Ind vs Ban: Rohit Sharma's injury update, will he play the 2nd Test match?

Dhaka: Team India has got an unbeatable 1-0 lead in the two-match Test series against Bangladesh and now the second Test match is to be played at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka from December 22. Two days before this match, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced that captain Rohit Sharma has now been ruled out of the second Test match. Rohit Sharma suffered an injury to his thumb while fielding in the second ODI of the three-match series against Bangladesh, after which he could not play the third ODI and the first Test match.

After the injury, Rohit returned to Mumbai from Bangladesh and it was believed that he would go to Bangladesh for the second Test. Rohit's injury has improved a lot, but the team management does not want to take any risk about Rohit's injury given the upcoming busy schedule. With Rohit's absence, the tension of Team India's think tank must have reduced somewhat.  

In Rohit's absence, KL Rahul took charge of Team India in the first Test and started the innings with Shubman Gill. Gill scored 20 runs in the first innings and 110 runs in the second innings. If Rohit had made a comeback, Shubman Gill might have had to sit outside. The decision to exclude Gill is not easy for team India's management, as he scored a brilliant century in the Chittagong Test. With Rohit's absence, it is now certain that Gill will open the innings in the Dhaka Test along with KL Rahul.
