Bangladeshi pacer Rubel Hossain has been ruled out for at least a month after colliding with a door and breaking his jaw while on tour in England, his doctor said yesterday.
The mishap occurred in the Bangladesh team hotel in Birmingham on June 15 after the semi-final loss to India in the Champions Trophy. Bangladesh Cricket Board physician Monirul Amin said Rubel underwent surgery and would need four to six weeks off to recover.
"We hope he will be fine after that period, and make himself available for selection for the Australia series," Amin said, referring to the first of two Tests starting late August.
