Bangladesh Test skipper Mushfiqur Rahim is a doubtful starter for the one-off Test against India as the finger injury he sustained during the first Test against Pakistan last month hasn’t healed and the reports show that it might take time for him to get fully-fit. 

Rahim, who injured the third finger on his right hand during the Khulna Test, played the second Test without being 100% fit and that aggravated his injury. 

During an interview with Daily Star Newspaper, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) physician Debashis Chowdhury said: 

“Since he was complaining of pain we did the necessary medical examinations again on his right hand. 

“The report confirmed that the internal damage is yet to completely heal and that’s why the swelling and the pain is still there. We have advised him to take full rest for one week before further assessment.” 

Chowdhury also revealed that fast-bowler Rubel Hossain, who missed the second Test against Pakistan due to side-strain, will not be considered for the selection unless he attains the desired level of fitness. 

“He (Rubel) is not fully fit. Rubel could not reach our expected level of fitness today, so we can not declare him 100 percent fit. 

“He has failed to achieve the desired level of fitness on time as he missed few important sessions owing to his personal problems,” Chowdhury concluded. 

Bangladesh are scheduled to play a one-off Test against India from June 8 before both teams head to Mirpur for a three-match ODI series (June 18, 21 and 24).
