Tendon injury on left finger forces Bangla opener Nazim Uddin to skip Australia tourDhaka: Finger injury incurred during a tour game forced Bangla opener Nazim Uddin to skip the three-match ODI series in Australia starting this month, the Bangla Cricket Board (BCB) said on Monday.

"Nazim has torn one of the tendons on his left ring finger during the pre-match warm up of the practice game against the Australian Institute of Sports in Darwin today," it said in a statement.

"The injury would require six to eight weeks of immobilization in a splint," it said. He will fly home and the team management has asked for a replacement.

The 23-year-old batsman, who has scored just 90 runs in seven one-day internationals, was included only after fellow opener Shahriar Nafees opted out to attend exams.

Bangladesh play five warm-up matches ahead of the series, to be played in Darwin on Aug 30, Sept 3 and 6.
