The BCCI confirmed Rohit’s absence from the second Test in a release and hinted that Saini would also be unable to play.
What did the BCCI say in their statements about Rohit Sharma and Navdeep Saini?
“Rohit Sharma is under the care of the BCCI Medical Team following his left thumb injury, which he sustained during the 2nd ODI against Bangladesh in Dhaka,” BCCI said in a release.
“The Medical Team is of the opinion that the injury needs some more time to heal completely before the Indian captain can bat and field with full intensity. He will continue his rehab and will not be available for the second and final Test against Bangladesh.
“Navdeep Saini is also ruled out of the second Test owing to an abdominal muscle strain. The fast bowler will now report to the NCA for further management of his injury,”
