Rohit Sharma will not play in the Dhaka Test due to injury

The second Test match between Bangladesh and India, which begins on December 22 in Mirpur, will not include Rohit Sharma. The India captain won't be making the trip to Dhaka after missing the first Test in Chattogram. In his absence, the squad would be led by vice-captain KL Rahul in the second and final Test of the series, which India leads 1-0.

The fact that Rohit's thumb, which was hurt during the second ODI of the current trip, has not entirely healed, led to the news of his unavailability on Monday (December 19). There is a slight rigidity about him that is apparent. The BCCI, the selection committee, and the team management have chosen not to risk him at this time in light of the significant duties that will be coming up for the Indian team.

According to information, Rohit, who is currently in Mumbai, would have been able to bat for the entire Test, but uncertainty lingered regarding the risk associated with fielding. If he sustains another thumb injury, the medical staff and team management thought that it might become serious on the pitch. Rahul had responded that he was still awaiting the specifics when questioned about the chances of Rohit's availability for the second Test. At the press conference following the first Test on Sunday, the vice-captain had stated, "We may be able to know in the next day or two, even I am not aware of it."

He appears to be available for the white ball series against Sri Lanka (three T20Is and three ODIs).

In the second ODI, Rohit was struck on the thumb while attempting to take a catch in the slips. On December 7, the BCCI medical staff examined him and immediately sent him to Mumbai for treatment. Since then, he has been receiving treatment in the city.


Before the second Test, the team management was having a difficult time choosing which player to leave out, but Rohit's absence may have provided a solution. Shubman Gill's first Test century helped India win the first Test by 188 runs, but KL Rahul, the other opener and acting captain, struggled to find the strike zone.

There is no advice for the selection committee on the next Ranji games.

In other news, Cricbuzz has learned through BCCI sources that the Chetan Sharma selection committee members have not received any advice on the second round of the Ranji games, which begin on Tuesday. The first round of matches were watched by the selectors, who will soon be replaced by a new committee. As of Monday morning, there was also no information available regarding the interviews for the new selection committee. However, they are anticipated to happen sooner rather than later.


Cricket Betting

Cricket is a highly well-liked sport in India, and many people like placing bets on cricket games. It is crucial to remember that the majority of India forbids sports betting. The lone exception is Sikkim, where sports betting is legal as long as specific requirements are met. Sports betting activities might be considered illegal in several states and can have serious legal repercussions.


Given that gambling can be addicting and cause financial difficulties, it is also crucial to be aware of the risks involved. If you do decide to bet on cricket, it is crucial to do it responsibly and to establish boundaries for yourself to prevent you from going overboard. In order to make educated selections regarding your bets, it is also a good idea to become familiar with the game's rules and guidelines as well as the numerous betting possibilities that are offered.
