Shubman Gill, who had to skip the first two matches against Australia and Afghanistan due to dengue, was seen practising in the nets for over an hour in preparation for the highly-anticipated match with Pakistan, scheduled for Saturday, October 14 at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.
Earlier on, Team India’s captain, Rohit Sharma, confirmed that Shubman Gill has made a complete recovery from dengue and is ready to participate in the upcoming match against Pakistan.
The inclusion of Shubman Gill in Team India for the Pakistan match is set to be a game-changer, given his remarkable success as one of Ahmedabad’s premier run-scorers and his position as India’s top ODI run-getter for the year.
Team India commenced their World Cup 2023 campaign with a thumping win against Australia, following it up with another victory over Afghanistan. Their focus is now on securing a third consecutive win as they prepare to face Pakistan on October 14 in Ahmedabad.
