Gill on Monday was named in India's ODI and T20I squads for the tour of New Zealand.
He was also included in the squad for the Test series against Bangladesh, but didn't find a place in the ODI squad.
Hardik Pandya was named captain for the New Zealand T20Is, while Shikhar Dhawan will lead the side in ODIs.
Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli were among the senior players who were rested for the tour.
However, the two players will return to the squad in the ODIs and Tests against Bangladesh with Rohit resuming his leadership role.
