Rishabh Pant brought in as cover for Shikhar Dhawan in India's World Cup squad

PTI
Young wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant today brought in as cover for the injured Shikhar Dhawan in India's World Cup squad.

Pant's omission from the original squad became a topic of heated debates given his stupendous form in the past one year. Source said, he won't be considered a replacement till the time the team management takes a final call on Dhawan's availability for the rest of the tournament.

The 21-year-old is one of the most exciting players to have emerged in Indian cricket. Pant impressed with Test hundreds during the tours of England and Australia earlier and was in fine form during the IPL last month.

Several former players such as Sunil Gavaskar advocated for his inclusion in the squad if Dhawan fails to recover quickly.

Dhawan has been ruled out of three matches due to a hairline fracture on his left thumb which he sustained during his match-winning hundred in the clash against Australia on Sunday.
