Shubman Gill was unable to open in India's second innings after he sustained an injury on his right elbow during Day 2 of the second Test match against New Zealand, at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday.

Gill suffered a blow to his right elbow while fielding in the first innings. He was hit by a shot from Henry Nicholls, while fielding at short leg.

"Update: Shubman Gill suffered a blow to his right elbow while fielding in the first innings. He has not recovered completely and hence not taken the field as a precautionary measure," informed BCCI in a statement.

India were comfortably placed on 69/0 at stumps on Day 2, to stretch their lead to 332.
