Dhawan underpinned India's 36-run World Cup victory over Australia at the weekend with a magnificent 117 off 109 deliveries at the Oval.

Delhi's wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant has been called in as his cover.

India will lock horns with New Zealand tomorrow at Trent Bridge. He impressed all with centuries in Test matches during the tours of England and Australia earlier and was in supreme form during the recently-concluded 12th season of the IPL. "The team management has decided that Dhawan will continue to be in England and his progress will be monitored", the Indian team said in a statement on Tuesday night.

Bangar also informed that Pant is being summoned so that he can train with the team and be match-ready in case Dhawan is ruled out of the tournament.

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.

Gavaskar said wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik can open the innings with Rohit Sharma in Dhawan´s absence.

Note: Pant will only be included in the squad if Dhawan is ruled out of the World Cup. However, when last time India faced New Zeland in the warm-up match, the BlackCaps compleltely outplayed the Kohli's men.
