Gill was batting on 79 off 65 when he walked off the field due to cramps, bringing his 93-run partnership for the second wicket with Virat Kohli to an end.
Gill was allowed to return to the crease due to Law 25.4.2 of MCC, which states that “If a batter retires because of illness, injury or any other unavoidable cause, that batter is entitled to resume his/her innings.”
However, if a batter goes off mid-innings due to any other reason than an injury or illness, they will not be allowed to return to resume their innings.
Gill though got to face just a ball on his return, with the right-handed batter managing to take just a single from it.
