Meanwhile, South Africa sealed the Test series against Pakistan, defeating them in the 2nd Test at Cape Town by nine wickets to take a 2-0 lead. The third and final Test will take place at Johannesburg from January 11 onwards.

Now, let's take a look at the top news from today:

Shubman Gill will make his senior debut in 2019, predicts Yuvraj Singh 

Indian veteran Yuvraj Singh has made a bold prediction about Punjab teammate and budding youngster Shubman Gill. Yuvraj feels that the youngster will make his senior debut in 2019.

"Definitely he's someone who can represent India for a long time. He's a very special talent. After a long time, I have seen a young guy whose batting I would like to watch. After 2019 World Cup, he should make it to the side," said Yuvraj prior to Punjab's Ranji Trophy encounter against Bengal.

Shubman Gill has been in sensational form over the past year or so. He has been scoring plenty of runs with the bat for Punjab in all the domestic tournaments, including the ongoing Ranji Trophy as well.
