Dhawan got out for 17 adjudged leg before wicket to Boult leaving India tottering at 34/3 in the 11th over. Upon returning to the dressing room, the team doctor advised him for a check-up as the Delhi southpaw was complaining of pain, it was learnt.

Shikhar Dhawan reacts after an injury during 3rd day of the 2nd Test match against New Zealand at Eden Garden in Kolkata on Sunday.

"He was at the hospital for five minutes roughly. The x-ray report is yet to come. There is some doubt whether he will be able to take the field," a source close to the development said. (Ind-NZ series schedule)

Before the hit on his thumb, Dhawan also picked up a knock on his shoulder, hit by another Boult delivery.

It was learnt that he could be out of action for three weeks.
