Shocking! Injured Shikhar Dhawan ruled out of World Cup 2019, media reports

Shikhar Dhawan- the man for India in ICC events

Shikhar Dhawan

Shikhar Dhawan is likely to miss India's next two matches, against New Zealand and Pakistan, after picking up a suspected hairline fracture on his left thumb. The star cricketer has been reportedly ruled out for three weeks but will remain in England and join the side immediately after recovery. He had scored 2 hundreds in the last edition of the World Cup in 2015.

Dhawan's World Cup was thrown into disarray owing to the thumb injury which he picked up in India's 36-run win over Australia on Sunday.

Dhawan was hit on his left thumb by a delivery from Nathan Coulter-Nile early in his innings and needed medical attention.

He was also active in the world of cinema; he made his acting and screenwriting debut in a Kannada movie " Samskara " in 1970. Karnad's plays mined narratives from Indian history and mythology to comment on contemporary social and political issues.

He batting bearing the pain and went through a scan later on to determine the extent of injury. The Indian management now faces a dilemma: if they think Dhawan can recover in time for the knockouts, they can't name a replacement for him in the squad of 15.

It was Dhawan's sixth hundred in an ICC event and the first World Cup hundred made by an Indian batsman against Australia since 1999.

India have not yet named a replacement, but it's safe to say Dhawan won't play against the Black Caps at Trent Bridge, which starts on Thursday night (NZT). And this is a big reason why they are the first two centurions for India in the World Cup and why the team have convincingly won both their matches so far.
