Shubman Gill made his much-anticipated return to the Indian cricket team’s starting XI. After being sidelined due to illness, Gill is poised to make his ODI Cricket World Cup debut at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Saturday. His absence was a result of dengue fever, causing him to miss India’s initial two matches against Australia and

Afghanistan. Replacing Ishan Kishan in the lineup, Gill will open the batting alongside skipper Rohit Sharma. Following the coin toss, Rohit Sharma disclosed the playing XI for the India-Pakistan encounter and expressed his sympathy for Ishan Kishan, who was left out of the team.

Gill is back in place of Ishan, unfortunate for Ishan to miss out; I feel for him. He stepped up when we needed him. Gill has been a special player for us over the past year or so, especially at this ground, and we wanted him back,” Rohit commented when discussing Gill’s inclusion in the playing XI.

In the decision-making process, Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to field.

We will bowl first; it doesn’t get bigger than this. The atmosphere is fantastic. Many of us will experience something truly extraordinary. The pitch is favorable; it’s unlikely to change much. Dew could be a significant factor, so, keeping that in mind, we want to bowl first. We aim to consistently strive for excellence. In this tournament, maintaining a relaxed atmosphere within the team is of utmost importance,” noted the Indian cricket team’s captain.

India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma(c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul(w), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj.

Pakistan (Playing XI): Abdullah Shafique, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam(c), Mohammad Rizwan(w), Saud Shakeel, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf.
