India got themselves in a hole on a flat pitch and posted 85/3 at lunch on day one of the first Test against Bangladesh. 

The K L Rahul-led India expectedly opted to bat but squandered the opportunity by allowing the Bangladesh bowlers to get on top of them.

Opener Shubman Gill perished to a poor shot, an avoidable sweep and walked back after scoring 20 runs off 40 balls. 

Gill, who has been touted as a prodigious and generational talent, has struggled in Test cricket after enjoying a fantastic start to his caeer. 

During India's tour of Australia in 2020-21, Gill scored 45, 35*, 50, 31 and 91 in five innings. 

If you look at Gill's numbers in last nine Test matches, the right-handed batter has struggled immensely. 

In the last 16 innings, Gill has scored just 340 runs at a dismal average of 22.66 and has been dismissed on zero twice. 

Gill also has the second-lowest average (29.5) as an opener for India in Tests since 2008 (min 12 innings).
