Shubman Gill, the opening batter for India’s cricket team, has experienced a health setback, making it unlikely that he will play in the key match against Pakistan planned for October 14 in Ahmedabad. A important member of India’s opening pair with skipper Rohit Sharma and the leading run-scorer in one-day internationals this year, Gill is currently dealing with ongoing health problems.
According to reports from Indian media, Gill’s platelet count has significantly decreased as a result of dengue infection, which he is still recovering from. He was admitted to a hospital in Chennai, and the Indian cricket board’s medical staff is in charge of managing his care.
Gill’s illness forced him to miss India’s opening World Cup game against Australia, and it’s likely that he won’t play in the following contest against Afghanistan. According to sources, he might not fully recuperate in time for India’s World Cup campaign encounter against Pakistan.
In terms of his batting talent and the steadiness he offers to the opening combination, Gill’s departure will be a big loss for the Indian cricket team. The crew and supporters will be watching for developments on his health and praying for a quick recovery.
