Shikhar Dhawan ruled out of the world cup 2019. the Indian team management decided to put Shikhar under observation but called in Rishabh pant from India as a stand by.
The team India has suffered a huge blow as opener Shikhar Dhawan is ruled out of the remaining of the tournament due to a fractured thumb. the opener suffered from hairline fracture during a match-winning knock against Australia at the oval. In the absence of Shikhar Dhawan kl Rahul had opened India's innings. He also impressed everyone by scoring important 57 runs and had a stand of 136 runs with Rohit Sharma for the first wicket partnership.
India would have only 13 layers to choose from against the match of Afghanistan. As bhuvneshwar Kumar sustained an injury during the match against Pakistan he is out for the next three games due to a hamstring niggle.
