Shikhar Dhawan’s participation in the first few matches of the New Zealand tour is under a cloud after the opener injured his left shoulder during fielding on Sunday.

India open the tour with a five-match T20I series in New Zealand. The squad leaves on Monday night.

Dhawan was taken for scans and had his arm in a sling but according to a team spokesman the “reports are being assessed and a call will be taken shortly”.

Dhawan fell on his left shoulder in the fifth over of the match as he dived to stop an Aaron Finch drive at cover point. He later walked off the field after physio Nitin Patel attended to him.
