Bangladesh skipper Tamim Iqbal has been ruled out of the ODIs against India with a groin injury while fast bowler Taskin Ahmed will miss the first ODI with a back injury.

Tamim has a grade one strain on his right groin and is also doubtful for the Test series that follows the three-match ODI series according to a report on ESPNCricinfo.

The Bangladesh skipper picked up the injury during a warm-up match ahead of the ODI series that begins on December 4 in Dhaka.

Taskin, meanwhile, will miss the first ODI with a back injury that he suffered during a BCL match earlier last month. The fast bowler was a key figure in Bangladesh's ICC Men's T20 World Cup campaign in Australia.

"Tamim has a Grade 1 strain on his right groin which has been confirmed following an MRI," Bangladesh team physio Bayjedul Islam Khan said.

"We will maintain a conservative treatment protocol for him for two weeks after which his rehab will begin. Unfortunately it means he will not be available for the ODI series and will be doubtful for the Test series."

The three-match ODI series begins on December 4 in Dhaka. The second ODI will also be played at the same venue on December 7 before the final ODI shifts to Chattogram on December 10.

The Test matches will be played in Chattogram and Dhaka and will kick off from December 14.
