India opener Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out of the remainder of the World Cup with a fractured left thumb. "We have requested Rishab Pant as the replacement", he said in the press conference. Dhawan had suffered the injury during the win over Australia.

He travelled to Leeds to meet a surgeon after that, where the hairline fracture was diagnosed. Ravindra Jadeja had fielded for him throughout the match. However, the Indian team-management made a decision to keep their star opener under observation. The team management was of the opinion that Dhawan would recover before India's last two league matches and the knockout matches.

The Indian team management made a decision to put Shikhar Dhawan under observation but called in Rishabh Pant from India as stand-by. Apart from his current form, Dhawan has a stellar record in ICC tournaments, which is why his absence might hurt India. He also enjoyed a good run in the IPL last month, scoring 488 runs with a strike rate of over 160. With Dhawan out of action now, KL Rahul looks set to open alongside Rohit Sharma in the upcoming games.

China, UK Launch Stock Connect Program
The Shanghai-London Stock Connect will be one of a suite of Stock Connect schemes entered into by the Peoples Republic of China. British finance minister Philip Hammond called a chance to deepen "global connectivity".

The BCCI on Wednesday confirmed that several orthopedic doctors have confirmed that Dhawan's left hand thumb will remain in a cast until the middle of July and therefore the southpaw will not be able to play for India in the remaining World Cup matches.

There was a lot of hoopla over Pant's omission from the World Cup squad with former India captain Sourav Ganguly going to the extent of saying that Virat Kohli and Co. will miss the big-hitting keeper-batsman in the mega event. With Vijay Shankar impressing against Pakistan, the team is likely to persist with him. They have won against South Africa, Australia and Pakistan while the game against New Zealand was washed out.
