India opener Shikhar Dhawan on Wednesday hinted that his ICC World Cup 2019 campaign is far from over by sharing a cryptic tweet. Ruled out of India’s next three World Cup matches at least due to a hairline fracture, Dhawan posted a motivational poem along with pictures of his injured thumb being attended by Team India physio Patrick Farhart, reports

Dhawan will miss India’s next three games — against New Zealand (Thursday), Pakistan (Sunday) and Afghanistan (June 22) — owing to a hairline fracture in his left thumb. He continues to be with the squad but under observation.

“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... (Sometimes we are like the fragrance of flowers, sometimes the smoke that comes out of mountains. How can any scissors cut short our flight as we don’t fly on wings but courage),” he posted.
