Bangladesh opener Nazim out of Australia series
Tuesday, 19 August 2008

DHAKA, Aug 18 (bdnews24.com/Reuters) - Bangladesh opening batsman Nazim Uddin has been ruled out of the one-day series in Australia starting this month due to a finger injury, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) said on Monday.

"Nazim has torn one of the tendons on his left ring finger during the pre-match warm up of the practice game against the Australian Institute of Sports in Darwin today," it said in a statement.

"The injury would require six to eight weeks of immobilization in a splint," it said. He will fly home and the team management has asked for a replacement.

The 23-year-old batsman, who has scored just 90 runs in seven one-day internationals, was included only after fellow opener Shahriar Nafees opted out to attend exams.

Bangladesh play five warm-up matches ahead of the series, to be played in Darwin on Aug.30, Sept.3 and 6.
