Team India will not get the services of its regular captain i.e. Rohit Sharma in the second Test match against Bangladesh. Rohit has not yet recovered from the injury, due to which it has not been possible for him to reach Bangladesh. This means that in the second test also, KL Rahul will take charge of the team in place of Rohit Sharma. Apart from this, only Shubman Gill will be seen handling the command of the opening in his place in the second test.
Let us tell you that earlier there was news that Rohit Sharma can reach Bangladesh for the second Test. After the first Test match, KL Rahul had said that the decision on Rohit Sharma would be taken in the next one or two days. And now that hour has come. The final seal was put on the fact that Team India will have to live without Rohit in the Test from Bangladesh. Leading 1-0 in the Test series, the Indian team has to play the second and last Test against Bangladesh from 22 December. This match will be held in Mirpur.
Rohit’s injury is not well yet
The news of Rohit being ruled out of the second Test against Bangladesh came on 19 December after a medical examination found that his injury had not yet healed. Rohit suffered a thumb injury during the second ODI against Bangladesh. Due to this injury, he was ruled out of the third ODI and then the first Test. But now he is also out of the last test played on Bangladesh tour. BCCI and team management also did not want to take any risk by sending Rohit to Bangladesh.
Can return from the series against Sri Lanka
According to the news, Rohit Sharma is currently in Mumbai. Due to injury, his problem is not batting but fielding. It is believed that Rohit, who was ruled out of the second Test against Bangladesh, will be seen returning to the field from the white ball series against Sri Lanka in January 2023.
