Makeshift movement step 2 - Frontfoot.JPG


When he plays the shots, the head does not falls. The feet are pointing towards the direction in which he intends to play the shot. He does not has full swin of the bat, rather it is half way through and punches with more importance given to timing and placement. he also does not misses on punishing the bad balls on the leg stump line as is normally expected from any good specialist batsman.

Highest Scores in domestic matches:
2018 - 2019 Ranji Trophy versus Tamil Nadu - 268
2017 - 2018 Ranji Trophy versus Bengal - 129


Shubman's parents shifted their residence within Punjab from a village to near Mohali so that he could move higher in the cricketing system. Initially Shubman got coaching by his father.

He was adjudged as the best Junior cricketer by BCCI in 2013.

He has played in Under 16 Inter district competition and Under - 16 state competition as well. He scored unbeaten double ton in Vijay merchant trophy.

Shubman's list A debut was in Vijay Hazare trophy 2016 against Vidarbha.


Shubman made FC debut for Punjab in 2017 - 2018 Ranji trophy season. He played the last two matches of Punjab as opening batsman alongside Jiwanjot Singh as opening partner in Ranji Trophy 2017 - 2018 with a 50+ in debut innings and 100 in his second FC match.


In the 2018 world cup played in NZ, he was the second highest run scorers among all teams with 372 runs from 5 innings. He scored 2 tons and 1 fifty to average 124 with a very good strike rate of 112.38. Out of the 6 innings , he batted as one down in 4 innings and once as opener. He was Indians top runs scorer outscoring even the flamboyant opener Prithvi Shaw who scored 261 runs in 5 innings.

Shubman's best innings imo was of 102 runs from 94 balls in Semis against Pakistan. He played all Pakistan bowlers with ease. Shubman won "Player of the Torunament" award.

On the basis of his three consecutive 50's in WC, he got picked by Kolkata Knight Riders for INR 1.8 crores in the IPL auction while the WC was underway. He had an average IPL with 203 runs in 11 innings. The runs were less because he batted mostly at 6 and 7 in the batting order. He hardly batted at 5. His highest batting order was opener but in one match. Probably he will get to bat higher in top order in IPL 2019.


Shubman later had few decent to good series in LIST A tours. He was not converting his 50's into big knocks but the breakthrough innings came to him with a massive 268 from 328 balls batting as opener in ongoing Ranji Trophy match against Tamil Nadu. Tamil Nadu did not have the best of the bowlign attack with Ravichandra Ashwin representing India on tour of Australia, SLA Rahil Shah being replaced by inexperienced SLA Kishore who actually took the wicket of Shubman deceiving him with the spin and length as he stepped out of crease to play the ball. Still it wasnt a bad attack with Natarajan and K Vignesh and the attack as whole lacking very experienced bowlers. With that knock he surpassed Reetinder Sodhi's 251* versus Maharashtra which was previous record by Punjab openers.

I expect him to debut for India in second half of 2018 or early in 2019. What would be interesting is which format does he gets debut for. Personally with the test openers struggling he should be tried for the continous home test series in 2019. Both him and Prithvi being around 19 years or so, they can be long term options for India in at least two formats. With the WC 2019, expect retirement of Dhoni but that would not help him much as Shubman is a specialist batsman. Rohit and Shikhar are established opening pair in LOI, but he can get in as squad player and be used to rest Shikhar / Rohit post WC matches and develop team for next WC.

Good luck to him :thumb

Dismissed for 10 runs in first innings of Round 7 match between Punjab and Hyderabad. LBW to Ravi Teja. Poor technique displayed. Playing a incutter ball by Ravi Trja, his bat came straight down but the head was pointing more towards cover position. Hope this was one off technically flaw.

Single to long off and that's the 100* from 112 balls. Nice innings with just one wrong shot so far. :clap

With Agarwal and Shaw it's looking more difficult for Shubman to break into the test team. Maybe at 6 ahead of Rohit and Vihari but Kohli and selectors seem obsessed with giving Rohit more chances
