Bangladesh skipper Tamim Iqbal has been ruled out of the upcoming three-match ODI series against India. The left-handed batter sustained a groin injury in a warm-up match at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka on Wednesday, November 30.

If reports are to be believed, the Chattogram-born batter has been advised rest for two weeks to return to fitness. The injury also puts in doubt Tamim’s participation in the first Test of the two-match series that gets underway on December 14 at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.

Tigers’ pacer Taskin Ahmed also won’t be available for the

opening game of the ODI series. The speedster was recovering from a back injury, but won’t be able to play in the first match. It remains to be seen if Taskin gets fit for the remaining two ODIs of the series.

"Taskin is out of the first ODI and we will know about his availability for the rest of the ODI series only after another fitness test," Minhajul Abedin, Bangladesh cricket’s chief selector, was quoted as saying in ESPNcricinfo.

The opening ODI of the series is scheduled to take place on Sunday, December 4 in Dhaka. The second and third matches will take place on December 7 and 10 respectively.
