New Delhi, Jun 19 (UNI) Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out of the ICC World Cup due to thumb injury sustained during the match against Australia.

Dhawan was hit by a bouncer of Australian speedster Pat Cummins on Sunday, June 9.

The left hander, however, continued to play with the injury and scored 117 off 109 in the winning cause.
