Shubman Gill Back For Pakistan Clash In World Cup?

Shubman Gill is on the way to full recuperation, yet his support in Saturday’s high-stakes game against Pakistan stays questionable. The 24-year-old opener, who has as of late recovered from Dengue fever, had a broad net meeting on Thursday morning. Be that as it may, it’s as yet muddled whether he will be considered fit to play in the marquee match

On Thursday, Gill showed up at the Narendra Modi Arena at around 11 AM and spent north of an hour there. He started with warm-up activities and afterward continued to batting practice on the grounds nearby the principal arena. The Gujarat Cricket Affiliation (GCA) organized the net meeting with six bowlers, notwithstanding a throwdown subject matter expert, for Gill, who spent about thirty minutes at the batting nets.

In the event that Gill doesn’t come to the XI on Saturday, it will be a misfortune for the group. In the new conflict against Pakistan during the Asia Cup last month in Colombo, he assumed a urgent part, forcefully taking on the dreaded Shaheen Shah Afridi right off the bat in the innings and scoring an agreeable 50 years. India got a reverberating triumph in that game, winning by 228 runs.

Gill’s platelet count had dropped to 70,000 last week and had to be admitted to a Chennai hospital for routine medical tests and was discharged after 24 hours.

It is understood that Gill, who is supremely fit, is expected to recover quicker compared to some of the others.

There is a school of thought that even if Gill is 70 percent fit, he could be more effective than a flashy Ishan Kishan but a bout of dengue weakens the body considerably and it would only be fair to allow the right-hander to be 100 percent fit before Bangladesh game
