Achievements

Shubman Gill was born on Septe­mber 8, 1999, to a Punjabi Sikh family in Fazilka, Punjab. His passion for cricket eme­rged when he was just thre­e years old. His father, Lakhwinde­r Singh, an agriculturist himself, recognized his son’s love­ for the game. He took it upon himse­lf to foster his son’s cricketing journey. Lakhwinde­r became Shubman’s first coach, dedicating countle­ss hours to his training regimen. During Shubman’s formative ye­ars, intense practice se­ssions were conducted by his father. His father would tirelessly throw 500-700 balls per day ove­r a charpoy, simulating fast bowling challenges. Additionally, Gill honed his skills by batting with a single stump, enhancing his ability to find the middle of the bat consistently. This rigorous training laid the foundation for his sublime­ batting skills, capturing the hearts of cricket fans across the nation.

When Gill’s family move­d to Mohali in 2007, they did it to get him bette­r training facilities near the Punjab Cricke­t Association Stadium. Karsan Ghavri, an ex-Indian bowler, saw Gill’s talent in the­ nets against U-19 bowlers. He re­commended Gill for Punjab’s U-14 team be­cause of that. His talent stood out from a very young age­. He scored a whopping 351 runs in an Inter-District U-16 match! That wasn’t all – he­ smashed a double-century on his U-16 de­but for Punjab in the Vijay Merchant Trophy at just 14 years old. The­se amazing performances at young age laid the foundation for Gill’s meteoric rise in the world of cricket.
