India opener Shikhar Dhawan is back to full fitness and available for selection for the upcoming West Indies tour which starts from August 3. Dhawan had fractures his left thumb during the Cricket World Cup 2019 and has been out of action since June 9.
But the left-handed batsman has recuperated completely from the injury and has made himself available for selection in all three formats. The Indian T20I, ODI and Test squads will be announced by the MSK Prasad-led selection panel on Sunday afternoon.
Dhawan was wanting in smart bit throughout the primary 2 matches of the Cricket tourney and even scored a match-winning hundred against Australia, the sport within which he got hurt on his thumb by a Pat Cummins guard.
But he braved the pain and continuing to bat, occurring to get 117 off 109 balls during a match that Republic of India won by thirty six runs.
But when the sport he went for scans that confirmed a capillary fracture and Dhawan was dominated out for up to 6 weeks, missing all of India's remaining matches as a result.
KL Rahul had to replace him in the opener's slot alongside Rohit Sharma and had a good run with the bat with 361 runs in 9 matches at 45.12 including a hundred and two fifties. But his promotion up the order meant India had to try out the likes of Vijay Shankar and Rishabh Pant at No. 4.

But that proved to be India's Achilles heel after Dhawan's injury. Shankar failed to fire at No. 4 while Pant did his best in the four games he got to play in, scoring 32, 48, 4 and 32 as India's campaign came to a disappointing end in the semi-finals where they lost to New Zealand.
Just three days ago on July 18, Dhawan had hit the nets for the first time more than a month since his injury as he posted a video clip on social media wherein he was seen taking a hit at the nets.
