“We did well in Australia. We have been playing well overseas and I feel we can’t be better prepared for this final. As an opener, I feel you should be able to play session by session not just in England, overseas in general,” Gill told India TV. 

“It is very important to play session by session. In England whenever there is cloud around, the ball swings more and when the sun is out, it gets easier to bat. It is important to assess those conditions as an opener,” he said. 

Speaking of quarantine protocols in COVID times, he added: “It is very hard, you are in a room for 14 days there is not much to do. We are given workout schedules, we do that. We try to keep ourselves busy watching movies and spend some time on the I-pad but it is very hard,”

After making a fabulous debut against Australia in December last year, Shubman Gill faced a disappointing home series against England earlier this year and will be looking to give his best against New Zealand in the WTC final on June 18.
