Mushfiqur to miss ODI and T-20 series for injury
Sports Correspondent: Bangladesh Test captain and wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim has been sidelined for at least two weeks due to an injury to his left hamstring.
In his place, wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan has been called for his ODI debut in Nelson on Thursday.
He will miss the remainder of the ODI series and the three T20s against New Zealand and is a doubtful starter for the two Tests that follow as well.
Mushfiqur had pulled his hamstring while batting in the first ODI on Boxing Day while diving to complete a single. He had later retired hurt on 42.
Nurul Hasan will become only the 12th wicketkeeper to make his ODI debut for Bangladesh, and the fifth to replace Mushfiqur since his debut in 2006. The others were Dhiman Ghosh, Jahurul Islam, Anamul Haque and Liton Das.
