Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out of world cup for three weeks because of a thumb injury. Shikhar Dhawan was injured during the match between India and Australia. Now, he will not be able to play several upcoming world cup matches.
Now, the question is, who will play in place of Shikhar Dhawan? According to experts, there are two players Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer, any one of them could get a place in the team. Rishabh Pant is a great player and played well in last IPL, but he has a lack of experience in international matches that is why he was not selected for the world cup 2019.
Shreyas Iyer also played well in the IPL, he was the captain of Delhi Capitals and under his captancy, Delhi Capital qualified for the Playoff first time, there is the chance of selection of Shreyas Iyer, but we will have to wait till the announcement of BCCI.
India’s victory in the World Cup match against Australia on Sunday, Dhawan was bowled by fast bowler Nathan Collar Nile, but he played despite the pain. Despite a lot of pain, Dhawan played 117 off 109 balls. Dhawan, however, did not get to fielding due to injury and Ravindra Jadeja replaced his 50 overs.
