Spinner Nayeem suffers finger injury ahead of Dhaka Test

A big blow for Bangladesh as off-spinner Nayeem Hasan suffered a finger injury during an indoor net session on Tuesday, a day before the second and final Test against New Zealand.

He got out of the nets immediately as medical staff treated him, with his finger bleeding. The extent of the injury is yet to be known.
It would be learned more after talking to the physios, said Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) chief physician Debashash Chowdhury.

Nayeem kept things tight to keep New Zealand at bay though Taijul starred in Bangladesh's 150-run victory with a match haul of 10-184.

He snared one wicket for 73 runs in the first innings before claiming two more wickets in the second innings for 40 runs in 17 overs.

Coach Chandika Hathurusingha said that he was very impressed with Nayeem's impact.

"He (Nayeem) is the highest wicket-taker in the NCL. He is coming with confidence and a good rhythm. We saw that in the game. He played his role perfectly. At times he attacked, he was the defensive bowler. He created a lot of doubt in batters' minds. He got a reaction out of someone like Kane Williamson. I was very impressed with him," Hathurusingha said.
