Shubman Gill Helth Update: Has the Fever Subsided? Will He Be Back on the Field? Rohit Provides an Update
Shubman Gill Helth Update: Team India suffered a major setback before the start of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 campaign. Shubman Gill is suffering from dengue. Captain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid are under a lot of pressure before starting their cup campaign against Australia on October 8. However, the team’s star opener is ill, but India’s coach and captain are reluctant to give up right now. Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya was injured while batting in the nets on Thursday. However, Rohit said that Hardik is fully fit. And looking forward to playing against the Aussies.
Rohit had come to the press conference before playing against the Aussies. Naturally, Shubman was asked about his medical update. Like Dravid, Rohit replied, “Shubman is not 100 percent fit yet. I have a fever. So weak. But the good news is that he doesn’t have any injuries. He is being looked after by the medical staff every moment. So we want to give him a chance to recover and get on the field. Let’s see how Shubman goes for the next few hours. So I don’t agree with calling it ‘ruled out’ right now.”
However, while Dravid and Rohit are playing defensively, the updates on Shubman’s health condition from within the BCCI are not at all comforting. “Shubman is not in good health and seems unlikely to play at least two matches. ”
Earlier, Dravid had said about the health condition of the young opener of the team, “Shubman is much better than before. Our medical team is always taking care of him. The match is still 36 hours away. So I will decide after looking at all aspects.”
If Shubman is ruled out in the first match, it is going to be a big blow for the Indian camp. If he doesn’t play in the end, Ishan Kishan could be opened. The team management has even thought of KL Rahul.
This year has been great. India’s young opener has already scored 1230 runs in 20 ODIs this year. The average is 72.35. Strike rate 105.03. He also has 5 centuries and 5 half-centuries. Meanwhile, he has scored 1864 runs in 35 matches in his ODI career. The average is 66.10. Strike rate 102.84. He also has 6 centuries and 9 half-centuries. Most runs against New Zealand. It goes without saying that the team management will rely on such good quality in the Cup war.
