Shikhar Dhawan ruled out of #CWC19, Rishabh Pant named as replacement

In an official announcement, Sunil Subramaniam, shared that Shikhar Dhawan has a fracture on the base of his first metacarpal on his left hand.

The Indian Team Manager further stated, "Following several specialist opinions, he will remain in cast until mid-July...which rules him out of ICC World Cup 2019."

Gabbar's injury comes as a heavy blow to Team India, especially if we consider his spectacular performances in ICC events. We wish our southpaw a speedy recovery and hope to see the swashbuckling opener back in action soon.

Rishabh Pant, who had been called by the Indian Team as a stand-by before India's encounter against the Kiwis, has been named as a replacement for Shikhar Dhawan. BCCI has sent in the request to ICC for approval.

Our young wicketkeeper-batsman could soon get his big break in CWC19 and will be keen to make the most of any opportunity he gets in the marquee event.
