In a massive blow for Team India ,  Opener Shikhar Dhawan, has been ruled out of the World Cup for three weeks due to a thumb fracture. The India opener underwent precautionary scans today which confirmed a fracture.

Dhawan was the  hero of India’s win over Australia in the World Cup ,  apparently played through pain after being hit on the left thumb by a rising delivery from  Pat Cummins .

He looked in considerable pain but carried on to score 117 off 109 balls.

However, Dhawan didn’t take the field due to the injury and Ravindra Jadeja fielded in his place for the entire 50 overs.

With Dhawan out, skipper Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri will have to re- work their plans and  decide who will open the innings with Rohit Sharma .
