Bangladesh ODI skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza have been ruled out of Sri Lanka tour with a hamstring injury. He got injured during the last day of training today with the Tigers set to depart for Sri Lanka tomorrow for a three-match ODI series. BCB chief selector Minhajul Abedin later confirmed that Farhad Reza has been included in the side as Mashrafe’s replacement.

During a press conference today before the practice session began, the skipper reiterated that he was feeling quite okay but then during a bowling session, he suffered what appeared to be a hamstring injury.

“He pulled his hamstring during training today. We are yet to receive the medical report but at the moment it looks difficult for him to play in the series. We have decided to include Farhad Reza as his replacement,” said Minhajul.

BCB will officially announce the captain for the Sri Lanka tour tomorrow.
