Shikhar Dhawan Ruled Out of World Cup for 3 Weeks

LONDON: India’s star opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out of the ICC World Cup 2019 for three weeks due to a fractured thumb.

Shikhar had been hit on his left thumb during India’s match against defending champions Australia at The Oval on Sunday but went on to score a match-winning 117.

Shikhar Dhawan will not be able to play India’s upcoming matches against New Zealand, Pakistan, Afghanistan, West Indies and England.

KL Rahul is most likely to open with Rohit Sharma with Dinesh Karthik or Vijay Shankar likely to slot in the middle order.
