Islam said, “It takes about two to three weeks to recover from such injuries. So he will not be available for the Test series.
Yasir was injured on the first day of Bangladesh’s three-day warm-up match against CWI President’s XI on 10 June.
Yasir has played five Tests so far, in which he has scored 196 runs at an average of 24.50. Yasir, in place of Shakib Al Hasan, performed brilliantly in New Zealand and South Africa earlier this year, but then Shakib’s return against Sri Lanka left him out of the team.
Mushfiqur Rahim’s absence, however, could have opened a place for Yasir, if he was fit. Bangladesh selectors have not named a replacement for Yasir, reducing their batting line-up even further.
The first Test against West Indies will begin in North Sound from June 16 while the second Test will begin in St. Lucia from June 24.
