Bangladesh opening batsman Imrul Kayes will miss the lonely Test against India in Hyderabad following a thigh discomfort.

The 30-year-old's injury occurred during the tour game against India A when he was fielding at Gymkhana ground.

Kayes had a similar injury in New Zealand which kept him out of the second Test in Christchurch and in his absence it was Soumya Sarkar, who opened the innings for Bangladesh and he will expected to do a similar role when they lock horns with Virat Kohli's men on 9th February.

Mosaddek Hossain, who has played eight One-Day Internationals and four Twenty20 Internationals for Bangladesh previously has been called as a replacement for Kayes.

In the recently concluded tour game against India A, Bangladesh scored 224 runs in the first innings with fifties from Sarkar and Mushfiqur Rahim but conceded 461 runs despite three-wicket hauls from Subashis Roy and Taijul Islam.
