ICC World Cup 2019: ‘Heart-Breaking’ Cricket fraternity disappointed as Shikhar Dhawan ruled out of the tournament

Posted On / /

No more twirling of mustache, no more ‘Daddy D’ celebrations, and no more cuts and drives through the off-side as India is set to miss the swagger of opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan in the remaining of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

The southpaw has been ruled out of the ongoing 10-nation tournament due to a fractured left thumb that he suffered in the match against Australia on June 9.

Despite the detection of a hairline fracture, the Indian team management waited to name a replacement but had called up Rishabh Pant in case needed.

Cricket fraternity and fans were left disappointed as Dhawan was in good form and has been India’s consistent performer in ICC tournaments.
