Fast bowler Taskin Ahmed has been ruled out of Bangladesh A's tour of India because of a side strain he suffered during the first one-dayer in Bangalore. Taskin will return home and be replaced by 23-year old seamer Kamrul Islam Rabbi.
Taskin did not bowl after his initial five-over spell, during which he dismissed India A captain Unmukt Chand. The injury was to his left side, which he had injured during an ODI against India in June. He had been ruled out for three weeks at the time before recovering for this Bangladesh A tour.
His replacement, Rabbi, is a right-arm pace bowler who played for Bangladesh A last year against Zimbabwe A at home. He took 21 first-class wickets this year at an average of 54.47 and has 15 wickets from 11 List A matches in the 2014-15 season.
