Platelet Count Not Improving, Keeping Him Away from the Team

As per CricketBuzz, Gill’s platelet count had not shown significant improvement, which is why he did not travel with the team. Medical advice to the team management suggests that Gill won’t be able to travel until there is a substantial improvement in his platelet count. Earlier, BCCI had announced that instead of Gill, Ishan Kishan would open the innings in his absence. He went on to open without any discomfort.
