In a major setback to India, opener Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out of the side of the 2019 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup due to a thumb injury.

The 33-year-old sustained the injury while batting during India's 36-run win over Australia in their second clash of the quadrennial event at The Oval in London on Sunday.

Subsequently, Dhawan did not take the field during Australia's chase and Ravindra Jadeja took his place instead of the entire 50 overs as India went on to clinch their 2019 World Cup in the second consecutive win.

It is now to be seen whether Dhawan will be playing in the rest of the cricket's showpiece event for India or not.

Notably, the Indian opener had a consistent performer in major ICC events. In the ICC World Cup 2015, Dhawan had reached a total of 412 runs at an average of 51.50. He is only the third Indian batsman to score at least three ICC World Cup centuries.
