<p>Since moving up to the third place, Shubman has suffered through a lean spell in the red-ball format. Batting at number three, he has only managed to score 189 runs at an average of 23.62 in 9 innings. He has also failed to reach a half-century.</p>
<p>In the first innings of the Hyderabad Test match against England, he was in terrible form again, managing just 23 before giving up to debutant Tom Hartley.</p>

<p>The 35th over was on its fifth delivery when Gill attempted to unshackle himself and hit a shot to mid-wicket, where Ben Duckett was easily caught to finish his time in the middle.</p>
<p>Pietersen said that Shubman should be encouraged to become a better player and to elevate his game on the off-side by head coach Dravid, who also assisted him in changing his style of play.</p>
<p>Rahul Dravid, who is in the dressing room with him, is the one who altered my strategy. Go spend time with Gill and accomplish the things he discussed with me; I’m not sure whether he will see this broadcast. Encourage him to hit the ball on the off-side, work on improving his length selection, and rotate his stroke. Pietersen said, “Do things that will help him become a better player,” on the JioCinema Lunch program.</p>
<p>Shubman’s spot in the Indian Test squad has come under scrutiny after disastrous performances in the back-to-back series, with other players lining up to take his position.</p>
<p>Pietersen praised Gill but had issue with his ability to rotate strike, which often necessitates taking a risk in order to score runs.</p>
<p>“He’s a great player in Shubman Gill, and no, I’m not upset with his exit strategy. I find it disappointing that he still lacks the ability to rotate strikes. But he’s still a child. Give him that capacity and that framework. Pietersen said, “The world is his if he rotates the strike and learns that from Rahul Dravid and if the latter takes him under his wings.”</p>
