BCCI call in cover for injured Shikhar Dhawan

Forced out of at least three World Cup matches, injured Indian batsman Shikhar Dhawan on Wednesday hinted that it is not yet over for him, posting a motivational poem about being determined on his social media page.

Cricket analysts are of the opinion that K.L. Rahul will now be the opening partner of Rohit Sharma with Dinesh Karthick and Vijay Shankar bolstering up the middle order.

The weather is expected to clear out slightly around 10 am local time (scheduled time for toss is 9 am) but rain is expected to return in the afternoon. India have beaten New Zealand six times in their last 7 encounters.

Team physio Patrick Farhart is assessing Dhawan's injury after the batsman was taken to Leeds for detailed scans.

"Team India opening batsman Mr Shikhar Dhawan is presently under the observation of the BCCI medical team". The Kiwis have won three out of the three games while India also triumphed in both the matches thus far.

There were calls from various quarters that Rishabh Pant should be called in as the replacement if Dhawan is unable to reach full fitness and is ruled out of the tournament.

If Dhawan's injury turned out to be serious, then he may miss next two World games i.e. against New Zealand and Pakistan on June 13 and June 16 respectively, the report added.

Kane Williams led the way with an unbeaten 79, including an 89-run third-wicket partnership Ross Taylor (48) as New Zealand reached 173-3 in the 33rd over.
