Team India suffered a setback in their Cricket World Cup 2019 campaign as opener Shikhar Dhawan's thumb injury ruled him out for up to three matches or more. He had been hit on his left thumb during India's match against defending champions Australia at The Oval on Sunday. Dhawan was clearly struggling after receiving the blow but had gone on to score a sublime ton.

Team physio Patrick Farhart is assessing Dhawan´s injury after the batsman was taken to Leeds for detailed scans. He, however, had not come out to field at all with Ravindra Jadeja taking his place in the field. And Sanjay Bangar has now stated that any call on Dhawan can be taken only after 10-12 days.

"As far as batting order goes, KL (Rahul) moves top of the order and there are various options the team can utilise going into the next game", Bangar said ahead of Thursday's match against New Zealand at Trent Bridge.

Last week, Lebanon's Foreign Ministry said efforts to secure Zakka's release had been successful. The security agency also posted pictures of the Ibrahim-Zakka meeting on its Twitter account.

'The team management has decided that Mr Dhawan will continue to be in England and his progress will be monitored'. And looks BCCI have heard those pleas as they have asked the wicketkeeper-batsman to flow down to England as cover for Dhawan. "The presence, he plays very well at ICC (International Cricket Council) tournaments and has a very good record over here", said Taylor.

He was also India's top run-scorer at the last World Cup.
