The situation of star opener Shubman Gill, who is now suffering dengue fever, has been clarified by Indian wicketkeeper Rohit Sharma. Concerns have been raised over Gill’s capacity to play in India’s opening match against Australia in Chennai on Sunday, October 8.
The anchor of the Indian batting order is Gill, who has been in outstanding form in 2023, especially in One-Day Internationals (ODIs), scoring an astounding 1230 runs and recording five magnificent hundreds. The possibility of his disappearance hangs menacingly, leaving the Men in Blue in the dark. Rohit, however, emphasised that the 24-year-old’s health came before any quick comeback to the pitch.

The India skipper expressed optimism about the team’s morale while the cricketing community impatiently awaits Gill’s health report. The Indian captain stated.
Rahul Dravid, the head coach of India, gave an update earlier and said Shubman’s health has been improving. He also noted that the medical staff must continuously monitor his status over the course of a critical 36-hour timeframe. Dravid claimed that the medical staff has not yet eliminated the India opener from consideration when asked about his prospective presence in the starting eleven.
