New Delhi. The One Day World Cup being hosted by India has started. In the first match, New Zealand started the tournament with a victory by defeating defending champion England by 9 wickets. Meanwhile, now a bad news has come for Indian fans. A star batsman of Team India may be out of the first match against Australia.
Doubt on this player’s play
Team India has to start the World Cup 2023 from October 8 with a match against Australia. Before this, disappointing news has emerged for both the Indian fans and the team. The team’s star batsman Shubhman Gill has been found dengue positive. According to media reports, it is difficult for left-handed batsman Shubman Gill to play in the match against Australia. Let us tell you that he is in Chennai and his treatment is to be done there. However, there has been no official confirmation yet regarding playing in the match against Australia. There may be an update regarding this after investigation on Friday.
Gill is at number-2 in ODI rankings
Let us tell you that Shubman Gill is at number-2 in the ODI rankings. He is currently one of the most lethal batsmen of Team India. Gill’s ODI career has been excellent so far. He has scored 1230 runs in 20 matches played so far. He also has a double century in his name. In such a situation, his not playing in the match against Australia can prove to be a setback for the team.
If Gill does not play then who will open?
If Shubman Gill is unable to play against Australia due to illness, then the big question for Team India is who will open with Rohit Sharma. However, the team has opening batsmen in the form of KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan, but it remains to be seen what happens. At present, an update is yet to come regarding Gill also.
