Team India's star fast bowler Shardul Thakur was injured while bowling in the first ODI.

IND Vs BAN: Before the second match of the three ODI series being played against Bangladesh, India has suffered another major setback. Actually, India's star fast bowler Shardul Thakur has been injured and his playing in the second ODI has become doubtful. If Shardul Thakur is not fit, then Umran Malik can be included in the team in his place. Please tell that in the last match, Shardul Thakur performed brilliantly and one wicket was also a blow.

Got injured during the first match

Actually, Shardul Thakur was injured while bowling in the first ODI between India and Bangladesh played in Dhaka on Sunday. The BCCI medical team has kept an eye on Shardul's injury. The team management does not want to take any risk with Shardul Thakur, so a call will be taken about his playing before the match. If Shardul is not 100 percent fit, then he will be kept out of the second ODI. On the other hand, Umran Malik, who joined the team after Mohammad Shami's injury, is fully fit to play. There is every possibility that in the event of Shardul Thakur not playing, Umran Malik will be made a part of the playing XI.

Team India's difficulties may increase

The difficulties of the Indian team that went on Bangladesh tour are not going to end. The team is troubled by many injured players at this time. There is also a problem in front of the team management regarding the fitness of Akshar Patel. No information has been revealed about Akshar Patel's fitness yet. A decision will be taken regarding the playing of Akshar Patel just before the match. If Akshar Patel gets fit then he can replace Shahbaz Ahmed in the playing XI. Apart from this, in the second ODI as well, KL Rahul will be seen handling the wicketkeeping duties as Rishabh Pant has also been released from the team due to injury. Although Rishabh Pant can play in the Test series against Bangladesh.
