This will not come as a huge blow to Indian cricket as Dhawan seldom bowls in international matches buy Shashtri and Co. will no doubt try to wipe any blemish that might appear. Accordign to ICC, Dhawan has to undergo a test within the next 14 days as per ICC guidelines. Till the test result arrives, Dhawan can continue to bowl in international cricket but if the report finds his elbow folding more than 15%, he has to correct his actions and go for further tests.
