Former Team India head coach and cricketer Ravi Shastri has predicted which batsman will surpass Virat Kohli’s record. Ravi Shastri, who is a commentator for IPL 2023, believes that this can be accomplished by Shubhaman Gill, the current opener for the Gujarat franchise.
Who will score the most runs in a single IPL season? Speculations by Ravi Shastri
Shastri stated on Star Sports, “As an opener, he had the opportunity to collect so many runs.” I believe Shubhaman Gill is in fine form, and he also bats in the top order. So he will have an excellent opportunity to score.
He added, “This time the deliveries are excellent, so you can score 80-100 runs in two or three innings.” He has scored 300-400 runs in a similar fashion. It is extremely challenging for me to evaluate more than 900 runs in a season. Therefore, only such a starter can shatter such a record.
