“Shubhman has had high fever since landing in Chennai. His tests are being done. He will have tests on Friday and a call will be taken on his participation in opening game,” a BCCI source privy to team developments told PTI on the condition of anonymity.

Currently, he is down with a fever, a classic symptom of dengue fever.
Dengue cases are prevalent in the country right now. Also known as break-bone fever, it takes 1-2 weeks to recover from dengue. While in many cases, it is asymptomatic, in cases where it is symptomatic, the most common symptoms are high fever, headache, body aches, nausea, and rash. Dengue signs appear 4-10 days after the infection.
The recovery time for dengue is important. Many people take a longer time to get back to their regular routine depending on the intensity of the symptoms they had during the infection.
“Let’s not jump the gun. If it’s normal viral fever, he could play on antibiotics but it’s completely the medical team’s call,” the source told PTI.
