Bangladesh captain Shakib al Hasan will also miss the second warm-up match against England due to an ankle injury. 

The all-rounder incurred the injury during the team's first practice session at Guwahati which ruled him out of the first practice match.

In his absence, Mehidy Hasan Miraz led the side and the Tigers were able to defeat Sri Lanka by seven wickets. 

Bangladesh will square off against defending champions England on October 2 at Guwahati.

Following the practice matches Bangladesh will begin their World Cup campaign against Afghanistan at Dharamsala on 7 October.
