"Mr Dhawan's mother is stable and is recovering well at the moment," BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary was quoted as saying in the release.

The selection committee has decided not to name any replacement as only two matches are left. There are already two back-up openers in the side in KL Rahul and Ajinkya Rahane.

Dhawan, who has been in prime form from the start of the Champions Trophy, was highest run-getter in the Test series and has also scored 132 in the opening ODI of the ongoing series.
