Shikhar Dhawan was named man-of-the-match for his innings and his injury is a huge blow to India who along with England are considered favourites. While others took it as an opportunity to ask BCCI to call-up Rishabh Pant or Shreyas Iyer to the Indian team. His exclusion from the World Cup squad had led to a great deal of commentary with everyone, from lay fans to cricket experts, describing the decision as wrong.

A ball later, Dhawan's thumb was cared for by Patrick Farhart, India's experienced physio.

Dhawan didn't take the field due to the injury during the clash against Australia and Ravindra Jadeja fielded in his place for the entire 50 overs.

Opener Shikhar Dhawan who notched up a brilliant hundred in the match against Australia paving India's way to accumulate a giant score after batting first, was hit in the left thumb a rising Nathan Coulter-Nile delivery.

Despite the injury sustained during the match, Shikhar played a crucial inning for team India and helped it seize a memorable win against Australia. Dhawan will not be able to play India's upcoming matches against New Zealand, Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Shikhar Dhawan is a key player for India in ICC tournaments where he has 6 hundreds. If no replacement is named in the current hope that Dhawan recovers by the end of the group stages and he doesn't, India's most reliable match victor Virat Kohli will bear the brunt of it-he will then be sandwiched between an unstable middle-order below him and a relatively inexperienced opening pair above. KL Rahul could potentially move up the order to assume opening responsibilities alongside Rohit Sharma. The medical team immediately attended Dhawan after the first blow.
