Shubman Gill (born 8 September 1999) is an Indian cricketer. He is a right-hand, top-order batsman from Punjab. He made his first-class debut for Punjab against Bengal in the 2017–18 Ranji Trophy, in late 2017, with a half-century in the game and 129 runs in the next match against Services. He made his international debut for the India cricket team in January 2019.

He was drafted into India's Under-19 side as the vice-captain for the 2018 Under-19 Cricket World Cup. Shubman scored 372 runs at an average of 124.00 at the 2018 ICC U-19 World Cup, where he batted at number three to play a crucial role in India's record fourth world title and was adjudged the edition's Player of the Tournament. His match-winning 102 not out in the semi-final against arch-rivals Pakistan U-19 drew praises from batting greats like Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, V. V. S. Laxman, and Sourav Ganguly.
