Move over Virat Kohli. There’s a young new cricket player who is all set to steal your swag.
Indian cricket players may bowl many a maiden over on the cricket pitch. But when it comes to their fashion quotient or their swag off the field, they fare rather poorly. Except for Virat Kohli (and maybe Hardik Pandya), no other names come to mind.
But the buzz around the recent IPL matches had us googling all the new, younger players and from among them, Punjabi lad Shubman Gill (from Firozpur) got us to sit up and take notice.
The striking, strong-jawed boy scored 203 runs in 13 matches at the IPL matches where he played for the Kolkata Knight Riders. They apparently paid over One Crore Rupees to acquire him for the team. In fact, he was even part of the contingent which represented India in the Under 19 World Cup in New Zealand.
A look at Gill’s Instagram account with over Two Lakh followers has us convinced that if it weren’t for cricket, his sense of style and handsome looks would have made him a supermodel or a Bollywood superstar.
He seems most comfortable in athleisure but doesn’t mind posing in a crisp formal suit, once in a while.
Rumour also has it that Suhana Khan, daughter of Bollywood badshah Shah Rukh Khan, has a huge crush on him. Now whether, like Virat Kohli, Shubman will score himself a Bollywood bride is yet to be seen. But if you need any convincing, take a look at more pix from his feed….
