Bangladesh paceman Rubel out, as Pakistan play final Test tomorrow
DHAKA – Bangladesh fast bowler Rubel Hossain has been ruled out of the second test match against Pakistan starting on Wednesday due to a side strain, the country’s cricket board said.
Pakistan is set to play the second Test on Wednesday with pretty much the similar team as that of the Khulna Test.
ubel will be replaced by paceman Abul Hasan, who has played three tests for Bangladesh, the last more than two years ago against Sri Lanka. Rubel injured himself during the fourth day of the first test in Khulna, which ended in a draw, and a scan confirmed a Grade 1 left side strain.
Earlier, Pakistan and Bangladesh drew the opening Test match.
