Gill revealed in an interview with the YouTube channel The Grade Cricketer that he began wearing the red handkerchief during his U-19 days and that after he made huge runs, he opted to wear it in every match. He insists, though, that it is not a superstitious notion and that he wears it since it is how he began his white-ball career in India, where players are not authorized to wear colored gear in first-class games.

“To be honest, I don’t think it’s a superstition. The red ball is used for the majority of our age-group cricket. We don’t actually have white-ball cricket until the U-19 World Cups and other events. So, when I first started playing white-ball cricket, that’s when I started taking it since you can’t carry a red handkerchief in a red-ball game because the umpire won’t let you wear it on the top of your pants,” Shubman Gill explained.

“I’m not sure why, but I loved the color red for some reason, so I began wearing the red handkerchief, and obviously when you perform well and score runs, you tend to go with whatever you’re doing.” So there’s one thing that resonated with me, and I think about it all the time,” Gill added.
