“We did an X-ray which revealed a fracture in the index finger,” a statement from the Bangladesh Cricket Board quoted national team physio Mujadadi Alfa as saying.
“Such injuries take about three weeks to heal. So he has been ruled out of Tuesday’s final T20I match and the upcoming ODI series,” he said.
The three-match T20 series is currently tied at 1-1, with Zimbabwe winning the opening match by 17 runs.
A BCB spokesman told AFP that the captain for Tuesday’s series decider would be announced in due course.
