The opener left the field retired hurt after pulling a muscle in the fifth over against South African Invitational XI at Willowmoore Park in Benoni on Thursday morning.

Bangladesh batsman Tamim Iqbal has suffered an injury at the start of a three-day warm-up match ahead of the two Tests against South Africa.

The vice-captain will be sent to a hospital for a scan to know the status of his injury. Tamim played just 13 balls, opening the match with a boundary.

Bangladesh will start the two-Test series against South Africa at Potchefstroom on Sept 28.

This  will be a key overseas test for the Tigers after brilliant performances at home in past few years. This will be the first Test in South Africa for Bangladesh after 2008.
