Dhawan injured his shoulder during the third ODI against Australia in Bengaluru while fielding and had to be rushed for an MRI scan. As per the BCCI statement, the MRI scan revealed that Dhawan has a Grade 2 injury in acromio-clavicular joint.

"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," read the statement.
