Shikhar Dhawan ruled out of World Cup 2019 for 3 weeks due to a thumb injury
Shikhar Dhawan is a key player for India in ICC tournaments where he has 6 hundreds. In the 2015 World Cup, Dhawan had scored 2 hundreds. Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out of the 2019 Cricket World Cup for 3 weeks with a fractured thumb. He had been hit on his left thumb during India?s match against defending champions Australia at The Oval on this Sunday. Dhawan had sustained the injury on Sunday but he played an incredible match-winning knock of 117 runs (including 16 fours) against Australia. He had gone for a scan on Monday and the report reveals he has a fracture.
Shikhar Dhawan will not be able to play India?s upcoming matches against New Zealand, Pakistan, Afghanistan, West Indies and England - all these matches are scheduled to be played in June.
Shikhar Dhawan was named man-of-the-match for his one of the greatest innings and his injury is a huge blow to India who are the hot favourites to win the World Cup this year.
