Dengue test done on Friday

Shubman Gill, India’s most prolific batsman in ODIs in recent times, is reportedly suffering from high fever and will be tested for dengue on Friday before a final decision is taken on the matter. If Gill misses the first few matches then Ishan Kishan can open the innings with Rohit Sharma. Some experts believe that KL Rahul is also fit to open and Ishaan can be kept in the middle order.

Shubman Gill is suffering from high fever

A BCCI source aware of the development told news agency PTI, ‘Shubman has high fever since landing in Chennai. Their tests are being conducted. He will undergo tests on Friday and a decision will be taken on his participation in the opening game.

After recovering from dengue, it usually takes 7-10 days for a player to become match-fit again. If there is a significant drop in platelet count, it may take longer. Although Gill may be a non-starter against Australia, there is a high possibility that he will not be able to play against Afghanistan (October 11) and Pakistan (October 14) if the recovery takes more time.

Shubman Gill is not confirmed to have dengue.

The source said, ‘Don’t be hasty. If it is a normal viral fever, he can take antibiotics, but it is completely the decision of the medical team. Gill has scored 1,200 runs this year. He recently made a successful opening stand with captain Rohit Sharma. If he remains absent for a long time then it can be a big blow for the Indian team.
