New Delhi :

After a gape of one year following an injury and an eight-moth doping ban, talented opener Prithvi Shaw replaced injured Shikhar Dhawan for the upcoming ODI series against New Zealand. Wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson has been named as Dhawan's replacement for the T20I series starting from January 24 at Auckland.

Dhawan had dislocated his shoulder while fielding in the third ODI against Australia on Sunday. He didn’t come to bat and was spotted wearing a sling in the dressing room. Samson, who played in the T20 series against Sri Lanka earlier this month, was back as a reserve opener cum keeper.

"An MRI of his shoulder was conducted, and the results have confirmed a grade II injury of his acromio-clavicular joint. His hand will be in a sling and he has been advised rest for some time. He will start his active rehab management in the first week of February at the National Cricket Academy," BCCI media release stated.
