India’s Test captain Rohit Sharma has been reportedly ruled out of the second Test against Bangladesh, starting from December 22 at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, Mirpur.

Rohit missed the first Test in Chattorgram after sustaining a thumb injury during the second ODI against Bangladesh.

Rohit was expected to join the team in Mirpur, but he hasn’t recovered fully from the injury, as per the reports.

BCCI and the selection committee have decided not to take any risk. It further added that the 35-year-old is able to bat through, but the medical team remain concerned about the injury while fielding.

Rohit hence will aim to be available for the white-ball series against Sri Lanka staring January 3 where India will be playing three T20Is and as many ODIs.

India won the first Test by massive 188 runs against the host Bangladesh.
