Dhaka:

Bangladesh suffered a blow ahead of the Idea Cup tri-series after fast bowler Nazmul Hossain was on Sunday ruled out of the tournament starting on Monday after he suffered an injury during practice at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium here.

He will be replaced by another pacer Shahadat Hossain.

"Paceman Nazmul Hossain has suffered a right quadriceps muscle injury during practice today and is likely to be out of action for two weeks. He has been ruled out of the Idea Cup tri-nation competition. Shahadat Hossain has replaced Nazmul in the Bangladesh squad," a release from the Bangladesh Cricket Board said.

Bangladesh, who will take on Sri Lanka in the tournament opener on Monday, had to leave out fast bowler Mashrafe Mortaza from their 15-member squad as he failed to recover from a knee injury despite being named in the 26-man preliminary squad.
