Simon Doull had a controversial stand in Shubman Gill’s innings of 94 against the Lucknow Super Kings, saying that if a batter is struggling to play the big shots, teams should opt to retire him. He also noted that a player like Rahul Tuatia could have been introduced at that time in order to boost GT’s result even further.

“Shopman was tiring. He just wasn’t able to push the boundaries as well as he could. And that could happen. Listen…it might be controversial, but I’m waiting for the day when a guy gets 75 or 80 off 45 balls and gets cooked after the afternoon heat of 45 degrees, so he can’t get there, so he says “Okay Tewatia, you’re out. Doll said, speaking to Cricbuzz.

“I say over and over, milestones don’t matter in this game. I know people will keep saying a hundred hundred. Yeah it does, but it’s a hundred if you win. If you lose, it’s Jack. I feel like I was right there when a guy says he’s tired and can’t get over Borders If you have ammo in the bank why not use it?

Gujarat Titans scored an impressive 227 for two against Lucknow Super Giants in their Indian Premier League match on Sunday.

After being sent to bat, defending champions GT got off to a strong start with both Wriddhiman Saha (81 off 43 balls) and Shubman Gill (94 off 51) bowling from the start, helping the team muster 78 runs in the Powerplay. Jill remained undefeated.

The two shared a 142-run opening partnership in just 12.1 overs.

Last month, Dole also slammed Virat Kohli for his innings against Lucknow Super Giants in Chinnaswamy.

“Kohli was worried about a personal achievement. He took 10 balls to score eight runs. He started like a train, hitting 10 balls from 42 to 50 runs,” said Doll.
