Gill’s approach is pretty much the same in every game. I want to restart all games. Joining the team as a young player and having that attitude is great. He may have taken it easy, but he doesn’t look like the man. Today’s hundred means a lot to me. The batting average was good, so it was just another step. The place was good today,” Rohit said.
