WorlD Cup 2023: Shubman Gill Reaches Ahmedabad ahead of clash with Pakistan

Team India received a huge shot in the arm as soon as they landed in Ahmedabad on Thursday ahead of their big-ticket World Cup 2023 encounter against Pakistan on Saturday (October 14).

Shubman Gill, who missed the first two matches of this World Cup after testing positive for dengue fever, hit the nets for the first time in more than a week.

Gill was the only Indian cricketer who practised on Thursday in Ahmedabad as the rest of the team members took a day off after beating Afghanistan on Wednesday.

Gill had reached Ahmedabad on Wednesday night after boarding the flight from Chennai while the rest of the Indian cricketers reached Thursday morning.

Gill took throwdowns for about an hour at the Narendra Modi Stadium nets. While this is a great sign for Team India, there is still no clarity on whether he will be available for selection for the Pakistan match on Sunday.

Gill’s recovery has been way quicker than expected. He was discharged from a hospital in Chennai only on Monday night after being admitted on Sunday for a drop in platelet count.
