Big Blow to India as injured Dhawan out of World Cup

Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out of the ICC Cricket World Cup after he suffered a thumb injury during his knock against Australia

Shikhar was in terrific form in that game as he scored a 109 ball 117 studded with 16 fours and 1 six. This is a big jolt to India's World Cup campaign as he has proved to be India's go-to man in big ICC Events. The Indian cricket team will face New Zealand on June 13 in their third match of the Cricket World Cup 2019. India have won both their matches comprehensively and will be looking to continue their winning streak.

 

The left-hander did not field at all during Australia’s run chase and was seen in the dressing room with an ice-pack on his left thumb. Scans on Monday revealed a fracture. It will be interesting to see who will replace Shikhar Dhawan as an opener in the next game. Most probably KL Rahul will fit into the role of an opener.
