Accordingly, the cricketer is still not playing and going by pacer Spencer Johnson's update, the middle-order batter might just get fit in time for their next clash against Delhi Capitals.

"We Will bowl first," Shubman Gill said after winning the toss. "In case rain is in play, you want to chase things down. Not easy to set up a playing XI when your main players are injured. Couple of changes - Matthew Wade comes in for Kane. Manohar comes in for Sharath. In past couple of games we were in brilliant position. It's just about finishing the crunch situations. Batting part is easy. When I'm batting I don't think about captaincy. While captaining, you want to give players confidence."
