Afghanistan skipper Rashid Khan, who injured his left hamstring during the final league match against Bangladesh, is a doubtful starter for the final of the T20 tri-series on Tuesday.

Team Manger Nazim Jar Abdur Rahim Zai said the injury would be monitored over the next couple of days.

He said, "I cannot say that he will be available for the final. He is doing well and let's see what's happening. We will have two or three days for recovery."

"I hope it's not that serious because he is our captain and main player and we will monitor him tomorrow and the day after."

The skipper sustained an injury while fielding during the eighth over of Bangladesh's run chase on Saturday. Afghanistan lost the match by four wickets but had already secured a spot in the finals of the T20I tri-nation series. Zimbabwe, on the other hand have crashed out of the tri-series as they lost three matches out of four. Their solitary win came against Afghanistan in the 5th match of the series at Chattogram.

It would be a big blow for the Afghanistan side as Rashid Khan is currently the number one bowler in the ICC T20I players rankings. In this series, he has picked up 6 wickets from 4 games at an average of 18.

Afghanistan have won 2 of their 4 games in the tri-series and are placed second in the points table.

The final match of the tri-series will be played between Afghanistan and Bangladesh at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka on Tuesday.
