ICC CWC 2019: Dhawan’s World Cup ain’t over yet. Find how?


XtraTime Web Desk: After a thumb fracture India’s star opener Shikhar Dhawan on Wednesday hinted the ongoing World Cup is still not over for him as he posted a motivational poem on his social media handle.Dhawan will miss India’s next three games — against New Zealand (Thursday), Pakistan (Sunday) and Afghanistan (June 22) — owing to a hairline fracture in his left thumb. He continues to be with the squad but under observation.

Delhi’s wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant has been called in as his cover.

The 33-year-old quoted legendary Urdu poet Rahat Indori on his Twitter page to show his intentions.

“Kabhi mehek ki tarah hum gulon se udte hain…Kabhi dhuyein ki tarah hum parbaton se udte hain…Ye kainchiyaan humein udne se khaak rokengi…Ke hum paron se nahin hoslon se udte hain… (Sometimes we are like the fragrance of flowers, sometimes the smoke that comes out of mountains. How can any scissor cut short our flight as we don’t fly on wings but courage),” he posted.


Dhawan picked up the injury during the match-winning hundred against Australia on Sunday.
