This Cricketer Is Likely Cover For Injured Rohit Sharma In Bangladesh Test Series
Skipper Rohit Sharma, who valiantly tried to save the ODI series despite a left thumb dislocation, is likely to be out of the Test series
India A captain Abhimanyu Easwaran is likely to be called as injured skipper Rohit Sharma's replacement for the upcoming two Test series against Bangladesh, starting in Chattogram on December 14. Skipper Rohit, who valiantly tried to save the ODI series despite a left thumb dislocation, is likely to be out of the Test series. "Abhimanyu Easwaran has scored back to back hundreds in ongoing A Test series and is an opener. In all likelihood, he will join the squad in Chattogram after finishing his second A Test in Sylhet," a senior BCCI source told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
Easwaran scored 141 in first A Test and was 144 not out at stumps on day two of the second Test.
India's bowling could have a severely depleted look as Ravindra Jadeja, who hasn't played a single match since undergoing knee surgery, will be playing the Test matches straightaway.
Surya has already confirmed that he will play Mumbai's second Ranji Trophy game this season.
