Gill set to play four County Championship games for Glamorgan

He will become only the third Indian player after Ravi Shastri and Sourav Ganguly to play for Glamorgan in the County Championship

Indian batter Shubman Gill will play for Glamorgan in the remainder of the 2022 County Championship season, subject to visa clearance. 

If all goes well, the 22-year-old will become only the third Indian player after Ravi Shastri (1987-91) and Sourav Ganguly (2005) to play for Glamorgan in the County Championship.

Cheteshwar Pujara (Sussex), Washington Sundar (Lancashire), Krunal Pandya (Warwickshire), Mohammed Siraj (Warwickshire), Umesh Yadav (Middlesex) and Navdeep Saini (Kent) are the other Indian players who have already played or will feature in the ongoing season.

Gill has been in outstanding form in the 50-over format. The stylish right-hander slammed his maiden international hundred in the third ODI against Zimbabwe and ended the series with 245 runs at an average of 122.50 and a strike rate of 120.68.

He has only featured in nine ODIs but already has 499 runs at an average of 71.29 and a strike rate of 105.3. In fact, no other Indian batter has scored more runs than Gill in their first nine ODIs.

Gill has also played 11 Tests, scoring 579 runs at an average of 30.47. However, he averages 53.27 in first-class cricket and has seven centuries and 15 fifties to his name. 

Glamorgan are currently placed third in the Division Two table and have four matches remaining - vs Worcestershire from September 5, vs Middlesex from September 12, vs Derbyshire from September 20, and vs Sussex from September 26.
