BAHRS GLOBAL NEWS, 19 JUN 2019
Sports Reporter : Rishabh Pant has been included in the India squad after Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan was ruled out of World Cup 2019 with a thumb fracture. Dhawan suffered a hairline fracture during his match-winning 117 against Austraia at The Oval on June 9.
The BCCI has now requested the Technical Committee of the International Cricket Council (ICC) and officially requested for Dhawan’s replacement.
The team management had put Shikhar Dhawan under observation but called in Rishabh Pant from India as cover just before India’s match against New Zealand.
KL Rahul will continue to open alongside Rohit Sharma like he did against Pakistan last Sunday.
