In the second over of the first innings, Rohit Sharma sustained a thumb injury while fielding in the slip cordon and walked off the field in pain to get some treatment. KL Rahul, the designated vice-captain, took over the captaincy responsibility in the absence of Rohit.

Notably, the 35-year-old was fielding at second slip when the right-arm pacer Mohammed Siraj drew an outside edge from Bangladesh opener Anamul Haque. The ball went towards Rohit Sharma, but he could not hold on as the ball dipped on him, even though he got both hands to it and in the process, he ended up hurting his thumb.
