Three ICC World Cup 2019 matches have already been abandoned due to heavy rain in England, while some other games have had to endure stop-starts due to frequent rain intervals. He had been hit on his left thumb during India's match against defending champions Australia at The Oval on Sunday.

He looked in considerable pain but carried on to score 117 off 109 balls. He, however, had not come out to field at all with Ravindra Jadeja taking his place in the field. There were apprehensions over Dhawan's availability after he suffered the injury on his thumbs.

New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor says it is too early to pick favourites for the World Cup, with most of the 10 teams firmly in the race to reach the semi-finals.

Meanwhile, rising star Rishabh Pant and Ambati Rayudu are on the BCCI´s official stand-by list in case a replacement for Dhawan is needed.
