The accident took place when Mashrafe was travelling by a cycle rickshaw from his house to the Shere Bangla Stadium for the team's training session. There was a mild collision between his rickshaw and a bus.

Mashrafe has now got both hands bandaged but the Bangladesh team management is hopeful that he would recover in time for the series.

"This is unfortunate. We are concerned about his palm," Bangladesh coach Chandika Hathurasingha said.

"But we will give him maximum chance to recover in time for the ODI series," he added.
