Dhaka: Seamer Mohammed Shami was ruled out of India’s three-match one-day international series in Bangladesh with a shoulder injury on Saturday with Umran Malik replacing him in the squad.

“...Shami sustained a shoulder injury during a training session in the lead up to the ODI series against Bangladesh,” the visiting team said in a statement a day before the series gets underway in Dhaka on Sunday.

Malik, 23, is an exciting pace prospect who has played three one-dayers and as many T20 Internationals since making his India debut this year.

Groin injury

Bangladesh have had their own injury concerns with regular ODI captain Tamim Iqbal missing the series with a groin injury.

Litton Das will captain the home side who will also miss the service of Taskin Ahmed in Sunday’s match after the seamer sustained a back injury.

Rohit Sharma and his men are also scheduled to play two Tests in Bangladesh.
