Shubman Gill played in all seven games for the Kolkata Knight Riders during the first phase of the 2021 IPL. He scored 132 runs for his franchise at a disappointing average of 18.85, with a batting average below 120.

The right-handed batsman will look to improve his numbers in Phase 2 of the 2021 IPL. Last year, Gill scored more than 400 runs in the IPL season played in the United Arab Emirates.

It will be interesting to see if he can do the same in the golf nation this year.
