Rohit Sharma comes out with injured hand after IND lost 7 wicket against Bangladesh

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma came to bat after India lost their 7th wicket against Bangladesh in a chase of 272 in the 2nd ODI on Wednesday. Rohit, who was taken to hospital for X-rays after hurting his left hand on second slip during the second over of the Bangladesh innings, came in after Shardul Thakur was stunned in the 43rd over.

As soon as he got to the crease, a Shakib delivery greeted him with a tap of the gloves. In the next over, he was hit on the thigh by a pitch from Ebadot Hossain. In the 46th over, however, he silenced the Bangladesh crowd when he took 2 giant sixes and a four from Hossain.

Earlier in Bangladesh’s innings, standing at second slip, Rohit was left with a bloodied hand as he dropped Mohammed Siraj’s Anamul Haque on the fourth ball of the second over. He was escorted off the field by the team physio.

He was rushed to a hospital in Dhaka for a scan and the affected area required several stitches during initial treatment. “India Captain Rohit Sharma suffered a blow to his thumb while riding cyclocross in the 2nd ODI. The BCCI Medical Team assessed him. He has now gone for scans,” the BCCI had stated in a press release.

In the match, diminutive Mehidy Hasan Miraz once again harassed the Indian bowlers en route to his maiden century as Bangladesh mounted a remarkable recovery, reaching 271 for seven.

India had Bangladesh on the mat with 69 for six before the hero of the previous match, Miraz (100 from 83 balls), stitched an epic 148-run partnership from 165 balls with Mahmudullah (77 from 96) to help the home team to a fight total to put down.

It was the highest ever seventh wicket score against India.

Miraz saved his best for the 50th over as he beat Shardul Thakur for a pair of sixes, including a nicely timed retrieval shot, before reaching three figures on the last ball of the innings.
