When asked to pick between playing football with Pairs Saint-Germain forward Neymar or opening the innings with Tendulkar. However, the 22-year-old doesn’t choose the former. 

Meanwhile, Gill, who was part of India’s U-19 World Cup team which won the tournament in 2018. Also rates the win in Australia earlier this year higher than his U-19 triumph.
