Gill communicated fulfillment with his thump after the failure against Pakistan.

"Very dissatisfied with how I left the day before yesterday. Vital that I polished it off this evening with Rohit bhai, and we did it," he said.

"He (Rohit) likes to take the bowlers on aeronautical, and I like to hit a greater number of limits than sixes, so we complete one another."

On Nepal's bowling, Gill said, "They bowled very well with the new ball, they tested us. We realized once the ball gets wet, it'll get simpler for the batsmen. That is the very thing the discussion was in the changing area."

— BCCI (@BCCI) Nepal posted a respectable total, but skipper Rohit Paudel stated that they were 30-40 runs behind.

"Our openers did a generally excellent occupation for us. In the center request, we might have improved. We were perhaps 30-40 short. "We could have gotten 260-270 if we had done better in that phase," Paudel stated.

"In the last 4-5 months our lower request has worked effectively, we are extremely glad for them. I think in these circumstances it was truly hard on account of the dew, yet our bowlers did all around well."
