During the third one-day international match between India and Bangladesh, the Indian cricket team was dealt a significant setback as both skipper Rohit Sharma and bowler Deepak Chahar suffered injuries.
According to Rahul Dravid, the head coach, despite the fact that both players came out to bat late in the game, neither one of them will be eligible for the third one-day international.
The ailment that sidelined Kuldeep Sen in the second one-day international also kept him out of the lineup for the third and final one-day international of the series.
During the news conference that Dravid had after the match, he confirmed that the three players would not be continuing on in the ODI series. He further disclosed that Rohit will be flying back to Mumbai in order to speak with a specialist regarding his injury.
The participation of the Hitman in the upcoming test series against Bangladesh will not be confirmed until after it has been determined whether or not a comprehensive analysis has been carried out.
“We are also dealing with a few injuries, which is neither ideal nor simple for us. We are having a hard time. It seems likely that Deepak Chahar and Rohit Sharma won’t be able to make it to the following game. Kuldeep has also been removed off the show.
Rohit will take a flight back to Bombay, where he will meet with a specialist to discuss the status of his injury and determine whether or not he will be able to participate in the upcoming test series.
It is too soon to tell anything for certain, but he will definitely miss the next match due to his injury “he stated in the news conference following the encounter.
Rohit took the field to bat for India at the No. 9 spot despite receiving a blow to the thumb during the previous play. It was due to his undefeated knock of 51 runs that the game was brought down to the final ball.
But in the end, India was defeated by the Bangla Tigers in the second one-day international by a score of 5 runs. The result also allowed Bangladesh to win their home ODI series against India for the second time in a row, making it a perfect 2-0.
The third and final One-Day International match of the series will take place in Chattogram on Saturday, and the first Test match of the series will begin on Wednesday, December 14 at the same venue.
