Indian players Rohit Sharma, Deepak Chahar, and Kuldeep Sen have been ruled out of the last ODI match against Bangladesh owing to various reasons.
Chahar, Sen, and Rohit Ruled Out of 3rd ODI vs Bangladesh
India have already lost the 3-match ODI series after 2 narrow defeats in the first 2 ODIs. During the India tour of Bangladesh 2022, both teams are scheduled to play 3 ODIs and 2 Tests.
India lost the first match by 1 wicket while Bangladesh beat India byb 5 runs in the second ODI match.
“Kuldeep, Deepak, and Rohit will certainly miss the next game. Kuldeep and Deepak are out of the series, and Rohit as well will certainly miss the next game, fly back to Bombay, consult with an expert and see how it is and whether he can come back for the Test matches or not, I’m not sure.
It’s too soon to say that. But all three of them won’t play the next game for sure”, Dravid said after the game which India lost narrowly after Rohit’s late heroics.
Indian captain Rohit Sharma injured himself while fielding in the first inning and walked away where KL Rahul led the team in his absence. In a crucial situation, Rohit walked back in the lower order and shifted the game towards a great victory but failed to reach the glory.

“It [the thumb] is not too great. There was a bit of dislocation on the finger and some stitches. Luckily, it’s not a fracture and so that’s a good thing, that’s a positive, which is why I could come out and bat.”
“Phenomenal for him to show that courage. He had a dislocation and had to go to the hospital to get it set, stitches in hand, couple of injections. Credit to him he went out and give us a chance,” Dravid said in the post-match presentation.
Dravid On Shreyas Iyer’s Innings
Right after India lost their opening duo, Shreyas Iyer made a stand and scored 82 runs before dismissing in 35th over bowled by Mehidy Hasan Miraz.
Speaking about Iyer’s innings he said, “Yeah it was crucial. The partnership with Axar was beautiful. The result would have been different if they had batted for 30-40 runs but they played well and brought us back into the game.”
The last and final ODI match will be played on December 10 in Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram.
