Star Indian Opener Tests Positive for Dengue, Ishan Kishan is Likely to Open the Innings for India in the First Match

The World Cup 2023 has raised its curtain. On October 5, England and New Zealand faced each other in the first game. In that match, New Zealand just snatched the first win from the opponent. In the inaugural match, fans witnessed an excellent match. India will start their World Cup journey on October 8 against Australia in Chennai. The team has arrived in the city. But the Indian team received bad news just a few days before their first match.

What happened in Team India?

Ahead of the World Cup, the Indian team is in great form. They won the Asia Cup by 10 wickets. After that, India and Australia played a three-match ODI series on Indian soil. India won the series by a 2-1 margin. Every player is in good form. They are trying to give their best. 

But this time, team India received bad news. Star Indian opener Shubman Gill is likely to miss the inaugural match of India against Australia. It is heard that Gill has tested positive for dengue. He didn’t attend Team India’s practice session in Chennai. In the absence of Gill, Ishan Kishan might open the innings against Australia along with skipper Rohit Sharma.

Outstanding records of Gill and Ishan:

Shubman Gill is India’s one of the most talented openers in recent times. Currently, he is having his dream year. In the IPL, he made 890 runs and secured the orange cap. He is also the leading run-scorer of India in ODI this year. He scored 1230 runs. He has a batting average of 72.53 and a strike rate of 105.03.

 In the recent series against Australia, Shubman Gill scored an outstanding century. He scored 104 runs in that match. In the first match of that series, he scored a magnificent half-century.

Ishan Kishan is likely to take Gill’s place in the match against Australia. He also has an impressive record. This young star is one of the best players of Mumbai Indians in IPL. He is showing his class and ability in the national team also. He is one of the responsible players of the team in recent times. 

He played a few match-winning knocks for India. As an opener, Ishan scored three half-centuries being an opener. He played a knock of 82 runs against Pakistan in the Asia Cup this year. He opened for India more than twenty times and scored 915 runs.

Before starting the World Cup journey, it was a setback for India. Gill was an automatic choice for the team as an opener. He played some match-winning innings for the team. But Ishan Kishan is also another talent of the Indian team. He also opened the innings several times. A huge responsibility will be on his shoulders to take India to a good position in the World Cup.
