India players ruled out of final ODI
After India Captain Rohit Sharma is injured, the BCCI issues an update. Rohit will almost certainly miss the next game, fly back to Bombay, consult with an expert, and determine whether he can return for the Test matches or not. That is too soon to say. Deepak Chahar, who only bowled three overs in the second ODI in Dhaka, and Kuldeep Sen, who missed the match on Wednesday, were both ruled out of the final ODI. For sure, none of them will play in the next game “Dravid spoke after India’s narrow loss to Rohit Sharma’s late heroics.

It was incredible “Dravid commented on Rohit’s knock. For him to demonstrate that level of bravery. He had a serious dislocation and had to go to the hospital to get it fixed, stitches in his hand, and a couple of injections before he could go out and bat. He was really determined to go out there and have a go and take a chance, and its amazing how close he got us with that innings, it was an absolutely phenomenal innings by the skipper. It takes a lot of guts to go out there and give us a chance.
