Rishabh Pant To Join the Indian Squad as Cover for the Injured Shikhar Dhawan

Avatar
Written by Asad Naseer

Rishabh Pant will fly in this week to join the Indian squad as a cover for Shikhar Dhawan, who suffered a hairline fracture after being hit on the left thumb against Australia on Sunday. Pant was one of the five stand-bys announced by the selectors in April while announcing the 15-man squad for the World Cup.
The selectors have worked out that KL Rahul can perform Dhawan’s role should he fail to recover, which is the rationale behind choosing Pant, a middle-order batsman, as cover. Rahul was originally picked as the third opener in the squad, but sneaked into the XI last minute as No. 4.
Dhawan is also currently India’s only specialist left-handed batsman in the squad, and disrupted Australia’s bowling plans during his century earlier this week, negating legspinner Adam Zampa. This purported advantage against leg spin in the middle overs is another significant reason the selectors have opted for the left-handed Pant. He has played five ODIs since his debut against West Indies in October last year and averages 23.25 and was part of India’s squad during their home series against Australia this year.

Dhawan had traveled to Leeds to consult specialists, where the fracture was ascertained.Times24x7 understands the selectors have got a positive signal from the medical team that Dhawan is likely to be fit to play in the latter half of the tournament, closer to the June 30 match against hosts England.
