Although the BCB has not yet named the captain for the third T20I, Litton Das is most likely to do so.
Nurul Hasan’s finger injury will require around three weeks to heal, according to the team physio.
Following a finger injury sustained during his team’s seven-wicket victory in the second T20I in Harare on Sunday, Nurul Hasan, Bangladesh’s new T20I captain, was forced to withdraw from the rest of the Zimbabwe tour. According to team physio Muzadded Alpha Sany, Nurul fractured his left index finger while batting against fast bowler Hasan Mahmud.
Although the BCB hasn’t named the captain for the third T20I, Litton Das, who captained Bangladesh in a single T20I last year, is most likely to serve in that capacity.
In a video, Sany clarifies with a message saying: “We did an X-ray which revealed a fracture to the index finger. Such injuries take about three weeks to recover from. He is therefore out of Tuesday’s last T20 match and the upcoming ODI series.”
The event happened near the conclusion of Zimbabwe’s inning.
Nurul kept playing wicketkeeper but appeared to be in pain.
Mahmudullah, the previous captain, was rested for the T20I series against Zimbabwe as a result of the change in leadership, and Nurul was appointed captain.
After losing by 17 runs in the first T20I, Bangladesh recovered to win the second match handily and tie the series at one game each.
In Harare, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh will play the third and final T20I on Tuesday. Three ODIs will follow with the rest of the month of August.
Development after the injured captain
Zimbabwe defeated Bangladesh by 10 runs in the third game of the T20I series in Harare to secure their first victory over a higher-ranked team.
To the delight of the packed spectators, the host team rallied from 67 for 6 to finish on a respectable 156 for 8, then held Bangladesh to 146 for 8 in 20 overs.
Zimbabwe 156 for 8 (Burl 54, Jongwe 35, Mahedi 2-28) beats Bangladesh with 146 for 8 (Afif 39*, Mahmudullah 27, Nyauchi 3-29) by a whopping 10 runs in the game.
The T20 World Cup qualification was their most recent victory. In a one-off game, they defeated the West Indies in 2010. They defeated Scotland 2-1 in 2021. And in 2019, they triumphed in a tri-nation competition in Singapore that also included Nepal. But in bilateral T20I cricket, this is their first ever series victory over a Full Member.
At 76 for 6, with his team just hanging on, Ryan Burl scored 34 runs off Nasum Ahmed in the 15th over, tying the second-highest total in a T20I over.
He has experience with large overs against Bangladesh; three years ago, he scored 30 runs in one over off Shakib Al Hasan.
In the end, 79 runs in 5.1 overs by Burn and Jongwe even made it into the record books.
In the history of T20 Internationals, no team has ever had their seventh wicket duo arrive at such a low total (67 for 6) and score at least 50 runs at such a high strike rate.
Bangladesh lost three early wickets as a result of the heavy hitting, and they went 49 balls without recording a boundary after that. They never really recovered from the tremendous hitting. However, they also made a few mistakes, beginning with the first over. A painful chain of events for the Bangladeshi team.
