    During the second over of the BAN vs IND 2nd ODI match, India’s captain Rohit Sharma dropped a catch while fielding in the slip cordon and he also pulled out a webbing on his left hand thumb. The Indian skipper was seen bleeding a lot which eventually forced him to leave the field immediately. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) posted on Twitter suffered a blow on his thumb and was taken to the hospital for further scans. He was seen supporting a taped thumb while sitting in the dressing room as Bangladesh was batting and they managed to post a challenging total of 271 for 7 even after getting reduced to 69/6 in 19 overs.

    In a really surprising development, Virat Kohli has come out to open the batting alongside Shikhar Dhawan during the second ODI match against Bangladesh.
