Big blow for India : Opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan ruled out after thumb fracture

London : Indian opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out of the ongoing World Cup tournament for three weeks due to a thumb fracture.

The left-handed batsman, who scored 117 off 109 balls against Australia and helped India to a massive total of 352 on the board, went through precautionary scans on Tuesday to determine the extent of injury on his swollen left thumb.

Dhawan looked in considerable pain throughout his innings after being hit by a rising delivery from Nathan Coulter-Nile.

The batsman then did not come out on the field at the end of India’s innings and Ravindra Jadeja fielded for the entire span of 50 overs.
