Cape Town - Bangladesh opening batsman Imrul Kayes has been ruled out of the second Test against West Indies, starting in Dhaka on Friday, with a shoulder and toe injury. 

The Tigers have decided not to call up a replacement so it is likely that Shadman Islam, who is already in the squad, will make his Test debut. 

Bangladesh chief selector Minhajul Abedin said: "The physio report says that Imrul has injured in his shoulder and toe. He will need 10 days for recovery." 

Shadman, 23, has a batting average of more than 46 after 42 first-class matches and has hit seven hundreds and 16 half-centuries. 

Bangladesh need only a draw in Dhaka to win the two-match Test series against the Windies after the Tigers beat their visitors by 64 runs in Chittagong. 

Bangladesh Test squad: Shakib Al Hasan (captain), Soumya Sarker, Mohammad Mithun, Mominul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Mustafizur Rahman, Taijul Islam, Nayeem Hasan, Ariful Haque, Khaled Ahmed, Shadman Islam
