Ahead of the three-match ODI series against India, the Bangladesh cricket team has suffered a massive blow after their captain Tamim Iqbal has been ruled out due to a groin injury, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) said in a statement.

“Tamim has a grade 1 strain on the right groin which has been confirmed following an MRI. We will maintain a conservative treatment protocol for him for two weeks after which his rehab will begin,” Bayiedul Islam, Bangladesh’s team physio, said.

“Unfortunately, this means he will not be available for the ODI series.”

Tamim, 33, is also doubtful for the Test series.
