Former Australian batsman <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/michael-hussey/">Michael Hussey</a> has described <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/shikhar-dhawan/news/">Shikhar Dhawan</a>'s ouster from the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/icc-cricket-world-cup-2019-200898/">World Cup</a> due to a thumb injury as a "big loss" but said it won't derail India's campaign at the showpiece event. <p></p> <p></p>"I do think it's a big loss but I don't think it will derail India's campaign. I think they have got enough depth to cover Shikhar Dhawan," Hussey said in an <em>ESPNcricinfo</em> show. <p></p> <p></p>"I still think they have got enough talent in their squad to feel that they can go all the way in this tournament," he added. <p></p> <p></p>Dhawan was ruled out of the World Cup on Wednesday after failing to make enough recovery in a fresh assessment of his thumb fracture. He was replaced by young wicketkeeper-batsman <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/rishabh-pant/news/">Rishabh Pant</a>. <p></p> <p></p>The 33-year-old, who was initially ruled out of three games -- against Pakistan (June 16), Afghanistan (June 22) and the West Indies (June 27), had picked up the injury after he was hit by a Pat Cummins' delivery during his 109-ball match-winning innings of 117 against Australia. <p></p> <p></p>India are currently at the fourth spot with seven points from four games. Virat Kohli and Co. will next face Afghanistan on Saturday at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton.
