The 35-year-old was fielding in the slip cordon during the first innings of the match when right-arm pacer Mohammed Siraj drew an outside edge from Anamul Haque. The ball went toward Rohit Sharma and he was unable to grab the catch. Also, in the process, he ended up hurting his thumb.

Rohit was seen in pain after the blow and he quickly walked off the field to get some treatment. The Madhya Pradesh batter Rajat Patidar replaced the Indian captain on the field.
