India Playing XI 2nd ODI: India vs Bangladesh 2nd ODI LIVE: Shardul Thakur is the victim of another injury that India must deal with. During his first ODI spell, the pacer was in pain. As per reports, InsideSport is aware that he is bothered by something. The medical staff will nevertheless assess the seriousness of his condition and make a decision regarding his availability.
In the second ODI, Umran Malik, who recently joined the team, will be available for selection. Umran is likely to enter if the team management does not want to take a chance on Shardul.
Despite the cold and dry conditions during the first ODI in Dhaka, Shardul Thakur frequently experienced cramps. But given that the upcoming Test series, which is a muscle niggle, the team management may decide not to risk him. Mohammad Shami is unlikely to be ready for the Test series, it should be noted.
