Indian Cricket team suffered a heartbreaking loss in the 2nd ODI match against Bangladesh at Dhaka. The Men in Blue would be crestfallen as they couldn’t grab key moments of the match. Skipper Rohit Sharma showed immense courage as he came in to bat with an injured hand and almost won the game for a billion people.
Bangladesh would be over the moon as not many gave them a chance to win a series against a power-packed Indian Side. Skipper Litton Das was quite instrumental in his maiden stint. The team showed great fighting spirit as earlier they were in a precarious position at 69-6 and from nowhere Mahmudullah & Mehidy took the total to 271-7.
Rahul Dravid On 3rd ODI
Rahul Dravid was seen attending the post-match press conference and was asked about the injuries ahead of the 3rd ODI. “Kuldeep, Deepak and Rohit will certainly miss the next game. I think Kuldeep and Deepak are out of the series. Rohit will certainly miss the next game, will fly back to Mumbai and consult with an expert and see how it is. Whether he can come back for the Test matches or not we’re not sure. It’s too early to say at the moment but certainly in the next match the three won’t play.” said Rahul Dravid.
Rahul Dravid on Rohit Sharma
The Head Coach Rahul Dravid was asked about Rohit Sharma. “It was phenomenal. I think for him to show that level of courage. He had a serious dislocation, he had to go to hospital to get that set right, stitches in his hand, couple of injections to go out and bat.” said Rahul Dravid.
“Credit to him, he was really determined to go out and have a go and take a chance and it’s amazing how close he got us with that innings, it was an absolutely phenomenal innings by the skipper. Great courage to be able to go out there and give us a chance. Unfortunately, in the end we couldn’t get over the line.” he added.
