Team India batter Shubman Gill failed to deliver as he was dismissed for a duck in the first innings of the ongoing third Test at Niranjan Shah Stadium (formerly Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium) in Rajkot on Thursday, February 15.

Gill walked out to bat after early wicket of Yashasvi Jaiswal in the first session and looked far more comfortable out in the middle. The 24-year-old was constantly challenged by England pacers James Anderson and Mark Wood with new ball and was struggling to get off to the mark.

Shubman Gill was trying to settle in when he faced Mark Wood in the sixth over of India's first innings batting. Gill was dealt with the seaming ball from Wood that came at a rapid pace. However, the ball edged the ball when Indian batter was playing tentatively and caught by wicketkeeper Ben Foakes. Shubman Gill faced nine balls without scoring a run.

Shubman Gill played well in the Vizag Test, where he scored 104 off 147 balls in India's second innings batter. However, the Indian batter failed to come up with goods again. Failure to remain consistent with his batting led to fans furious at him and started to troll Gill brutally.

Many fans believe that Gill is a 'generational fraud' while others feel that he has to work on his technique by playing domestic matches.

Here's how fans reacted to Shubman Gill's dismissal

Rohit Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja keep England bowlers at bay after early collapse

After opting to bat first, India lost an early wicket in opener Yashasvi Jaiswal for 10, dismissed by Mark Wood at 22/1. Then, Wood removed Shubman Gill for a duck at 24/2.

Thereafter, skipper Rohit Sharma was joined by Rajat Patidar in the middle to carry on India's innings. However, Patidar didn't have a long stay at the crease as he was dismissed by Tom Hartley for 6 at 33/3. England left India in the position of reeling after three quick wickets.

However, things turned around after Ravindra Jadeja joined Rohit Sharma at the crease to take charge of India's innings. The pair ensured no further fall of wickets towards the end of first session.

After Lunch, Rohit and Jadeja dominated England bowlers in the second session and formed an unbeaten 152-run partnership in order to put India in the position of command after early collapse.

At the end of second session, India posted a total of 185/3 in 52 overs, with Rohit Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja batting on 97 and 68, respectively.
