In the World Cup, there was a big setback to the Indian team. Shikhar Dhawan, injured in the match against Australia, will not be able to play for three weeks. Due to injury, Dhawan has to be out of the team. He was scanned today after the swelling of Dhawan’s left-hand thumb. The doctors advised 3 weeks to rest after scanning their injuries.
Injured in a match against Australia
Virar had hit the ball with India’s victory in the World Cup match against the Australian bowler, Dhawan, for the fast bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile, but he had played despite the pain. Despite a lot of pain, Dhawan played 117 off 109 balls. Dhawan did not get to fielding due to injury and Ravindra Jadeja had fielded the entire 50 overs.
Experts believe that young wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant could get a place in the team in absence of the summit. In this situation, KL will open with Rahul Rohit Sharma while Pant will bat down. Let me tell you that Pant did not get a place in the World Cup team, which was also discussed. Later, the BCCI had said that Rishabh Pant, along with Ambati Rayudu, has been kept as a stand-by player.
Let me tell you that Pant had done well in IPL 2019 but he did not have much experience playing in the international team. Pant has played so far 5 ODIs. In this, he scored 93 runs. His maximum score is 36 runs.
There are reports that the team has taken the name of Shreyas Iyer, right-arm batsman Shreyas Iyer, to take the place of Shikhar. Shane Kier Iyer recently captained Delhi Daredevils in the IPL. In his captaincy, the Delhi team reached the playoff for the first time.
Who will replace Dhawan?
The Indian team has the option of K L Rahul as the opening batsman. Rahul has also opened in some matches before. In the place of Dhawan, who will get the chance, the picture is not clear right now. According to the sources, the name of Shreyas Iyer has been extended by the team. Some experts say that Rishabh Pant can be included in the team after looking at the current situation. It is believed that anyone from Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant can get an opportunity.
Rahul will be replaced in the place of Dhawan, then what will be difficult?
Shikhar Dhawan is a left-handed batsman while K El Rahul is batting with the right hand. Generally, the opening partnership with left and the right-hand batsman is considered ideal. In such a situation, with the opening of KL Rahul, team management can be reluctant to do this because of this. However, keeping in mind the ideal conditions for opening with left and right-hand batsmen, the name of Shreyas Iyer is going ahead.
The Indian team’s next match is with New Zealand. However, the injury to Shikhar Dhawan at the start of the tournament has caused a major setback to the Indian team. Now the salami duo shows how much breath they face in the coming match.
