Bangladesh stumper Rahim misses remaining ODIs in New Zealand

December 28, 2016 12:36 IST

Bangladesh wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim will miss the remaining two one-day internationals against New Zealand with a hamstring injury.

Mushfiqur RahimThe first-choice stumper, also a key middle order batsman, suffered the injury during his team's defeat by 77 runs in the Boxing Day match at Christchurch.

"We are looking at two weeks, anything before is a bonus," Bangladesh coach Chandika Hathurusingha told reporters on Wednesday.

"He's been one of the form batters as well as wicketkeeper in all formats, but injuries are part and parcel of the game."

Rahim's injury cleared the decks for reserve wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan's one-day debut in the second match at Nelson on Thursday.

Beginning on January 3, Bangladesh play three Twenty20 matches in New Zealand followed by Tests at Wellington (January 12-16) and Christchurch (January 20-24).
