Ajay Jadeja’s Comments
During a conversation with Star Sports, Ajay Jadeja started out by saying “Tabhi toh bol raha hu Rohit ko bolo ghar me baithne keliye (That is why I suggest Rohit should stay at home).”
He further went on to say that “When a player suffers a hand fracture and you cannot hold the bat for about 10 days, even if you recover, you cannot really join the team the very next day. It takes another 1- to 15 days. And we don’t even know the extent of the injury yet. That is why I suggest this. We are looking for a temporary solution and this is the best solution for it.”

What’s Up for Grabs in the Second Test against Bangladesh
However, the victory was led by interim captain KL Rahul because Rohit had left for Mumbai after leaving the second ODI with a finger injury. Shubman Gill and KL Rahul have opened for India during his absence.
Gill may have to sit out despite scoring a century, though, given reports of Rohit’s potential return. In addition, he could have been accommodated in the middle. But with Pujara also participating in the runs, this situation seems unlikely.
