Kayes ruled out of second Test

Bangladesh batsman Imrul Kayes has been ruled out of the second Test against West Indies after going down with a skin infection. He will visit a doctor later on Thursday in Gros Islet to assess whether he can travel back home soon.

"Imrul is out of the second Test," Bangladesh manager Habibul Bashar told ESPNcricinfo. "He hasn't come to the ground today. We have kept him in the hotel. We will take him to the doctor today and see if he is healthy enough to fly back home."

Kayes could not field on the last day of the first Test in St Vincent due to a skin rash, and saw two doctors there. He traveled with the team to St Lucia where he has only been in the hotel.

Anamul Haque, who is part of the Test squad, is the most likely replacement as there is very little time to get a reserve batsman from Bangladesh before the second Test begins on Saturday.
