By India Today Sports Desk: Former India pacer Atul Wassan has claimed that MS Dhoni will be the next victim in the list of Shubman Gill after the GT opener has eliminated the likes of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
It has been the best season for Gill with the bat in the IPL this year, as he has already scored 851 runs this season and looks all set to win the Orange Cap.

The 23-year-old has scored three hundreds in his last four games, with the last two coming in games against Rohit’s Mumbai Indians and RCB, where Kohli is one of the main batters.
Gill had started the season with a fifty against CSK in the opener of the campaign and also scored 42 in the Qualifier one against Dhoni’s side.
Now, former Indian pacer Wassan feels that Dhoni could be the next one Gill could conquer. Speaking to ABP News, Wassan said that the GT opener would gobble up the trio of Dhoni, Kohli and Rohit with the way he is batting and the next victim could be the CSK skipper.
Wassan said that the GT team has looked excellent throughout the competition and said that they have made an impact in IPL since making their debut last year.
Wassan also hailed Gill as a grounded player and said despite the glitz and glamour of the IPL, the 23-year-old has remained composed.
“I feel Gill will gobble up the trio of Dhoni, Kohli, Rohit because the way he is batting. I feel next in line is Mahi. Even the Gujarat Titans team has looked excellent. Mumbai were in the game with Suryakumar Yadav there, but Gujarat have a good bowling depth as well. Despite coming in as a new team, they have made an impact. We had seen such formidability from CSK. Talking about Gill, he is a well grounded player. Anyone could lose focus given the money and fame in IPL, but Gill has looked composed,” said Wassan.
