India captain Rohit Sharma has flown to Mumbai for specialist consultation and a call on his participation in the two-Test series in Bangladesh will be taken later, says BCCI secretary Jay Shah.

Rohit will miss the final ODI against Bangladesh after suffering a blow to his thumb while fielding in the slips during the second ODI in Mirpur on December 7.

"The BCCI Medical Team assessed him and he underwent scans at a local hospital in Dhaka. He has flown to Mumbai for specialist consultation and will miss the final ODI. A call on his

availability for the upcoming Test series will be taken later," Shah stated in a press release.

While the BCCI will wait for an update on the Indian skipper's availability, it can be safely concluded that with a dislocation as well as stitches, it will be near impossible for Rohit to train and then play a five-day match starting Wednesday. It is also not just about batting but also fielding.

With India having a packed schedule of white-ball games throughout January, whether the risk will be taken in a Test series against Bangladesh is there to be seen.
