DHAKA: Bangladesh opening batsman Shadman Islam has been ruled out of the second and final Test against the West Indies due to a hip injury.
Shadman suffered a hip injury during an awkward fall while fielding on Day Four of the first Test in Chattogram, a match which West Indies won by three wickets riding on a brilliant hundred by Kyle Mayers on debut.
In a statement, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) on Wednesday said Shadman has been making a "good recovery" but the BCB medical team has suggested "resting him for the second Test until he is fully fit to resume playing".
He will leave the team bio-security bubble and will be under the surveillance and treatment of the BCB medical team as he undergoes rehabilitation, the board further said. (IANS)
