Dhawan was on Wednesday forced out of the mega-event owing to a fractured left thumb, an injury that he picked up during the June 9 clash against Australia. The swashbuckler scored a match-winning hundred while playing through pain in that game.
“Feel for you Shikhar. You were playing well & to be injured in the middle of such an important tournament is heartbreaking. I’m sure you’ll come back stronger than ever,” Tendulkar tweeted.
“Rishabh you’ve been playing well & there can’t be a bigger platform to express yourself. Good luck!,” Tendulkar.
India will play their next match on Saturday against minnows Afghanistan. The two-time champions are undefeated in the ongoing edition.
