Huge blow to India! Dhawan ruled out of World Cup



In what has come in as shocking news for Indian cricket fans, Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out of the ongoing World Cup in England. Dhawan who suffered a thumb injury during his heroic innings of 117 against Australia on Sunday didn't field during the Australian chase and was replaced by Ravindra Jadeja. 

Dhawan suffered the blow on his thumb during the 9th over from Pat Cummins which later deflected from his thumb and hit his helmet. The absence of Dhawan could mean that KL Rahul will open the innings for India. In such a scenario, as per sources, either Rishab Pant of Shreyas Iyer might be flown in to England to replace the southpaw.  Another scenario that the selctors might be considering is giving Vijay Shankar a chance at number 4. However, Vijay's inexperience at number 4 and in English conditions make the situation unlikely. 

Following the injury on Sunday, Dhawan underwent a scan where it was revealed that his right thumb has been fractured and might take atleast 3 weeks to heal. 

India will be playing New Zealand in their next game on June 13th at Nottingham post which they have games against Pakistan, New Zealand, England, West Indies, Afghanistan and Srilanka lined up.
