recent update, the BCCI stated, "Team India batter Shubman Gill will not be travelling with the team to Delhi on 9th October 2023. The opening batter who missed the team’s first fixture in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 against Australia in Chennai is set to miss the team’s next fixture against Afghanistan in Delhi on the 11th of October. He will stay back in Chennai and will be under the supervision of the medical team."

During Gill's absence in the World Cup opener against Australia, he was replaced by Ishan Kishan. Despite early hiccups, India managed to secure victory in that match, winning by six wickets. 

Kishan, along with K.L. Rahul and Virat Kohli, contributed significantly to the team's success with a match-winning 165-run partnership.

Shubman Gill has been in stellar form over the past year and boasts five One Day International (ODI) centuries to his name in 2023 alone. 

His batting prowess and consistency have made him a vital asset for the Indian team, and his absence will be keenly felt as India aims to reclaim the World Cup trophy after a 12-year hiatus.

Gill's health condition remains a concern for both the player and the team management, and fans will be anxiously awaiting updates on his recovery as India's World Cup journey continues.
