Huge blow for India; Shikhar Dhawan ruled out of World Cup 2019

Shikhar Dhawan- the man for India in ICC events

Shikar Dhawan will be missing India's upcoming matches against New Zealand, Pakistan, Afghanistan, West Indies, and England - all these matches are scheduled to be played in June. In case they decide to rest Dhawan for the remainder of the series, the replacement could be Shreyas Iyer or Rishabh Pant.

It was Dhawan's sixth hundred in an ICC event and the first World Cup hundred made by an Indian batsman against Australia since 1999. If no replacement is named in the current hope that Dhawan recovers by the end of the group stages and he doesn't, India's most reliable match victor Virat Kohli will bear the brunt of it-he will then be sandwiched between an unstable middle-order below him and a relatively inexperienced opening pair above. Former players Sunil Gavaskar and Kevin Pietersen backed the 21-year-old to replace Dhawan given his recent form in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019.

He had scored 2 magnificent hundreds in the 2015 World Cup organized in Australia and New Zealand as well.

Kerr says Durant will practice ahead of Game 5
He's one of the best competitors I've ever been around". "I'm a little sore but more mentally and emotionally". Durant was supposed to practice on Thursday prior to Friday's Game 4 but ultimately was unable to do so.

"But if Shikhar and the doctors say that he can be fit in the next 18 days, then I would wait for him even if it means he sits out of the England game (June 30). For your country you bear the pain, you mentally strengthen and control yourself", he added. Suggesting for the same, Kevin Pietersen asked the board to bring in Rishabh Pant as quickly as possible. In India's two matches so far in this World Cup, he has made 8 and 117.

KL Rahul to open and Pant at number 4.

Get Pant on the plane ASAP. In the first two games, Rahul had batted at number four. "He averages 45 in ODIs and not being part of the World Cup with that average is very disappointing", he told Star Sports.
