Will Shubman Gill play on October 14 in the India vs. Pakistan World Cup 2023? Here’s what we do know. The news that opener Shubman Gill would play in the pivotal World Cup 2023 match against Pakistan on October 14 has made headlines. After being diagnosed with dengue, Gill missed the final roster for two key games against Australia and Afghanistan. As a result, he was hospitalised in Chennai due to a drop in his platelet count.

There was a very slim likelihood that Gill would be available for the Pakistan match up until Tuesday. However, he was released from the hospital and arrived in Ahmedabad on Thursday morning to participate in the practise session, his first since becoming ill more than a week earlier.

In video broadcast by Star Sports, Gill appeared to be in a good mood before to the afternoon’s taxing practise session. He was joined by throwdown expert Nuwan Seneviratne and Team India physio Kamlesh. He batted against a few net bowlers and accepted throwdowns from Seneviratne as well.

The team management is anticipated to make a decision on Gill’s inclusion in the team, which would be his first match in the World Cup 2023, when he participates in another full-fledged practise session on Friday evening with the other Indian cricket players.

Hopes for Gill’s comeback for the important game at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Motera have increased following his training session. But analysts continue to have some doubts regarding his participation in the game tomorrow.

Sunil Gavaskar, a former captain of India and legendary batsman, has asked the team administration to exercise caution in treating Gill’s recuperation. If the youthful opener is unavailable for India’s match against Pakistan, he remarked, the squad shouldn’t panic.

Shubman Gill would know for sure if he could bat for a sustained period of time in the high-pressure game, according to Gavaskar.

“Well, it depends on tomorrow (Friday), I suppose. Today, he had a net. The most important factor will be how his body holds up. If he is fit, he will recognise it for himself. In this situation, there is no such thing as hiding. If you get to bat first, you might be able to excuse your absence from the game by claiming to be injured. However, as a hitter, you are not doing your side any favours if you are unable to bat for 40 overs because you lack the strength or you may have a slight weakness, Gavaskar told India Today.
