Shikhar Dhawan is recovering from a left knee injury that he suffered during a Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy T20 game for Delhi earlier this month.

USA equaled a dubious record of lowest innings score in ODI. They managed it against Nepal in ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup League 2 at Kirtipur. The sole holder of the distinction were Zimbabwe who did this vs SL in 2004.
USA weren’t all failure though.They managed to create a record of being bundled out in minimum overs. They needed just 12 overs to do so. Managing to overhaul previous best by good two overs!
Corona Virus has started it’s effect on Indian sports scene too. Latest being affected is none other than IPL. It’s a decided that this years IPL will be conducted indoors to avoid large gatherings of people.

IPL organizers must be taking the call more out of pressure from other Sports organizers around the world. Not that they are really concerned about the spread of the virus!
