Bangladesh opening batsman Anamul Haque will miss the one-off Twenty20 against Sri Lanka on Sunday, as he is set to return home after Thursday's ODI to sit for his college exams. Anamul, 20, has informed the Bangladesh Cricket Board that he would also be unavailable for the tour of Zimbabwe, which runs from April 17 to May 12.

No replacement has been named for Anamul for the Sri Lanka T20.

Abul Hasan, the fast bowler who had to sit out the second and third ODIs with a side strain, will remain with the squad. Sending him home as well was discussed, but decided against as that would have left Bangladesh with a squad of just 12 for the Twenty20.

Earlier, Bangladesh had already lost batsman Tamim Iqbal and fast bowler Nazmul Hossain for the limited-overs leg of the Sri Lanka tour. Tamim had played in the first ODI, scoring a century as Bangladesh were asked to bat first. Then, while fielding, he had fractured his right thumb. Uncapped right-hand batsman Shamsur Rahman was called in as a replacement.

Nazmul had been ruled out of the ODI series after injuring his left knee during training in Colombo. Nazmul twisted his knee while avoiding a straight drive from Ziaur Rahman during a net session, on what would have been the fifth day of the second Test.

Education is important. It adds value to a cricketer-,i.e, Imran Khan, Majid Khan, Javed Burki, Mike Artherton and list goes on and on, We have clearly noticed the difference while the cricketers face the interview, Hence, no compromise with basic education. obaid hoque, dhaka

Govt. should focus on these examine e , as they are playing for the nation. there must be an exception for these players. They will be able to sit for exam after the tour or else nation n world will be deprived of good players from team.

These exams in Bangladesh last forever. And then it takes months to get the results. Anamul is having a good run of form now. I would advise him to continue playing. he can write the exam next year. As a professional cricketer he should be focussed on cricket only. A HSC degree and even a bachelor's means nothing in a country of millions; where a B.A. is worth nothing at all. He can make more hay as a established cricketer and a regular on the national side. With this break he could lose his place for good and that will be an incalculable loss. His advisers should think before they counsel him.

Anamul is a good player for the future, but it is good for the Bangladesh team if he leaves. Shamsur will probably do better with the bat. Ashraful has already scored all the runs he is capable of scoring for 2013, I highly doubt he will score much this year.

In Sha Allah Anamul Haque will achieve the top marks in his exams and become successful both in his course and in his cricket career
