Shubman Gill, who is one of the most promising batsmen in the Kolkata Knight Riders outfit, has not really had one of the best seasons at IPL 2021. However, Gill managed to score a match-winning knock in KKR's last encounter.

Speaking exclusive on Star Sports show Game Plan, West Indies batting legend Brian Lara talks about why KKR wouldn’t consider replacing Shubman Gill. "This guy (Shubman Gill), he is a bit unlucky, if you look at him bat, he is in some form, alright. And I believe he’s just a match away from a big score. I think he gels really well with Iyer (Venkatesh) and I believe that both of them can come together and make something special, but replacing Shubman Gill now is not something that KKR wants to do," said Brian Lara

West Indies batting legend Brian Lara also discussed - PBKS's chances of winning their games and the potential that their team has. "Yeah I think so, they have the capability. They are not playing great cricket at the moment. Their batting has just always been their strength and that has come up very short. Nicholas Pooran, and Chris Gayle got out on a couple of opportunities even their captain as well KL Rahul and they miss Mayank Agarwal. So for me, their batting is the one thing that they depended on in the past. They post big totals and try to defend it and if they don’t post big totals, they find it very difficult with the bowling attack that they have. Ravi Bishnoi is performing well and Mohammed Shami as you know is a professional and they expect that from him. Their batting has to be clicking and if they do click they give themselves that slight chance, it doesn’t mean that they can pull it off but they give themselves a better chance than they have been giving themselves in recent matches," said Brian Lara.
