So they are in good form. I hope Shikhar recovers well and recovers soon," Ganguly, who has returned from his World Cup commentary assignment, said in Kolkata on Wednesday. <p></p> <p></p>"Injuries are part and parcel nobody has control on it. Hope others come and do well. I thought Vijay Shankar did exceptionally well with the ball in Bhuvi's absence. This is a good Indian team and they will make it to the semis and we will see what happens," Ganguly added. <p></p> <p></p>In Dhawan's absence, KL Rahul scored a fifty in India's comprehensive 89-run win over Pakistan in their previous outing as India are still unbeaten from four matches. <p></p> <p></p>"India have looked the best in the World Cup so far, then England and Australia," Ganguly said while launching a mobile blood donation bus by Project Life Force. <p></p> <p></p>India next take on minnows Afghanistan in their fifth rubber at Southampton on June 22.
