Shikhar Dhawan ruled out and the replacement to be announced soon.

Shikhar Dhawan got injured against Australia while batting and the injury became a nightmare for the opener batsman. He is having a hair-line- fracture on his left hand’s thumb.

Shikhar Dhawan will not be available for the selection for the next 3 weeks. According to the sources, Rishabh Pant is going to England as a cover of Shikhar Dhawan and this will be announced soon.

Rishabh Pant was ignored in the selection of the World Cup squad despite a good form in the IPL for Delhi Capitals. After the exit of Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul will be doing the opening duty with Rohit Sharma in the upcoming matches.

It doesn’t matter who will be replacing him as an opener but his exit is a huge loss for Team India as he is in a sublime form and scored a brilliant century against Australia with his injured thumb.

As if now, KL Rahul will be moving to the top order and any one of Vijay Shankar and Jadeja will be getting the game in the future matches of the world cup.

“We’ve got Mitch Marsh flying over just as a bit of a precaution. He was meant to fly over with the Australia A side on Friday. He’s just coming a couple days early as a bit of precaution, if Stoinis doesn’t recover quick enough or doesn’t respond to treatment well enough over the next few days”, he added.

He finished as the 8th highest run-scorer and the fourth-highest wicket taker in the tournament as India lifted the 50-over World Cup after 28 years at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai on April 2, 2011.

After showcasing the fighting skills he had displayed on the field, Yuvraj fought against the disease and successfully staged a recovery.In 2012, he was back to playing for India, inspiring millions with his never-say-die attitude.

Indian veteran batsman MS Dhoni scored a brilliant century against Bangladesh in the 2nd Warm-Up game.
