The ODI World Cup has started. The first match was played between New Zealand and England. Which New Zealand won by 9 wickets. Team India has played its first match in the World Cup against Australia in Chennai. Before this match, Team India suffered a big blow. It now seems difficult for the team’s star batsman Shubman Gill to play his first match. Which is not good news for Team India. Gill is one of the most important players of Team India and if he is out of the playing XI, India may suffer a big loss.
Difficult to play due to this reason:
The Indian team is present in Chennai for its first match. Where Team India is participating in the nets practice session. The Indian team also practiced vigorously on Thursday. But during this time Shubman Gill was not seen. He was resting in the hotel itself. According to PTI reports, ever since Gill reached Chennai, he has had a high fever and is on complete rest. It has also been said in the reports that he will be tested today i.e. on Friday. Only after which any decision can be taken regarding his playing against Australia. It is believed that Gill is suffering from dengue. Generally, it takes about two weeks to recover from this disease. In such a situation, Gill may miss some more matches.
This player will get a chance:
If Gill does not play the first few matches in the World Cup, then Ishan Kishan can be given a chance in his place in the playing XI. Kishan is also in very good form like Gill. Although he has batted in the middle order for a long time. But he also has a lot of experience as an opener. In such a situation, in the absence of Gill, only Ishaan can be seen opening with Rohit Sharma. Shubman Gill has been in veritably good form this year. He’s the batsman who has scored the most runs and utmost centuries in ODIs for India this year. In such a situation, if Gill misses the first many matches, it can spoil Team India’s World Cup start.
