Team India has secured a significant lead ahead of their World Cup 2023 match against Pakistan on October 14. Shubman Gill, who missed the opening two games due to dengue fever, has returned to the nets for the first time in over a week. Gill trained in Ahmedabad and participated in throwdowns at the Narendra Modi Stadium nets for an hour.
Despite Gill’s speedy recovery, it remains unclear if he will be suitable for selection for the match against Pakistan. Regarding his participation in India’s match against Bangladesh (October 19) in Pune, there are no longer any open questions. Gill’s batting performance on Thursday raised the possibility of playing against Pakistan on Saturday.
World Cup 2023: Shubman Gill challenges every prediction with an incredible recovery and bats for an hour
For an hour, Shubman Gill took part in throwdowns at the Narendra Modi Stadium nets. Even though this is excellent news for Team India, it is still unknown if he can play in the match against Pakistan on Saturday.
Shubman Gill hits the net for an hour
As soon as Team India touched down in Ahmedabad on Thursday, they acquired an enormous push ahead of their crucial World Cup 2023 match against Pakistan on Saturday (October 14). Shubman Gill, who missed the opening two World Cup games after testing positive for dengue fever, hits the net for the first time in over a week.
Shubman Gill arrived in Ahmedabad on Wednesday night
After defeating Afghanistan on Wednesday, only Indian cricketer Gill trained on Thursday in Ahmedabad while the rest of the team took the day off. The rest of the Indian cricketers arrived in Ahmedabad on Thursday morning, while Gill arrived Wednesday night after leaving Chennai.
Gill participated in throwdowns at the Narendra Modi Stadium nets for an hour. Even though this is fantastic news for Team India, it is still unclear if he will be suitable for selection for the match against Pakistan on Saturday.
The speedy recovery of Gill
The speed of Gill’s recovery surpassed expectations. He was taken to a hospital in Chennai on Sunday due to a drop in platelet count, and he had to wait until Monday night. The average recovery time from dengue and readiness for physical activity is at least 10 to 12 days.
Will Shubman Gill participate in the 2023 World Cup match between Pakistan and India?
The doctor for the Indian team, Rizwan, is keeping a close eye on his health. However, the fact that Gill got permission to play for nearly an hour as quickly as Thursday indicates that his recovery is progressing as planned. There are no longer any questions about his attendance in India’s game against Bangladesh (October 19) in Pune.
Gill gets scheduled to play that match with seven days left to go. His batting performance on Thursday raised the possibility that we might even see him play against Pakistan on Saturday.
On October 4, shortly after the team arrived in Chennai, Gill reportedly became ill with a high fever and did not accompany the team to Delhi for India’s match against Afghanistan.
