Shikhar Dhawan Replaced By Rishab Pant After Being Ruled Out

Indian explosive opener Shikhar Dhawan, who injured his left thumb during the match against Australia has been ruled out of the ICC World Cup 2019. The left-hander batsman got injured when Australian fast-bowler Pat Cummins delivered a bouncer against him.

Shikhar did not come out to field after his batting innings and also missed India’s next 2 games against New Zealand and arch-rivals Pakistan. Although, India’s fixture against New Zealand had abandoned due to heavy rains.

Pant was called to fly England as he was named as official replacement of Shikhar Dhawan  after the team management decided to wait on Shikhar’s recovery. As a consequence, Rishabh Pant, whose ommission from the squad had kicked up a storm, has got the big break.

Rishabh Pant had scored impressive tons during the test tours of England and Australia. He even score impressie runs in IPL last month.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli said on Dhawan’s recovery, “He’s gonna be in plaster for a couple of weeks and then we’ll assess where he stands. Hopefully, he heals quickly and should be available for league games and semifinals”.
