Dhawan got hit between the index finger and thumb during India’s match World Cup match against Australia on June 9. The opener went on to play a match-winning knock of 117 runs. After the match, the player went to Leeds for scans and soon after BCCI released an update saying, “Team India opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan is presently under the observation of the BCCI medical team.

“As soon as you enter the field, it’s calm and relaxed. The atmosphere from the outside, for the first time, it’s a bit intimidating, but we’ll look to execute well. It’s been competitive for years, it’s a marquee event all over the world, honour to be a part of the big game. Brings out the best in all of us,” Kohli said.
