Shubman Gill & Nitish Rana are suffocated by their insecurities- Brendon McCullum

Yeah ... I think McCullum's time as KKR coach, and maybe as a coach period, has passed.  You. just. don't. call. your. players. out. in. public.  Ever.  

Naah. He's won the CPL last season for the same owners without breaking a sweat. They will back him.

 

Public criticism of young players isn't okay at all but to see first Punter on Shaw and then McCullum on Gill doing it repeatedly shows they have the backing of their franchises. Shaw used that to motivate himself, waiting to see if Gill can do the same. Too good a player not to turn it around and become an all format superstar.

Hard to tell if Shaw used Ponting's call out, or just took to Amre's coaching.  Had Shastri and Kohli called him out too?  Maybe that was his motivation, although I'll never be convinced that it is the right approach.

According to what he posted on social media , the memes and trolling affected him and that motivated him.

Aus and Kiwis are tough. Be it Greg Chappell or McCullum, they will not shy away from doing what they think is the right for the team ... They don’t follow any rules like don’t do this or that. They try to innovate, bringing new concepts to the table 

 

Good insights into the challenges KKR faces and how it wants to move forward ... Many Ind batsmen are selfish and will first look to get to their 20-30 first, which is not acceptable in a format like T20

Difference is. Both Shaw and Gill different type of batsmen. Gill is in Kohli mode who himself took several years before starting to make impact in IPL.

Agree with McCullum..  You can't play in the Powerplay like that in modern day cricket.  Although I don't know how come Nitish Rana suddenly became a opener? He is a specialist middle order bat. 

Gill has to pick gaps better.  He hits too many to the fielders.  Prefers ground strokes as well.

Gill has a FC SR of 71. By nature he is an aggressive player. Sooner or later, will adapt to the demands of LO cricket as well

Gill has been backed for an entire season and a half. He has been given 

the opener"s spot, which provides the best chance for a batsman to shine and make a name for himself. What more does he need to feel secure? He just doesn't have the T20 game. He needs an Amre type coach to help him adapt. Rana does well on ocassion but doesn't inspire much confidence.

Dhawan always batted at a good SR in ODIs but struggled in T20s. Good SR in one format doesn't always translate into good SR in another.

Yup, limted batsman who has occasional good days.

Wrong comparison. Dhawan was not an aggressive player when he was 21-22. He was like most other Indian batsmen of that time - content with a 80-85 SR in List A games and 110-115 in T20s. He evolved as a batsman after few seasons of IPL. Reason why it took him nearly 7-8 years post FC debut to have a proper career for India

 

Gill from the beginning has been an aggressive stroke maker. Needs some minor tweaks to go a level up in T20s
