Shubman Gill has been a well-known figure in the cricketing world; however, India’s decision to exclude him from the T20 World Cup 2024 squad sparked numerous discussions about his role in India’s T20 setup.

While Shubman Gill traveled to the United States with Team India, he has yet to be seen in the stadium supporting Rohit Sharma and Co. This contrasts with Rinku Singh, Avesh Khan, and Khaleel Ahmed, who were all present during the high-stakes India vs. Pakistan clash in New York.

Recent reports indicate that Shubman Gill and Avesh Khan will return home after the group stages of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024. Their roles were limited to the US leg to provide immediate backup in case of injuries to key players. However, inside sources suggest that the real reason for the Gujarat Titans skipper’s departure is due to ‘disciplinary issues.’

Adding to the drama, Shubman Gill has unfollowed Indian skipper Rohit Sharma on Instagram, further fueling speculation amidst these developments.

However, sources close to the young batter have confirmed that Shubman Gill’s early departure is not due to disciplinary issues. The decision was made because the team management does not require a backup opener for the remainder of the tournament.
