India Captain Rohit Sharma has been sent to the hospital for scans after suffering a blow to his hand while fielding in the second ODI against Bangladesh at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka on Wednesday.
The 35-year-old is now likely to miss the third ODI after suffering a split-webbing between his left thumb and index finger.
The incident took place in the second over when Anamul Haque fended a Mohammed Siraj length ball to the cordon, where Rohit dropped the catch at second slip and left the field afterwards. Rajat Patidar was out to sub for him.
It is believed some further scans will be required to ascertain if there is a fracture. The Indian captain could be racing against time to get fit for the first Test against Bangladesh, starting in Chattogram from December 14.
India trails Bangladesh 0-1 in the three-match ODI series.
India is currently in fourth place in the WTC standings, and has a good chance of making the final should it win its remaining six Tests in the cycle. The Bangladesh Tests will be followed by four against Australia early next year.
