Skipper Rohit Sharma, who valiantly tried to save the ODI series despite a left thumb dislocation, is likely to be out of the Test series. Abhimanyu Easwaran scored 141 in the only Indian innings of the first A Test and 157 in the 1st innings of the ongoing 2nd India A Test against Bangladesh A.
Ahead of the final ODI vs Bangladesh, injuries are the main concern for Team India. As of now, at least three players are confirmed to miss the third and final ODI of the series. Skipper Rohit Sharma was among the three players confirmed by head Rahul Dravid to miss the third ODI against Bangladesh as he will head to Mumbai to consult an expert.

Pacer Deepak Chahar, who only bowled three overs in the second ODI in Dhaka, was also ruled out of the final ODI as was fellow pacer Kuldeep Sen, who missed the match on Wednesday.
Bangladesh were able to continue their streak of not losing an ODI series at home since 2016 after surviving a scare from Rohit Sharma in the second ODI. They are without Tamim Iqbal, their regular skipper, and one can only imagine how deadly they would be with him back. Their fastest bowler, Taskin Ahmed, is also absent.
The skipper Rohit Sharma copped an injury to his finger in Bangladesh’s batting innings while attempting a catch. The ball hit his thumb and he was seen bleeding as he walked off. The BCCI later confirmed he had gone for scans after the BCCI medical team assessed him.
However, with India in dire straits in the run chase, Rohit Sharma walked out to bat at No.9, slamming an unbeaten 51 off just 28 balls to take India to the brink of an unlikely win. He hit a six with 12 runs needed off two balls, but could only manage a single off the final ball as Bangladesh wrapped up a series victory with the five-run win.

Mehidy Hasan Miraz was the hero in both the games, scoring a vital unbeaten 38 off 39 balls as Bangladesh won by 1 wicket in a thriller in the 1st ODI while scoring a ton (100* off 83 balls) in the 2nd ODI. He was awarded Man of the Match in both the games. He may be rested for the 3rd ODI with the series already won by Bangladesh.
