Shikhar dhawan hit by a bouncer from Pat Cummins.
Rajkot: Senior India opener Shikhar Dhawan was hit in the chest by a Pat Cummins bouncer on Friday at the second ODI against Australia.
Shikhar Dhawan was out of the field throughout the Australian inning. The Indian national cricket team is confident. He will be available for the final aus vs ind ODI in Bengaluru.
It could not be determined whether Dhawan was checked for the extent of the injury as a precaution.
Incidentally, it was a Cummins bouncer in the first game who confused Rishabh Pant and dropped out of the second match after being taken to the hospital for a precautionary CT scan.
“Shikhar Dhawan was hit on the right side of the chest. He won’t be on the pitch today. Yuzvendra Chahal is there as his replacement,” said a BCCI during the break in the india vs australia 2nd ODI.
After the game, however, the team leadership stated that Dhawan was “doing well” and that there were no problems as such.
Dhawan was hit in the 10th over.
Dhawan was hit over the Indian innings in the tenth year. He was in severe pain and in need of medical attention. He decided to keep playing and was fluent in India, out of a total of 340 for six.
Ironically, Dhawan had a broken thumb at the World Cup against Australia. He was hit by an bouncer delivery from Nathan Coulter-Nile.
Let’s call it a coincidence, Dhawan was also the top scorer in this game when he scored 117 in India’s easy win. But the broken thumb finally shut him out of the tournament and was out for two months.
Shikhar returned to the West Indies and suffered. He was hit by a muscle injury before getting a deep cut in his knee while playing with the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. He had to be taken to a medical facility where he needed 27 stitches and failed for another month.
Dhawan came back with a century in Ranji Trophy.
The left-hander made a comeback in domestic cricket. He scored a hundred runss for Delhi in a Ranji Trophy game against Hyderabad under seam conditions.
Just when the 34-year-old got his mojo back after three half centuries, he is afraid of another injury.
Dhawan is expected to be scanned as a precautionary measure. This is to determine if he had a rib fracture that could mean another long interruption in the game.
