Dhawan was hit by a ball from Pat Cummins during his century at The Oval on June 9, which forced him off the field for the duration of the Australian innings. India captain Virat Kohli had opened up on monitoring Dhawan's injury before taking a final call on him.

India's opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out of the rest of their World Cup campaign after fracturing his thumb earlier in the tournament, the country's cricket board (BCCI) said on Wednesday. What perhaps prompted the team management to finally make an annoucement on Dhawan's injury was the fact that even Bhuvneshwar Kumar is injured. Consequently, he will not take any further part in the ongoing World Cup.

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. If the sources are to be believed, the southpaw is not in a position to recover in time for the remaining games of the showpiece event.

India team manager Sunil Subramaniam said in a press conference: "Shikhar has a fracture at the base of his first metacarpal on his left hand".

Arsenal name Ljungberg as Emery’s new assistant
But Emery is reportedly convinced he's the kind of long-term signing that can change Arsenal's fotunes for many seasons to come. Many Arsenal fans have been asking for a shake-up like this for quite a while and now they've gotten their wish.

Ever since the news came out, the fans have been busy showing their support for Dhawan.

The left-handed batsman was ruled for three weeks initially.

"It's so heartbreaking to be ruled out of a world cup due to injury, my heart goes out to @SDhawan25". Subsequently the BCCI sought permission from the ICC to name Rishabh Pant as the replacement and the request was approved. The duo added 136 runs during last Sunday's clash against Pakistan at Manchester's Old Trafford.
