Shikhar Dhawan has been led out of the 2019 Cricket World Cup for 3 weeks with a cracked thumb . He had been hit to his left side thumb during India’s match against shielding champions Australia at The Oval on Sunday.
Dhawan had continued the damage on Sunday yet proceeded to score a match winning 117 against Australia. He had gone for an output on Monday and the report uncovers he has a break.
Shikhar Dhawan will therefore, not be able to play India’s upcoming matches against New Zealand, Pakistan, Afghanistan, West Indies and England – all these matches are scheduled to be played in June.
Shikhar Dhawan is a key player for India in ICC tournaments where he has 6 hundreds. In the 2015 World Cup, Dhawan had scored 2 hundreds.
In 2019, after a poor start against South Africa, Dhawan smashed 117 to set up a 36-run win for India.
As per sources, Shikhar Dhawan’s conceivable substitution in England could either be Shreyas Iyer or Rishabh Pant.
