“Rahul getting out on 199 again?” – Twitter reacts as Gill and Rahul are likely to open for India in Tests if Rohit Sharma is unavailable

Indian national cricket team are currently involved in the ODI set-up against the Bangladesh cricket team. The first two games of the series have been done and dusted, with the hosts winning both games in a closely-fought contest.

Bangladesh won the first ODI by 1 wicket and took a 1-0 lead in the series and the hosts went on to stick to the winning template against the visitors in the second ODI as well and came out on top much to India’s annoyance.

Litton Das and Co won the game by a close margin of 5 runs and won the series by 2-0, with one more game to be played in Chattogram on December 10. After the end of the ODI series, India and Bangladesh compete with each other in the two-match Test series.

Shubman Gill and KL Rahul likely to open for India in Tests if Rohit Sharma is unavailable

During the second ODI against Bangladesh national cricket team, Rohit Sharma sustained an injury to his thumb while he was taking the catch at the slip.

He dropped the catch but was injured in the follow-through and was also seen bleeding. He went to the hospital in Mirpur and then took a couple of injections and after which, he had stitches and arrived back at the stadium after some hours.

Despite his injury, Rohit Sharma still came out to bat for India at No.9 and scored a scintillating fifty for India off just 28 balls including 3 fours and 5 sixes and sadly, he ended up on the losing side.

Meanwhile, as per the news agency, PTI, Shubman Gill and KL Rahul are likely to open the innings for Team India in Tests if Rohit Sharma is unavailable for the upcoming two-match Test series against Bangladesh.

Rohit Sharma has already been ruled out of the third and final ODI against Bangladesh which will be played on Saturday. He remains doubtful to partake in the Test series.
