Shikhar Dhawan doubtful for India’s next two games

Shikhar Dhawan doubtful for India’s next two games”

In a major blow to the Indian team, opener Shikhar Dhawan, on Tuesday was ruled out for about two to three weeks, according to reports with a left thumb fracture.

While official confirmation from the BCCI is awaited, broadcasters Star Sports have confirmed that Dhawan will definitely be sitting out of India's next clash against New Zealand on Thursday in Nottingham.

Dhawan was injured during India's match against Australia in which he scored 117.

If Dhawan is indeed ruled out, he will miss nearly all of the group stage matches including the ones against New Zealand, Pakistan, Afghanistan, West Indies and England.

Designated standbys Rishabh Pant and Ambati Rayudu are in contention to replace Dhawan. Dhawan was hit on the thumb by a rising delivery from pacer Nathan Coulter-Nile during the India-Australia match on June 9. However, as a precautionary measure, he did not come out to field and was taken for scans on Monday.

In Dhawan's absence, India are likely to open the innings with Rohit Sharma and KLRahul, which would mean the Virat Kohli-led side would have to, once again, make a decision on the number four slot, which was, at the moment, was filled by Rahul. His innings was pivotal in India reaching a 350-plus total. He also commented on India's recent losses to Australia before the tournament and said that the team believes in performing well on the day that matters, without worrying about what happened in the past.
