IND vs BAN: Indian Captain Rohit Sharma will likely be ruled out of the upcoming two-match test series against Bangladesh scheduled to start on 14 December at Chattogram. Sharma sustained a grievous injury and dislocated his thumb while fielding in the second ODI against Bangladesh.

Though India lost the match in a riveting last-ball fish, the heroics of Rohit Sharma were highly praised by the fans and critics. Sharma came in to bat at 9 with a heavily bandaged thumb and played a spirited knock of 51 runs of 28 balls and anchored the side close to the total when everyone had lost hope.

Rohit’s unavailability will likely mean that his deputy KL Rahul will ascend the throne for the insurgents India. Head Coach Rahul Dravid has already confirmed that Sharma will be missing the third ODI alongside injured paceman Deepak Chahar and Kuldeep Sen.

India will aim to fight back with a gallant performance in view of the upcoming World Test Championship Final in June 2023. All matches for India from hereon stand as do or die.

Abhimanyu Easwaran named Rohit’s replacement

Incumbent India A skipper Abhimanyu Easwaran will likely replace Rohit Sharma in India’s frontline squad for the series. Abhimanyu smashed back-to-back centuries to pave the way for victory against Bangladesh A in India’s shadow test tour.

Apart from Rohit Sharma, BCCI will also announce the replacement for injured veteran paceman Mohammad Shami. Emerging pacer Mukesh Kumar is the front-runner to get a place in the squad after a great domestic season and scintillating performance for India A team. Meanwhile, BCCI has also roped in uncapped left-arm spinner Saurabh Kumar to replace Ravindra Jadeja.

Injury threats looming over the Indian camp will likely impact the much-wanted results for the side.
