Injured Bangladesh pacer Shohidul ruled out of West Indies tour

Bangladesh fast bowler Shohidul Islam has been ruled out of the upcoming tour of West Indies due to side strain, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) selector Minhajul Abedin confirmed on Tuesday.

Shohidul, who made his debut against Pakistan in the T20I series last year, was included in the Test and T20 squads for the upcoming tour, which also includes a three-match ODI series.

The 22-year old Hasan Mahmud is likely to replace Shohidul in the tour, subject to clearing his physical fitness, Cricbuzz report said.

Hasan suffered from a stiff back and had to return midway from the New Zealand tour in January 2021.
