Team India’s opener Shubman Gill has been discharged from the hospital in Chennai. Gill is suffering from dengue. According to the report of cricket website Cricbuzz, Gill was admitted to Kauvery Hospital in Chennai on Monday morning. A team of doctors is keeping an eye on him under the supervision of Dr. Rizwan Khan of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
According to the report, Gill’s platelet count was not improving. This is the reason why he did not go to Delhi with the team. The team management has been given medical advice to avoid flying if platelet count is low. Earlier on Monday, BCCI had issued a statement confirming that Gill will not play in the match against Afghanistan.
According to reports, his platelet count had dropped to 90,000 per micro liter after dengue. Whereas for a men’s athlete, it should be between 1.5 lakh to 4.5 lakh per micro litre. Knowledgeable doctors believe that his platelet count may increase in the next two days, but there is little hope that he will become completely fit before October 14.
Still difficult to play against Pakistan
The match between India and Pakistan will be played on 14 October. There is less possibility of Gill playing in that match also. According to sources, if his health is fine, he can go directly to Ahmedabad.
Gill did not even play India’s first match against Australia due to dengue. In his place, Ishan Kishan opened the match. Was out without opening the account. BCCI had told 6 days ago that Shubman had high fever after reaching Chennai for the first match. When his tests were done, he was found to have dengue.
