Due to an injury, Rohit Sharma will not be able to play in the second test match against Bangladesh, which will begin on December 22 at Dhaka. The captain of India, who did not participate in the first test held in Chattogram, will not be making the trip to Dhaka. In his absence, India’s vice-captain and current captain; KL Rahul, will continue to lead the team in the second and final test of the series. India now leads the series 1-0.
On Monday (December 19), it was discovered that the skipper’s thumb; damaged during the second one-day international of the current tour, had not entirely healed. This discovery led to the announcement that Rohit would not be available for the remainder of the tour. He is experiencing some degree of stiffness in his body. The BCCI, the selection committee, and the team management have concluded that it is not worth taking a risk on him in light of the crucial tasks for the Indian squad.
It has come to light that Rohit, now located in Mumbai; would have been able to bat through the entirety of the test; but there are still concerns regarding the dangers associated with fielding. If he were to sustain another injury to that thumb while playing; the medical staff and the team’s management believed it could worsen into a more catastrophic condition. When Rahul was asked about the possibility of Rohit being available for the second test; he said they were still waiting for more information. At the press conference that was held after the first Test on Sunday; the vice-captain had mentioned something to the effect that; “we may be able to know in the next day or two; even I am not aware of it.”
First impressions indicate that he will be available for the white ball series against Sri Lanka; consisting of three Twenty20 Internationals and three One-Day Internationals commencing on January 3.
After Rohit sustained an injury to his thumb while attempting to take catch in the slips during the second one-day international; the medical staff of the BCCI evaluated his condition. It rushed him to Mumbai for treatment on December 7. Since then, he has been attending appointments and getting treatment in the city.
Because the squad’s management would have had difficulty deciding which player to bench for the second test; Rohit’s absence may have helped them solve a key selection problem. Shubman Gill scored his first hundred in a Test match for India; which led to the team’s victory in the first match by 188 runs. KL Rahul, India’s stand-in skipper and the fellow opener, had a very quiet game with the bat.
During this time, the Indian team left Chattogram early on Monday morning and made their way to Dhaka. They will practice over the course of the subsequent two days before the beginning of the test on Thursday (December 22).
The team’s captain, Rohit Sharma, sustained an injury.
While fielding, Rohit Sharma, the captain of the Indian side; sustained a serious injury to his thumb during the second One-Day International match that was played against Bangladesh in Dhaka. As Rohit, fielding in the slip cordon then attempted to catch the ball during the fourth delivery of Mohammed Siraj’s second over; the injury to Rohit’s thumb occurred. Mohammed Siraj was the bowler. After the Indian captain sustained an injury; he was immediately removed from the field, where he received first attention, and Rajat Patidar replaced him.
There will not be an advisory to the selection committee for the next Ranji games.
In other news; we had learned from sources within the BCCI that no advisory has been issued to the Chetan Sharma selection committee members regarding the second round of the Ranji games; which will begin on Tuesday. These revelations result from the second round of the Ranji games getting underway on Tuesday. The matches from the first round, which took place from December 13-16; were watched by the selectors, who a new committee will soon replace.
As of the beginning of the work week on Monday; there needs to be more information regarding the interviews for the new selection committee. On the other hand, they will likely happen as soon as possible rather than later.
