BCCI names updated squad for Second Test India vs Bangladesh

MUMBAI: Indian skipper Rohit Sharma as well as pacer Navdeep Saini have been ruled out of the second Test against Bangladesh after their respective injuries.

This implies that vice-captain K L Rahul will carry on to lead the side in their quest to whitewash the hosts. The BCCI's medical team stated Rohit will need more time to be fit to bat and field properly. The opener is expected to be available from the Sri Lanka series.

The second and final Test between India and Bangladesh, which begins on Thursday in Mirpur, has been postponed due to the thumb injury sustained by India captain Rohit Sharma during the second ODI, the BCCI said on Tuesday, and vice-captain KL Rahul will continue to guide the team in its effort to humiliate the hosts. Rohit would require additional time to effectively field and bat, said a BCCI medical staff. The opener from the home series versus Sri Lanka is most likely going to be available.

"Rohit is receiving medical attention from the BCCI Medical Team after suffering a left thumb injury during the second ODI against Bangladesh in Dhaka. The medical team believes that the Indian skipper needs more time for the injury to heal fully before he can bat and field with all of his might. He won't be eligible for the second and final Test against Bangladesh and will continue his rehabilitation,  BCCI said in a release.
