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.
