Dhaka - Bangladesh opening batsman Tamim Iqbal fractured a finger during training on Saturday and will be out for up to a month, the country's cricket board has said.

The left-hander suffered the injury to the little finger of his left hand and will likely have to sit out the team's three-match one-day international series against Afghanistan at home starting on September 25.

Bangladesh are hopeful the 27-year-old will be fit before England arrive to tour the country for a series comprising three ODIs and two tests, starting on October 7.

"Such injuries take about three to four weeks to heal," Bangladesh team physio Bayzidul Islam said in a statement. "We have time. He should be able to start batting in four weeks."
