some amazing match-winning knocks, which helped them reach this position. Moreover, legendary West Indies batter Brian Lara predicted that these two talented, young batters could break his 400 runs record in the upcoming days. 

"There were players in my time who challenged, or at least went past the 300 mark - Virender Sehwag, Chris Gayle, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Sanath Jayasuriya. They were pretty much aggressive players. How many aggressive players do you have playing today? Especially in the England team. Zak Crawley and Harry Brook. Maybe in the Indian team? Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill. If they find the right situation, the records could be broken – both of them," said Brian Lara to The Daily Mail.

Gill is currently leading the Indian team in the Zimbabwe tour for a 5-match T20I series. After losing the first match, the Men in Blue lead the series, 2-1. In the second match, they won by 100 runs, and in the third game, they won by 23 runs. The credit goes to the batters for thrashing Zimbabwe's bowling attack in the first innings. 

Everyone is contributing and that's a good sign: Shubman Gill

Skipper Shubman Gill is proud of his teammates and their performances in the ongoing Zimbabwe series. While the initial two games didn't go well for the captain, he scored a half-century in the third match, showing his talent and calibre to the world. He further discussed the pitch and how the entire team contributes, which is a key takeaway from the matches played. 

"We know that if there is something in the wicket, it will be more with the new ball, and as the ball gets old it's a bit easier to score. Everyone is contributing and that's a good sign," said Shubman Gill at the post-match presentation.
