Rohit Sharma gives an update on his thumb injury
Rohit revealed in the post-game press conference that although his thumb was not in great shape, he was still able to bat because there was no fracture.
Honestly, the thumb is not too great. Some dislocation on the finger, but not a fracture, which is why I could come and bat. I think when you lose a game, there are positives and negatives.
