Indian opening batsman Shubman Gill, a crucial asset for India’s cricket team, has encountered a health setback, making it improbable for him to partake in the crucial match against Pakistan scheduled for October 14 in Ahmedabad. Gill, who has been the leading run-scorer in one-day internationals this year and a vital component in India’s opening duo with captain Rohit Sharma, is presently contending with persistent health issues.
Reports from Indian media indicate that Gill has not yet recuperated from dengue fever, leading to a significant decline in his platelet count. He was admitted to a medical facility in Chennai, and a medical team from the Indian cricket board is supervising his treatment.
Regrettably, Gill had to miss India’s initial World Cup match against Australia due to his ailment, and it appears likely that he will be absent from the upcoming game against Afghanistan. Sources suggest that he may not fully recover in time for the match against Pakistan, which would be a setback for India’s World Cup campaign.
Gill’s nonattendance will pose a significant loss for the Indian cricket team, both in terms of his batting prowess and the stability he brings to the opening partnership. The team and fans will be anxiously awaiting updates on his health and hoping for a swift recovery.
