Amid speculation of being dropped, Indian opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan posted a cryptic tweet quoting Indian Urdu poet Dr Rahat Indori. The message coming out of Dhawan's tweet is "Nothing is going to stop me." Speculation has been rife over the possibility of Dhawan being ruled out for the remaining games of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 after he fractured his left thumb. There have been reports that Rishabh Pant may be sent to England as Dhawan's replacement. However, Dhawan's latest tweet indicates that the batsman is confident about continuing despite the injury. Not Rishabh Pant, Ajinkya Rahane Should Replace Injured Shikhar Dhawan in Team India Squad for CWC 2019, Feel Twitterati!

"Kabhi mehek ki tarah hum gulon se udte hain... Kabhi dhuyein ki tarah hum parbaton se udte hain... Ye kainchiyaan humein udne se khaak rokengi... Ke hum paron se nahin hoslon se udte hain...," says Dhawan in his latest tweet quoting Indori. ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Rishabh Pant to Fly in As Cover For Shikhar Dhawan.

Shikhar Dhawan's Latest Tweet

Shikhar Dhawan was reportedly ruled out of the Cricket World Cup 2019 for three weeks with a thumb injury that he sustained during India vs Australia match on June 9 at The Oval in London. Dhawan had hit a century as India beat Australia by 36 runs to remain undefeated in the competition. The 33-year-old batsman scored 117 runs from 109 deliveries, which included 16 boundaries helping India post 352/5.

With this century, Dhawan became the Indian batsman with the most number of centuries in England. He didn’t turn up to field against the Aussies and was seen resting in the dressing room with an ice-pack covering his injured thumb for the rest of the match. However, if Dhawan's tweet is anything to go by, we may see more of Dhawan action during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as the Team India batsman refuses to be bogged by an injury.
