(UTV|COLOMBO) – India Opener Shikhar Dhawan is likely to miss the next three games of the World Cup with a thumb injury.

The left-hander was struck by a delivery from Australia Pace Bowler Pat Cummins during his 117 off 109 balls in the 36-run win at The Oval on Sunday.

He did not field during the Australia innings and will be given 10 – 12-days to recover.

Dhawan will miss matches against New Zealand and Pakistan and is a doubt for the Afghanistan game on 22 June.

“We don’t want to rule out a precious player like Shikhar so in around 10 or 12 days we’ll be taking a call,” said India Assistant Coach Sanjay Bangar.

KL Rahul, who batted at four and six in India’s opening two games, will open with Rohit Sharma against New Zealand.

Wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant, 21, has been placed on standby while Dhawan’s injury is assessed.
