Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza's preparations for the one-day international series against India have been disrupted by hand injuries sustained while riding to training in a cycle rickshaw.

The injury-prone paceman was travelling to the Shere Bangla Stadium in Mirpur on Thursday morning when a bus shunted the rickshaw from behind, the Daily Star newspaper reported.

"The good news is that his injuries are not serious," Bangladesh team physiotherapist Baizidul Islam told the paper.

"But he will have to rest for now and cannot attend practice sessions."

The 31-year-old was not part of the test team to play India in Fatullah next week but was expected to lead the one-day side in the three-match series against the tourists in Dhaka later this month.
