Nurul Hasan will miss the rest of his tour of Zimbabwe because of a fractured finger

On Sunday, July 31, Bangladesh completed a convincing victory against Zimbabwe in the second T20I match played in Harare. But the victory left the visitors with a bitter taste since they will now be without their freshly selected captain Nurul Hasan because the wicketkeeper injured his finger during the game.

The three-match series began with a shocking loss for Nurul Hasan’s team in the first T20I at the same location, but they rebounded with a dominant performance on Sunday to secure a comfortable seven-wicket victory and maintain parity in the series. Hasan was chosen to lead the team during the current series in place of usual skipper Mahmuddalah, who was absent since he was taking a break.

When keeping against fast bowler Hasan Mahmud in the closing stages of Zimbabwe’s batting innings, the wicketkeeper-batter was hurt. However, the acting skipper failed to do his responsibilities behind the wicket because of severe soreness in one of his fingers. The player will miss the remaining T20I as well as the forthcoming three-match ODI series after the physio staff discovered that he broke his index finger and would require at least three weeks to recuperate.

“We took an X-ray, and it showed that the index finger was fractured. The healing process for these wounds takes around three weeks. He will consequently miss the following ODI series as well as the last T20 game on Tuesday, according to team physio Muzadded Alpha Sany.

In the second T20I, Mosaddek Hossain and Litton Das impress as Bangladesh recovers

Following their humiliating loss to the hosts in the first game of the series, Bangladesh made amends with a convincing victory in the second T20I. For his first five-wicket haul in international cricket, Mosaddek Hossain was named player of the match. The 26-year-old bowler had a career-best 5/20 to limit the visitors to a meager 135 runs in their 20 overs.

With the help of Litton Das’ sixth half-century in the format for Bangladesh, the opening batsman helped the subcontinental team easily surpass the goal set by Zimbabwe.
