Captain Rohit Sharma suffered a blow to his thumb while fielding in the second One Day International between India and Bangladesh at Dhaka on Wednesday. The Board of Broadcasting for Cricket in India announced that he has gone for scans after assessment by the medical team.
It was during the second over where Mohammad Siraj was bowling to Anamul Haque that the Indian captain struggled to hold on to the outside edge as it flew low and straight to him at second slip. In the process, he injured his hand and there was bleeding. Rajat Patidar came in as a fielding substitute.
Earlier in the match, Bangladesh skipper Litton Das won the toss and elected to bat first against India as they look to clinch the series in the second one-day international.
The hosts won a thrilling opener of the three-match series with one wicket to spare in Dhaka on Sunday.
They made one change with Nasum Ahmed replacing Hasan Mahmud in the XI.
India made two changes in their bid to bounce back with spinner Axar Patel and speedster Umran Malik coming in for Shahbaz Ahmed and Kuldeep Sen.
Skipper Rohit Sharma said they expect to restrict the opposition “to a decent score and bat well”.
