After the scans, physio Patrick Farhart took the call to not use Dhawan for three weeks. The Delhi Capitals player could be back before the Bangladesh fixture. After more examination, the injury turned out to be a hairline fracture.

Wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant has been called up to provide cover for Dhawan. For now, Pant is only part of India's training sessions. An assessment of Dhawan's injury will be done in the coming week, only after that, it will be decided if Pant will be a part of the dressing room or not.
