Shikhar Dhawan Ruled Out of New Zealand & Pakistan Clashes With Hairline Fracture

Shikhar Dhawan Ruled Out of New Zealand & Pakistan Clashes With Hairline Fracture”

Young wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant will be joining the Indian team as cover for the injured Shikhar Dhawan in England as they prepare for their next match against New Zealand on Thursday.

Indian cricketer Shikhar Dhawan had suffered an injury on his thumb while batting against Australia.

Reports emerged on 11th June, which were later confirmed by the BCCI, that a thumb injury, which the southpaw opener suffered during India's encounter with Australia, has ruled him out for at least two matches, those against New Zealand and Pakistan. He was hit on the left thumb, courtesy a raising delivery bowled by the Aussie pacer Nathan Coulter Nile. Dhawan was clearly struggling after receiving the blow but had gone on to score a sublime ton. Reports earlier suggested that the southpaw could miss nearly 3 weeks of action. However, he didn't come out to field and after undergoing scans, a hairline fracture was revealed. However, latest report from Cricbuzz suggests Shikhar Dhawan will remain under observation. And Sanjay Bangar has now stated that any call on Dhawan can be taken only after 10-12 days. He also revealed that wicket-keeper-batsman Rishabh Pant has been called in as a back-up in case Dhawan can not regain fitness in time.

India will definitely be desperate to see Dhawan recovering as quickly as possible. Dhawan is not only in good form at the moment but has also a fantastic track record in the ICC tournaments.

Stay tuned for latest updates and in-depth analysis of news from India and around the world!

Thus, in his absence, it will be India's present no.4 batsmen- KL Rahul who will most likely open the innings alongside Rohit Sharma.
