Quoting sources, a report by The Times of India said that once all the details on Dhawan's injury will be available, an official request for a replacement will be put out by the team management and that replacement is going to be Pant. Pant will be on stand-by as the medical team keeps Dhawan under observation.

Shikhar Dhawan had gone for a scan on Monday and the report reveals he has a hairline fracture on his left thumb.

Dhawan's loss is a significant blow to India, given his prolific form, particularly in ICC tournaments. During the warm-ups, India found an eleventh-hour solution to their long-running No.4 problem in KL Rahul. "He would probably want to show that he deserved to be in the team in the first place", Gavaskar told India Today when asked about his pick for a replacement if Dhawan is ruled out.

The team managements aim clearly is to try and give Dhawan a chance to regain full fitness so that they don't lose his services.
