NEW DELHI: India opener Shikhar Dhawan is down but surely not out. The flamboyant left-hander continues to train in the gym, despite nursing a hairline fracture in his left thumb. Dhawan suffered the injury against Australia and the fracture was confirmed on Tuesday. His condition will be assessed again sometime around the 21st – 23rd of this month. He is still part of the Indian 15 man squad at the World Cup and the team management will be hoping he is fully fit at least in time for the match vs England on June 30.
In a video shared by Dhawan on his official Twitter handle, the 33-year-old can be seen sweating it out in the gym with a plastered thumb. Along with the video Dhawan also shared a message thanking his fans for their good wishes which have been pouring in since the news of his injury broke.
“You can make these situations your nightmare or use it (as) an opportunity to bounce back. Thank you for all the recovery messages from everyone,” Dhawan wrote alongside the video.
