Shikhar Dhawan has a fractured thumb

Shikhar Dhawan- the man for India in ICC events

After he went for a scan on Monday, the result showed that he had suffered a suspected fracture.

The left-handed batsman suffered the injury as a result of a nasty blow from a rising delivery by Australia paceman Nathan Coulter-Nile but still went on to complete his 17th one-day worldwide century. Dhawan is a crucial component in this line-up, especially considering his love affair with the ICC events. Dhawan became the third opening batsman after Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly to score at least three centuries in the World Cup.

In such a case, BCCI will not name a replacement.

According to India Today, KL Rahul is expected to open the innings with Rohit Sharma for rest of the tournament, followed by Dinesh Karthik or Vijay Shankar in the middle order.

According to the sources, Shikhar Dhawan's possible replacement could either be Shreyas Iyer or Rishabh Pant.

Bummed about #ShikharDhawan's exclusion for 3 weeks...the upcoming games won't be the same without him. The left-hander has scored six centuries in ICC tournaments.

Reports say that Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan has been all but ruled out of the World Cup due to an injury sustained on the thumb during the game against Australia.

Dhawan was struck on the thumb by a Pat Cummins delivery before going on to make 117 in his team's 36-run win against Australia at the weekend.
