India’s World Cup campaign was a big blow Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out from the tournament due to a thumb injury. That is why Rishabh Pant’s path has become clear. Dhawan was told that he will recover from injuries for three weeks, but it is clear that he will not be able to recover. So he has withdrawn from the rest of the tournament.
BCCI sources said this to the media. “Dhawan is not fit to play World Cup but he is withdrawing from the World Cup,” the sources said.
The Indian team, which started strongly in the World Cup tournament by winning matches against the strong teams of South Africa and Australia, has been shocked. Left-arm opener Shikhar Dhawan has been injured in a scintillating century against Australia.

Shikhar Dhawan scored a brilliant century in the match against Australia. Because of the big partnerships he had with Rohit Sharma and Captain Virat Kohli, the Indian team could have reached more than three hundred. However, during the knock, a bouncy ball from Pat Cummins was hit on the thumb of his right thigh. He was unable to reach the field due to injury.
