Mortaza Out From Bangladesh’s Tour Of Sri Lanka

Tamim Iqbal will lead Bangladesh on his journey through Sri Lanka after captain Mashrafe Mortaza has been eliminated due to injury.

The right-hander sustained an injury to the left femoral tendon during exercise. Later, it turned out to be a Class One tear that put him out of action for three to four weeks.

Tamim already has international leadership experience after hauling the tigers in a test in New Zealand in 2017 following an injury to captain Mushfiqur Rahim. However, this will be his first time in ODIs.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board declined to name a substitute in the squad that has already been announced. The teams will compete in Colombo against three ODIs on July 26, 28 and 31.
