DHAKA — Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim faces a race against time to be fit for the one-off Test against India next month after the wicketkeeper-batsman was advised to take a week’s rest to recover from a finger injury.

The 28-year-old injured the third finger on his right hand in the opening Test against Pakistan at Khulna last month and ignored advice to skip the next match at Dhaka to deny himself full recovery.

“Since he was complaining of pain, we did the necessary medical examinations again on his right hand,” said Bangladesh Cricket Board physician Debashis Chowdhury. “The report confirmed that the internal damage is yet to completely heal and that’s why the swelling and the pain is still there. We have advised him to take full rest for one week before further assessment.” — Reuters
