It has been confirmed that Rohit Sharma has been ruled out of the upcoming Test match in Dhaka due to an injury suffered during the recent series against Afghanistan. Sharma had sustained the injury while fielding during the third and last Test match between the two sides.

The BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) had earlier confirmed the injury and had stated that they were awaiting an assessment of its seriousness before deciding on a further course of action. It has now been decided that Sharma will not be a part of the Dhaka Test starting on February 12 and will instead return to India.

The 32-year old top-order batsman had put in impressive performances during the Afghanistan series, having scored 42, 91 and 47 in the three matches. He had also scored a century in the first tour game against them. He has been a consistent performer for India over the past decade and has scored 6,259 runs in Tests, 8,351 in ODIs and 2,285 in T20Is.

It is unfortunate that the veteran batsman has been ruled out of the Test match due to injury and the Indian team will certainly miss his skills and experience. The team is already missing the likes of Shikhar Dhawan and Hardik Pandya who had also been ruled out due to injury and have been back in India for some time.

As of now, no news has been released on who may replace Sharma in the Test squad, although the team management has been given enough time to make their choice ahead of the match.

Injured Rohit Ruled Out of Dhaka Test

India’s star opener, Rohit Sharma, has been ruled out of the upcoming Test match in Dhaka due to an injury. This has come as a big blow to the Indian cricket team, which was relying heavily on the star opener for the match.

Cause of Injury

Rohit Sharma suffered the injury during a practice session ahead of the Test match. He felt a severe pain in his back and was rushed to the hospital for scans and treatment. The scans revealed a slight muscle tear, which led the medical team to take the decision of ruling him out of the match. It is unclear how long the injury will take to heal, but the medical team will continue to monitor the situation.

Impact on Indian Team

The loss of Rohit Sharma has dealt a huge blow to the Indian cricket team, as they were heavily relying on him to produce the necessary runs in the match. Rohit has been in great form lately and had scored three centuries in the last three Test matches he played.

Without Rohit in the team, the responsibility of providing the runs now lies with the other Indian batsmen. The team will now have to look for a suitable replacement for him in the batting line-up.

Replacement Options

The Indian management has a few options they can consider while looking for a suitable replacement. The options include:

  • Ajinkya Rahane: Rahane is an experienced batsman who has shown great consistency in the longest format of the game. He is a dependable player and has the knack for playing attacking cricket.
  • Ravindra Jadeja: Jadeja is a handy all-rounder who can provide his team with both runs and wickets. He has been in great form lately and has the ability to make match-winning contributions with both bat and ball.
  • Shubman Gill: Gill is an exciting young prospect who has the potential to be a star in the future. Despite his inexperience, he has the talent to produce match-winning contributions for his team.

Rohit Sharma’s injury has come as a big setback for the Indian cricket team. The responsibility now lies with the management to find a suitable replacement for the star opener. The team will now have to put in extra effort in order to make up for the loss of their star opener.
