Nayeem Hasan is set to miss the second Test against Sri Lanka because of a finger injury.
Nayeem had injured the middle finger of his right hand in the opening Test of the two-match series. On subsequent examination it was found that he had fractured his finger and will be out of action for about three to four weeks.
The timeline could also rule him out the Test series against West Indies, which begins on 16 June.
"Nayeem is certainly ruled out from the second Test against Sri Lanka as he fractured his finger," said Debashish Chowdhury, the Bangladesh cricket team's chief physician.
"He will need at least three to four weeks to recover and taking that into consideration it looks he is unlikely to make in the West Indies Test squad."
Nayeem, who fractured his finger while fielding on the fourth day, was the highest wicket-taker in the Test, and had picked up six wickets in the first innings.
The second Test begins in Dhaka on 23 May. first Test in Chattogram was a draw.
