IND vs BAN: Rohit Sharma’s bravery is being praised, but Gavaskar raised questions

Rohit Sharma played an unbeaten inning of 51 runs in 28 balls.
Rohit Sharma’s thumb was injured while fielding.
New Delhi. We have seen Rohit Sharma opening as an opener for years, but on Wednesday (December 7) he came out to bat at number 9. The Indian team needed him and he supported his team by showing bravery despite a thumb injury. Batting at number 9, the Indian batsman played an explosive inning of 51 runs in 28 balls, but India failed to win. In such a situation, former India captain and great batsman Sunil Gavaskar praised Rohit’s courageous innings, but at the same time questioned that if he had to bat, why didn’t he do it a little earlier?
Sunil Gavaskar said during a discussion on Sony Sports Network, “Everyone knows about the quality and class of Rohit Sharma. Since India came so close, the question is why didn’t they come out to bat first? If he is going to bat at number 9, he should have batted at number 7. That’s what I think he could do. Akshar Patel could have played a little differently.
IND vs BAN: Rahul Dravid said after the defeat, it is not easy to go from one format to another…
He further said, “When Akshar saw that it was Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar coming, he was probably thinking that maybe Rohit Sharma is not going to bat. And that’s why he played the shot. When he was in that state, there was no need to play that shot. If Rohit had come at the other end, Akshar would have batted differently. The way he was batting, who knew the result could have been different.”

Please tell that Rohit Sharma’s thumb was injured while fielding during the second ODI against Bangladesh. He was catching a ball in the slips and in the process the ball hit his left thumb and started bleeding. The Indian captain immediately left the field. He was taken to the hospital, where he learned that the finger had dislocated and needed stitches. Hours later, when India were struggling to chase down a target of 272, he put on his pads and walked out to bat.
India will now play the third and final ODI in Chittagong. India only needs a consolation win in this match as the series is out of their hands. The team will play the third ODI without Rohit Sharma. Head coach Rahul Dravid has confirmed that the injury will keep the Indian skipper out of action for at least the next game. Fast bowler Deepak Chahar and Kuldeep Sen will also be missed.
