Bangladesh suffered a fresh injury blow ahead of next week's one-day international series against New Zealand Saturday, after the Bangladesh Cricket Board said all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan had been ruled out with a finger fracture.
This was the second injury blow for Bangladesh ahead of the visit, which featured three one-day internationals and three Tests.
Pace bowler Taskin Ahmed was earlier ruled out for the entire series with a torn ligament and had been replaced by Shafiul Islam for the ODIs and uncapped Ebadot Hossain for Test series.
Several Bangladeshi cricketers have already left Dhaka for the three-match ODI series that starts in Napier on February 13.
Bangladesh have not won any match against New Zealand in any format during their previous four visits.
