Indian skipper Rohit Sharma was recently rushed to hospital in order to do scans. This came following an injury to his left hand while attempting to take a catch in the ongoing second ODI against Bangladesh at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Mirpur.
Rohit Sharma is being assessed
“India Captain Rohit Sharma suffered a blow to his thumb while fielding in the 2nd ODI. The BCCI Medical Team assessed him. He has now gone for scans,” said BCCI in a statement. India would be hoping that the injury to their captain is not serious as it appeared that Rohit had a cut near the webbing.
The incident transpired in the fourth ball of the second over of the Bangladesh innings when India pacer Mohammed Siraj got one to kick from good length to find the outside edge of opener Anamul Haque Bijoy’s bat. The ball went low to Rohit, standing at slip. He got both hands to it but the ball hit the wrong place on his thumb and bounced out. The Indian captain was in discomfort immediately. There was blood on his left palm even as Rohit walked off the field grimacing in pain.
In the last match, the Men in Blue were bowled out for 186 runs after being asked to bat first on a slightly tacky surface. They went on to lose the match by just one wicket, courtesy of a 51-run last-wicket partnership between Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Mustafizur Rahman.
Vice-captain KL Rahul since then has taken over the captaincy duties. India are fighting to stay alive in the three-match series after losing the low-scoring series opener by 1 wicket.
