Team Indian and Gujarat Titans batter Shubman Gill took to Twitter on late Friday (April 29) and made a request to the richest man on the planet, Elon Musk. He apparently urged Musk to take over the food delivery app Swiggy and they are not delivering on time. Notably, Musk is the new boss of the micro-blogging website Twitter and he aims to improve the functioning of the platform.
Time and again, the Tesla boss has emphasized on the same as well. Ever since Musk took over Twitter, there have been a lot of jokes on social media with fans cheekily asking the South African to take over the brand they use and improve its quality. As Gill seems like an avid user of Swiggy, he wants Musk to gain command of the app.
Shubman Gill’s post went viral in no time
“Elon musk, please buy swiggy so they can deliver on time. @elonmusk #swiggy,” tweeted Gill. The comment section got flooded in no time as fans came up with different reactions to Gill’s post. While many found the young batter’s tweet humourous, several also pulled his leg for ordering packaged food.

Meanwhile, the 22-year-old is currently plying his trade in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, wherein he’s serving his new franchise Gujarat Titans. The young batter started off the tournament with a bang and was expected to pile up a plethora of runs this season. However, runs have dried up for him lately. As we head towards the business end of the competition, GT would want the star batter to get his mojo back.
As far as his numbers are concerned, Gill has slammed 229 runs in eight games with his average being below 30. Nonetheless, his recent failures haven’t really affected the team as GT have won seven of their first eight games. Hence, the Hardik Pandya-led side is just one win away from officially securing a place in the IPL 2022 playoffs. Skipper Hardik, Rashid Khan and David Miller have been the key performers of the side.
Meanwhile, let’s look at how Twitter reacted to Shubman Gill’s post:

One delivery guy being assigned two orders and it always takes more than an hour to deliver. But I found a solution now, cook myself and uninstalled your app long back

Failman Gill. No one's going to spoonfeed you now. Senior cricketer isn't scoring runs and is not even bothered about his place . Never seen a more relaxed player than you
