Shubman Gill Updates: Doubtful for Australia Clash After Falling Ill
The coach of the Indian cricket team, Rahul Dravid, has provided an update on star opener Shubman Gill’s health, stating that Gill still has a chance of playing in India’s ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup opener against Australia.
Gill had been dealing with an illness leading up to the match against Australia in Chennai on Sunday. However, Dravid mentioned that Gill’s condition has improved, and he has not been ruled out of the game.
“He’s certainly feeling better today,” Rahul Dravid mentioned on Friday. “The medical team is monitoring him on a daily basis. We have 36 hours before the match, so we’ll see what decision they take. He’s certainly feeling better today.”
When questioned further about Shubman Gill‘s availability for the match against Australia, Rahul Dravid emphasized that Gill is still in contention to play.
“The medical team hasn’t ruled him out as yet,” Dravid clarified. “We’ll keep monitoring him on a day-to-day basis. We’ll see how he feels in the next couple of days.”
If Gill is unable to play against Australia, Ishan Kishan, another young talent, might partner with captain Rohit Sharma at the top of India’s batting order. Additionally, the experienced KL Rahul remains an alternative option.
