Shubman Gill might not have much time to prepare for India’s game against Pakistan on the 14 of this month in Ahmedabad. Before the India-Pakistan match, Gill’s return is in doubt. His platelet count decreased to 90,000 per microliter after contracting dengue. Doctors believe it is unlikely that Gill will return to match physical fitness before the India-Pakistan game.
As it could be more beneficial to feature him there, Gill will likely return in the Bangladesh match. Indian captain Rohit Sharma has stated that Gill’s health is a top priority. Gill might need to wait a few more days before making his ODI World Cup debut, and India will have to get by with Ishan Kishan for the time.

“Easing him back is the logical course of action. There is a five-day break after India’s game against Pakistan, so it might be wiser to match Shubman Gill up with Bangladesh on the nineteen of this month,” according to a source.
Shubman Gill’s platelet count dropped to 90,000 per microliter
Shubman Gill might be up against the clock to be ready for India’s match against Pakistan on 14 (October) in Ahmedabad. A healthy male athlete should have between 1.5 lakh and 4.5 lakh platelets per microliter of blood, but sources claim that after contracting dengue, his platelet count decreased to 90,000 per microliter.
Gill’s return is questionable before the India-Pakistan game
Although Gill may practically heal, and his platelet count could rise over the next two days, doctors in the know believe it is highly doubtful that he will return to match physical fitness before the India- Pakistan game of the World Cup.
Shubman Gill will return in the Bangladesh match
“Easing him again will be the most appropriate course of action. It could be more beneficial to feature him against Bangladesh since there is a five-day gap following India’s match against Pakistan,” according to a source.
Rohit Sharma: Gill’s health is a top priority
Even though Gill’s health is a top priority, Indian captain Rohit Sharma stated he wouldn’t rush him back before the game against Australia. Given the circumstances, Gill might need to wait a few more days before making his ODI World Cup debut, and India will have to get by for the time being with Ishan Kishan.
Shubhman Gill is in Chennai
Shubman Gill, the team’s opener who reportedly has dengue and has remained in Chennai under the care of the medical staff, was not with the Indian team when they landed here for their upcoming match against Afghanistan on Wednesday.
The Indian team’s only goal against the Afghans will be to increase their net run rate and maintain their competitive advantage. More shaving will get done to the center pitch, which will see action on Wednesday. The field won’t dry out here in the autumn weather.
