Experienced batsman Mushfiqur Rahim will be sidelined for the upcoming Test series against Sri Lanka due to a thumb injury sustained during Monday’s third One Day International against the visitors in Chittagong.

National team physio, Bayjedul Islam Khan, confirmed that Mushfiq incurred a ball contusion on his right thumb early in the innings while keeping.

He said: “After the match, Mushfiq underwent an X-ray examination in Dhaka, which revealed an avulsion fracture on the MIP joint of his right thumb.

“He is currently undergoing conservative management for his injury and is expected to be sidelined for around three to four weeks, consequently ruling him out of participation in the Test series against Sri Lanka.”

The national selection panel of the Bangladesh Cricket Board will name a replacement for Mushfiq soon.
