Although Shikhar Dhawan is out for the next few days from the World Cup 2019 and his future in this tournament is still uncertain. The Indian captain Virat Kohli believes that Shikhar Dhawan really wants to resume play and will be back soon with a positive mindset.
Positive Mindset Will Help Him in Speedy Recovery
Shikhar Dhawan injured his left thumb which found to develop a fracture against the match against Australia. Team India received a massive blow as he was declared to be out of play for initially three weeks. Now it is being said that that his injury will be assessed after 10-12 days and then the further decision will be made. According to the captain of the Indian national cricket team, Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan’s positive mindset will help him in speedy recovery.
Kohli informed that Dhawan would have plaster on for a couple of weeks. Then he would be assessed to check the progress. He hoped that Dhawan would be fine soon to resume play for later part of league matches and semi-finals. Virat applauded Dhawan for his urge to play and said, “From that point of view, we want to hold him back, keep him here because he wants to play. I think that kind of mindset will help in healing the injury as well as he really wants to play.” Dhawan’s role included fielding as well and hence he will go through a tight examination to ensure he is able to do the same comfortably.
Pant Included as a cover for Dhawa
According to reports on Espncricinfo, the assessment will be possible approximately after June 21. Dhawan was seen in the training session with a cast covering his left hand. Meanwhile, Team India will see KL Rahul as the new opener in the match against Pakistan on June 16. Rishabh Pant has been included in the squad as a cover for Dhawan. This clearly means he will be officially added only if Dhawan fails to recover. According to ICC rules, if a player is ruled out following injury he cannot be recalled.
