As per the report, Shubman Gill could be doubtful for the opening match between India and Australia

The worry of the Indian cricket team before their opening World Cup game against Australia has been compounded by the health issues of in-form Shubman Gill, and the batsman is a doubtful starter for the campaign match of the team on Sunday. Ishan Kishan could be in line to open in case Gill is ruled out. Gill, who has been India's most prolific batter in ODIs in recent times, is reportedly down with a high fever and will be tested for dengue on Friday before a final call is made on the matter.

As per the statement of the BCCI on the condition of anonymity, "Shubhman has had a high fever since landing in Chennai. His tests are being done. He will have tests on Friday, and a call will be taken on his participation in the opening game.”
