Rohit Sharma is likely to miss the third ODI match against Bangladesh of the three-match series owing to injury.  

The Indian skipper Sharma split the webbing between his left thumb and index finger during the second match at the  Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur.

Standing at the second slip, Rohit was left with a bloodied hand when he dropped Anamul Haque during Mohammed Siraj's fourth ball of the second over. He was escorted off the field by the team physio.

He was then rushed to a Dhaka hospital for a scan and the affected area required multiple stitches during the initial treatment.

"India Captain Rohit Sharma suffered a blow to his thumb while fielding in the 2nd ODI. The BCCI Medical Team assessed him. He has now gone for scans," the BCCI stated in a media release.

However, Rohit did came to bat at no.9 in the second innings. His left thumb was seen to be heavily bandaged and with stitches. Even though India, lost the series by five runs, the skipper hit 51 runs off 28 balls including three boundaries an five maximums in the match. 

After the post-match presentation, the 35-year-old confirmed that there was no fracture, but some dislocation and some stitches and that is why he could play the match.

India are also set to play two-match Test series starting on the 14th of December. In such a scenario, Rohit could be racing against time to get fit for the first Test starting in Chattogram.

Moreover, India suffered another blow in the second ODI, when injury-prone seamer Deepak Chahar sustained a stiff hamstring while bowling during the game. He bowled only three overs from his quota. But Chahar to came on the field to bat and scored 11 runs of 18 balls.

Kuldeep Sen, who made his debut in the opening ODI was ruled out of the second game due to a stiff back.
