India opener Shikhar Dhawan will undergo precautionary scans on Tuesday. The scans will be done to determine the extent of injury on his swollen left thumb.

Dhawan, hero of India's win over Australia in the World Cup on Sunday, played through pain after being hit on the thumb by a rising delivery from pacer Nathan Coulter-Nile.

He looked in considerable pain but carried on to score 117 off 109 balls. However, the 33-year-old didn't take the field due to the injury and Ravindra Jadeja fielded in his place for the entire 50 overs.

The Indian team would be hoping that it is not a fracture and just a bit of swelling that should heal in the next couple of days. As of now, Dhawan has a taping on his thumb.

The Men in Blue have been in fantastic form during the current World Cup, having won their first two fixtures against South Africa and Australia.
