Former captain of the England cricket team John Morgan said he would have preferred Shubman Gil on Yashasvi Jaiswal in the Indian squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024. Jaiswal has been included in the 15-member squad with Rohit Sharma as designated fly-halfs, with Gill finding a place in the reserves. Both Gill and Jaiswal had decent outings in IPL 2024 as they scored 426 and 435 runs respectively for their teams. However, the selectors opted for Jaiswal and Morgan said he would have opted for Gill instead as he is a future leader in his opinion who would have done well in big moments.

“The only decision I probably would have made differently if I had selected a team was: I would have had Shubman Gill rather than Yashasvi Jaiswal. Because I played alongside Shubman Gill. I know how he thinks. I know how he works. For me “He is a future leader within this team and I think in big moments the more leaders the better. Even if he's just sitting on the sidelines, you need inspiration here and there and everywhere,” Morgan said during an interaction on Sky Sports.

In the meantime, Rinku Singh also spoke about his exclusion from the Indian team.

“Yes, someone feels a bit bad if they don't get selected despite a good performance. However, this time I couldn't get selected due to the team combination. That's not it. is okay, we shouldn't think too much about things that are not in our hands Yes, I was a little upset at first, whatever happened, it's good Rohit Bhaiya didn't say anything. special.
