Injured Abul Hasan Ruled Out Of Last Three ODIs
Bangladesh will have to do without the services of all-rounder Abul Hasan as they try to protect their 2-0 One-Day International series lead over the West Indies.
Hasan, who shot to prominence by scoring a century making his Test debut at number 10, also against the West Indies, suffered a side strain during his side's 160-run win in the second game in Khulna.
Abul made his debut in the first match of the series although failed to take a wicket in either match and was not required to bat.
As a result of his injury, he has been ruled out of the rest of the series and has been replaced in the squad by Khulna Division all-rounder Ziaur Rahman, who has played eight Twenty20 Internationals but is as yet uncapped at ODI level.

The blow comes just two days after influential all-rounder and former captain Shakib Al Hasan was also ruled out of the series with a stress fracture to his right leg. He had originally been ruled out for the first two matches but could now be on the sidelines for up to six weeks.
Bangladesh opened the seies with a measured run chase and a seven-wicket win before their 160-run win in the second match was a record victory margin for them.
The third game is in Mirpur on Wednesday 5th December.
