Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan could be out of the World Cup due to a suspected hairline fracture of the thumb. Dhawan had injured his thumb while batting against Australia in India’s previous match. He went on to score a hundred but did not field. News agency PTI is reporting that Dhawan could take up to a month to recover.
While official confirmation from the BCCI is awaited, broadcasters Star Sports have confirmed that Dhawan will definitely be sitting out of India's next clash against New Zealand on Thursday in Nottingham.
