ICC World Cup 2019: Replacement of Shikhar Dhawan Announced

The Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan is ruled out of the tournament due to fracture in his thumb. That injury came during the match against Australia. In that match, Dhawan scored a brilliant century and grabbed the player of the match.

Now the wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant is ready to join the team as the replacement of Shikhar Dhawan.

A source said to TOI,“He’s as good as ruled out. It’s a huge blow. Once all the details on Dhawan’s injury are out, the team management will put out an official request for a replacement. And that replacement is going to be Pant. The injury is bad enough to ask for a replacement.”
