Shubman Gill’s Battle with Dengue Casts Doubt Over His Participation in India’s World Cup Opener Against Australia
Shubman Gill’s dengue diagnosis raises doubts about his availability for India’s ODI World Cup opener against Australia at Chennai.
Indian opener Shubman Gill faces uncertainty over his participation in the ICC ODI World Cup opener against Australia due to a reported dengue infection.
The match is scheduled for Sunday at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium, but Gill’s positive dengue test has raised concerns.
A BCCI official stated, “He is unwell, and our medical team is closely monitoring his condition. We hope for a swift recovery,” as reported by the Indian Express.
Gill was absent from India’s training sessions on both Wednesday and Thursday. The team management initially considered it a common flu.
Gill has been India’s top run-scorer in ODIs this year, amassing 1230 runs at an impressive average of 72.35 and a strike rate of 105.03. He has delivered two centuries and a half-century in his last four ODIs, including two outstanding performances against Australia.
