Dhawan, hero of India's win over Australia in the World Cup on Sunday, played through pain and went on to score 117 off 109 balls, hitting 16 fours and 1 sixer. However, Shikhar Dhawan didn't return on the field in the second innings as Ravindra Jadeja fielded the entire 50 overs. After undergoing scans on Tuesday, Dhawan was ruled out. Will Vijay Shankar, India's designated no.4 before the tournament began, bat at no. 4 now or will it be the player who replaces Shikhar in the squad, if indeed a replacement player is sent from India.
