Watch: Shubman Gill Gets Dismissed in Most Bizarre way in the 2nd ODI
Shubman On Sunday during the second game against the West Indies in Trinidad, Gill appeared to be on pace to reach his first ODI fifty. Unfortunately, he made a bizarre decision that was unnecessary at the time and lost his wicket. Gill hit a beautiful 43 off 49 balls.
Gill was dismissed because he attempted a sneaky ramp shot. Although it appeared that he had already made up his mind to play that shot and score a boundary, the ball was not available for the shot. The bowler eventually took the catch when the ball struck the bottom of the bat and lobbed back at him.

Following such a dismissal, Gill would undoubtedly be cursing himself. After the loss of skipper Shikhar Dhawan, it was unnecessary to play a shot like that. Fans would hope that he would learn from his error.
West Indies set an India target of 312 runs thanks to Shai Hope's century (115 runs off 135 balls). After the home captain won the toss and decided to bat first against India in the game, Nicholas Pooran 74 off 77 also played a significant role in helping Windies reach a score of over 300. The best bowler was Shardul Thakur, who picked 3 wickets for team India.
For team India, Shreyas Iyer (63) and Sanju Samson (54) both scored impressive half-centuries in India's successful chase of 312 runs, but it was Axar Patel's unbeaten 35-ball 64 that finally determined the outcome as India dashed home with two balls to spare. For the hosts, Alzarri Joseph (2/46) and Kyle Mayers (2/48) each claimed two wickets.
The next ODI will be played on 27th July at Port of Spain then the series will move to the T20 format which will see India take on West Indies in a 5 match T20I series. West Indies will look to win the T20I series to give fans some kind of joy.
