Shikhar Dhawan- the man for India in ICC events

Black Caps bowlers can forget about planning to bowl to Indian opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan in their next World Cup match.

Team India have made a decision to adapt wait and see approach with their star opener Shikhar Dhawan.

The 33-year-old opener also played a huge role in India's success at the 2015 Cricket World Cup and Champions Trophy 2017.

Dhawan will undergo precautionary scans on Tuesday to determine the extent of injury on his swollen left thumb.

Dhawan had scored a magnificent 100 against Australia on Sunday at The Oval in India's second game of the tournament, but was hit on the hand by a rising delivery from Nathan Coulter-Nile. The Indian management now faces a dilemma: if they think Dhawan can recover in time for the knockouts, they can't name a replacement for him in the squad of 15.

Changes included increased number selections and bumping the starting prize up from $15 million to $40 million. The Mega Millions lottery has players in 44 states , the District of Columbia and the US Virgin Islands.

Dhawan became the third opening batsman after Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly to score at least three centuries in the World Cup.

Dhawan's loss is a significant blow to India, given his prolific form, particularly in ICC tournaments.

Despite the injury sustained during the match, Shikhar played a crucial inning for team India and helped it seize a memorable win against Australia.

But the consequences of not naming a timely replacement could be just as ruinous for India's middle-order. But then the only available replacement in India's present squad to fill Rahul's void in the middle is Vijay Shankar, who at the worldwide level has not played too many matches, and none of them higher than No.5 in the batting order. "KL Rahul to open and Pant at number 4.", Pietersen tweeted. Reports then suggested that Dhawan is out of the competition with Rishabh Pant on his way to England. And this is a big reason why they are the first two centurions for India in the World Cup and why the team have convincingly won both their matches so far. The medical team immediately attended Dhawan after the first blow.
