The Indian cricket team has won the first match of the 2023 World Cup by defeating Australia, but the team isn't yet operating at full strength. The young star opener of team India, Shubman Gill, who reportedly contracted dengue a few days ago, remains unavailable because of his health issue. The Board of Control for Cricket in India has already ruled him out of India's second match of the tournament against Afghanistan. In fact, it has now been reported that Gill has been hospitalized in Chennai owing to a low platelet count.
It has now been reported that the progress of Gill is being closely observed by the medical team of BCCI. But, at present, he is in no position to make a comeback. His platelet count has been low for a while, and such a situation prompted the management to shift him to a hospital in Chennai.
As per a report, Gill's platelet count has been low, which is the reason why the BCCI decided not to allow him to accompany his teammates to Delhi for the Afghanistan clash.
As per the statement of BCCI on Monday, "Team India batter Shubman Gill will not be traveling with the team to Delhi on October 9, 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.”
