World Cup 2023: Shubman Gill discharged from hospital, remains doubtful for IND vs PAK clash in Ahmedabad

Indian opener Shubman Gill was diagnosed with dengue ahead of the team's opening game in the World Cup against Australia. While he stayed in Chennai under medical supervision, it seems his participation will be in doubt even against Pakistan in Ahmedabad given the hospitalisation.

India batter Shubman Gill has reportedly been discharged from a Chennai hospital after being admitted due to dengue. Gill was sent to the Kaveri Hospital in Chennai when his platelet count dropped to 70,000. He reportedly took mandatory tests on Sunday night and got discharged on Monday evening.

"Shubman Gill was on drip at the Chennai team hotel for the last couple of days. However his platelet count dropped to 70,000 and as it is a case with dengue patients, once the count is below 100,000, you are admitted to a medical facility as a precautionary measure. He was admitted for all mandatory tests on Sunday night when India played Australia but by Monday evening was released," a BCCI source told PTI. 

As per a Cricbuzz report, Gill was under medical supervision of BCCI doctor Rizwan Khan and due to a low platelet count he was admitted to the Kaveri Hospital in the city where India played their first game against Australia on Sunday, October 8. The medical team advised Gill not to fly with a low platelet count. The update has put Gill's participation in jeopardy against Pakistan in Ahmedabad on Saturday, October 14 as recovery from fever to be match fit could take a bit of time.

The update came after the BCCI confirmed that Gill will remain unavailable for the Afghanistan clash in Delhi. "Team India batter Shubman Gill will not be travelling with the team to Delhi on 9th October 2023. The opening batter who missed the team's first fixture in the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2023 against Australia in Chennai is set to miss the team's next fixture against Afghanistan in Delhi on the 11th of October. He will stay back in Chennai and will be under the supervision of the medical team," the BCCI statement said.

Gill, who has been in tremendous form in ODIs in 2023 having scored 1230 runs scoring five centuries and given how the top-order collapsed against Australia in the tournament opener. India were 2/3 before Virat Kohli and KL Rahul stitched a 165-run stand for the fourth wicket to take India home. Gill's unavailability means that Ishan Kishan will get at least two games more at the top of the order, if not more.
