Shubman Gill Likely to Miss Afghanistan Match in ICC Cricket World Cup 2023

Shubman Gill, India’s opening batsman, may miss the upcoming match against Afghanistan in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023. Gill, an important member of India’s batting lineup, is recovering after testing positive for dengue fever just before the key match against Australia. Unfortunately, this forced him to miss that match, which took place in Chennai.

The next challenge on India’s World Cup journey is a showdown against Afghanistan scheduled to be held at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on October 11th, a Wednesday. In the absence of Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan is given the responsibility of opening the innings alongside Rohit Sharma. Kishan has showcased his batting prowess in various formats and is known for his aggressive style of play, which could add a new dimension to the team’s approach.

A source from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) informed ANI, “Shubman Gill is recovering, and he will be traveling with the team to Delhi. He will be with the team and is not likely to go to his home in Chandigarh for rest. We hope that he will be back on the field before the match against Pakistan, and playing against Afghanistan will depend on his next medical report.”

Shubman Gill’s absence from the lineup is undoubtedly a significant blow for India. In the opening match against Australia, both openers, Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma, were dismissed for ducks, highlighting the importance of Gill’s presence at the top of the order. Gill holds the prestigious second position in the latest ICC ODI Batsman Rankings, a testament to his exceptional batting form. Cricket fans all over the country are praying for Shubman Gill’s quick recovery.
