Due to a lower back injury, Rashid Khan will miss the first two One Day Internationals against Sri Lanka.

The first game of the three-match series will be played on June 2, and the second game will be played there two days later.

The one-off Test match between Afghanistan and Bangladesh is set to take place in Chattogram just seven days (14th June) after the ODI series.

The Team Physio’s report confirms the injury and states that he will remain under full medical observation and is expected to return for the final ODI on June 7.

In Rashid's absence, Mohammad Nabi, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Noor Ahmad will have to shoulder extra responsibility in the spin department.

Rashid recently competed in the IPL, where his Gujarat Titans team lost to Chennai Super Kings in the championship game on Monday night.

With 27 wickets, he tied for the second-highest number of wickets in the tournament.
