‘ICC World Cup 2019’, Shikhar Dhawan ruled out for three weeks
India’s star opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 for at least three weeks due to a fractured thumb.
Shikhar was injured during India’s match against defending champions Australia at Oval in which he scored 117. His injury will be a major blow for India as the team will now be without one of its star batsmen.
Shikhar will be unavailable for India’s matches against New Zealand, Pakistan, West Indies, and England.
KL Rahul is most likely to replace Dhawan as India’s opening batsmen along with Rohit Sharma. Dinesh Karthik or Vijay Shankar expected to slot in the middle order.
