Gill, given a chance to open the batting in the absence of indisposed Chris Lynn and injured Sunil Narine, made full use of it by scoring a 39-ball 65.

KKR ended up on the losing side but the U-19 World Cup winner made a strong claim to be considered for the opening role regularly as he has to bat at No.6 or 7 more often than not for the franchise.

Today Shubman used the opportunity and did really well. It shows his class as player,” Karthik told reporters at the post match press conference at the Eden Gardens.

“He’s able to stay calm under pressure situations, which is a very unique skill to have. He has delivered for us over and over again.
