After hurting his left thumb, Rohit had suggested for an X-ray.

Due to the seamer’s limited ability to bowl more than three overs, the India skipper took the brunt of the hit when he dropped a catch in the second over.

In the ongoing second ODI against Bangladesh, India captain Rohit Sharma injured his left thumb while trying – and missing – a catch in the slips. He was taken to a hospital in Dhaka for an X-ray. They later suffered another setback as Deepak Chahar was unable to bowl after his first three overs and left the field with a sore hamstring.

When Bangladesh opener Anamul Haque edged behind in the second over, which was delivered by Mohammed Siraj, Rohit was fielding at second slip. Even though Rohit had both hands on the ball as it dipped on him, he was unable to hang on. He quickly left the pitch after the ball struck his thumb to receive medical attention and was then taken for scans.

In Rohit’s absence, wicketkeeper and vice-captain KL Rahul assumed the captaincy. The TV commentators announced that Rohit had left the hospital during the 39th over of Bangladesh’s innings, but he did not go out to field. Virat Kohli moved up to partner Shikhar Dhawan at the top of the order in the chase, therefore Rohit did not start India’s innings either.
