Kolkata, Oct 2 (IANS) India opener Shikhar Dhawan, who got hit on his left thumb by a Trent Boult bouncer in the third over of India’s second innings of the second cricket Test on Sunday, was taken to a city hospital for x-ray.

Sources said the x-ray reports suggested a crack, but there was no official confirmation from the team management.

Dhawan got out for 17 adjudged leg before wicket to Boult leaving India tottering at 34/3 in the 11th over. Upon returning to the dressing room, the team doctor advised him for a check-up as the Delhi southpaw was complaining of pain, it was learnt.

“He was at the hospital for five minutes roughly. There is bit of a crack in the thumb. He has been advised a week’s rest at least,” sources close to the development said.
