The wicketkeeper-batsman hurt his left index finger while keeping against fast bowler Hasan Mahmud during the second T20I at the Harare Sports Club Ground on Sunday. However, Bangladesh won the match by seven wickets to level the series 1-1.

'We did an X-ray which revealed a fracture to the index finger.'

'Such injuries take about three weeks to recover from. He is therefore out of Tuesday's last T20 match and the upcoming ODI series,' he added.
