Deccan Chronicle - - Cricket -

Dhaka: Bangladesh suf­fered a fresh in­jury blow ahead of next week’s one-day in­ter­na­tional se­ries against New Zealand Satur­day, after the Bangladesh Cricket Board said all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan had been ruled out with a fin­ger frac­ture. Shakib sus­tained the in­jury to his left ring fin­ger while bat­ting in the fi­nal of the sixth edi­tion of Bangladesh Pre­mier League Twenty20 tour­na­ment on Fri­day evening, said the BCB. An X-ray fol­low­ing the match con­firmed a frac­ture, and the fin­ger will “have to be im­mo­bilised for around three weeks,” said se­nior BCB physi­cian De­bashis Chowd­hury. This was the sec­ond in­jury blow for Bangladesh ahead of the visit, which fea­tured three one­day in­ter­na­tion­als and three Tests. Pace bowler Taskin Ahmed was ear­lier ruled out for the en­tire se­ries with a torn lig­a­ment and had been re­placed by Shafiul Is­lam for the ODIs and un­capped Ebadot Hos­sain for Test se­ries.
