In an unfortunate turn of events, India’s dynamic opener, Shubman Gill, may miss the upcoming World Cup match against Australia in Chennai on October 8 due to a battle with dengue fever. As a result, the team is likely to call upon Ishan Kishan to fill Gill’s shoes and open the innings alongside captain Rohit Sharma.
A Blow to India’s World Cup Campaign
The absence of Shubman Gill poses a significant challenge for India as they prepare to face Australia in a crucial World Cup encounter. Gill’s illness has cast doubt on his availability for the game, forcing the team management to rethink their strategy for the opening batting lineup.
Uncertain Times for Gill
Speaking about Gill’s condition, a BCCI official stated, “He’s under the weather, and the medical team is closely monitoring him. We are hoping he gets better soon. We will have to wait for more updates from the medical team.”
