India have had a great start to their World Cup 2019 campaign.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India confirmed the diagnosis on Wednesday night, ten days after he suffered the injury against Australia.

On Wednesday the 19th of June, team India's opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan was ruled out of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, due to a fracture in his hand.

Rishabh Pant, who had agonizingly fallen short of the 15 man squad has been now called up as a replacement for Dhawan and will be in the reckoning for the remaining games. India came to win the match comfortably. In his absence, KL Rahul opened against Pakistan and did well by scoring 57 as India won the game by 89 runs. "I appreciate it and unfortunately, my [injured] thumb won't recover in time".

Pant was brought in as cover for him after the team management chose to wait on Dhawan's recovery but assessment of the injury this week did no throw up encouraging results. "Team India Manager Sunil Subramaniam: Shikhar Dhawan has a fracture at the base of the first metacarpal of his left hand". Meanwhile, Rishabh Pant, who was earlier roped in as Dhawan's cover, is set to be added to the Indian squad with the management requesting the ICC to approve the change to the squad.

Cricket journalist Rehan Ul Haq felt the inclusion of Pant, despite the loss of Dhawan will actually improve their chances, such is Pant's explosiveness.
