Recovering steadily from a bout of dengue fever, India opener Shubman Gill will be reaching Ahmedabad on Wednesday but still remains a doubtful starter for the marquee World Cup clash against Pakistan on Saturday.
Even as Gill reaches Ahmedabad later in the day, his teammates will be battling it out against Afghanistan at the Arun Jaitley Stadium here. “Gill is doing absolutely fine and is set to leave Chennai for Ahmedabad today. It is still not clear whether Gill will have a light training session at Motera on Thursday. His recovery has been fine but can’t really be sure if he can play against Pakistan,” a BCCI source said on condition of anonymity.
Gill has already missed the first two World Cup games — opener against Australia in Chennai and Wednesday’s game against Afghanistan.
