Nurul Hasan, the captain of Bangladesh, is unable to continue the Zimbabwe tour due to a fractured finger.

Following a finger injury sustained during his team’s seven-wicket victory in the second T20I in Harare on Sunday, Nurul Hasan, Bangladesh’s new T20I captain, was forced to withdraw from the rest of the Zimbabwe tour. According to team physio Muzadded Alpha Sany, Nurul fractured his left index finger while batting against fast bowler Hasan Mahmud.

Although the BCB hasn’t named the captain for the third T20I, Litton Das, who captained Bangladesh in a single T20I last year, is most likely to serve in that capacity.

“We took an X-ray, and it showed that the index finger was fractured. The healing process for these wounds takes about three weeks. He would therefore miss the final T20 game on Tuesday and the forthcoming ODI series “In a video message, Sany stated.The event happened near the conclusion of Zimbabwe’s inning. Nurul kept playing wicketkeeper but appeared to be in pain.

Mahmudullah, the previous captain, was rested for the T20I series against Zimbabwe as a result of the change in leadership, and Nurul was appointed captain. After losing by 17 runs in the first T20I, Bangladesh recovered to win the second match handily and tie the series at one game each.

In Harare, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh will play the third and final T20I on Tuesday. Three ODIs will follow in August.

The first T20I of the three-match series ended in a surprise defeat for Nurul Hasan’s team at the same venue, but they bounced back with a strong showing on Sunday to win easily by seven wickets and keep the series equal. Hasan was selected to take over as team captain for the current series in place of Mahmuddalah, who was not present since he was taking a break.

The wicketkeeper-batter was hurt while keeping against fast bowler Hasan Mahmud in the last stages of Zimbabwe’s batting innings. However, due to excruciating pain in one of his fingers, the acting skipper was unable to do his duties behind the wicket.Bangladesh made up for their humiliating loss to the hosts in the first game of the series by prevailing easily in the second T20I. Mosaddek Hossain won player of the game honours after taking five wickets for the first time in international cricket. With a career-high 5/20, the 26-year-old bowler held the visitors to to 135 runs in their 20 overs.
