India captain Rohit Sharma has been ruled out of the ongoing Bangladesh tour due to a finger injury, confirmed by head coach Rahul Dravid.

Debutant pacer Kuldeep Sen and Deepak Chahar will also travel back to the country.

"Rohit Sharma will miss the 3rd ODI, he will fly back to Mumbai to consult an expert. Kuldeep Sen & Deepak Chahar are out of the series," Dravid said in post-match press conference.

The incident occurred during the second over of Bangladesh's innings. India’s skipper attempted to take a low catch of Anamul Haque, but instead, Rohit failed to cling onto the ball.

The right-hand batter immediately went off the field, and later taken to hospital. Rohit did not open the batting but came in with a strapped glove after the fall of the 7th wicket.

However, could not save his side from the face of defeat as Bangladesh clinched the second match by 5 runs.
