"For Sunday, we know we're there when it comes to the mindset". His injury will be a major blow for India as the team will now be without one of its star batsmen.

According to reports, KL Rahul is expected to replace Dhawan as India's opening batsmen along with Rohit Sharma.

"Dhawan is going to be in a plaster for a couple of weeks".

Dhawan, however, played no further part in the match after his dismissal, with substitute Ravindra Jadeja taking the field in his place as India comfortably defended their total of 352 for five to complete a 36-run victory.

He has played 10 World Cup matches since his debut in 2010, scoring 537 runs at an average of 53.70.

Rishabh Pant has been called into the squad as cover but will not officially be added unless Dhawan fails to recover.

Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar said Dhawan is a huge asset for the team and should be given every chance to return if his injury heals in time. "Even if he misses the England game, then he still has games against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka to get him ready for the knockout stages".

"But Rohit and Virat should also be looking to play long innings".

India's third match in the ongoing Cricket World Cup 2019 was washed out without a ball being bowled at Trent Bridge on Thursday. "All the excitement and frenzy around the game could intimidate guys who are playing for the first time", Kohli said at the India vs New Zealand post-match interview.
