Shaw missed the team’s last three games and after the win against Rajasthan Royals on Wednesday, DC skipper Rishabh Pant said the Mumbaikar may be suffering from typhoid fever.
Shaw, who has had a fever and has been hospitalized, last played against Lucknow Super Giants on May 1.
“I don’t know his diagnosis exactly,” Watson told the Grade Cricketer.
“But he’s just had this underlying fever for the past few weeks, which they really had to get to the bottom of to figure out exactly what it was.
“It doesn’t look great for him to be available in the last few games, which is a real shame as he is an incredibly skilled young batter who often takes down the best bowlers in the world.” “It’s a big loss for us not to have him. He’s been under the weather for the last few weeks. Hopefully he’ll be back to full health soon, but unfortunately it won’t be in time for the minimum of the last two games we’ve played.” to have.” Shaw himself had shared an Instagram post from his hospital bed, in which he said he hopes to be back soon.
