Rashid doubtful for final

Afghanistan captain Rashid Khan, who suffered a hamstring injury during the final league stage game is doubtful for the T20 tri-series final against Bangladesh on September 24.

The Afghan skipper hobbled off the field after suffering the injury though he came back to the field and bowled at the death.

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

"I cannot say that he will be available [for the final]," Zai told reporters. "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 [before taking any decision]."

Having lost four matches in a row, Bangladesh gained some momentum before the final with a four-wicket victory against the Rashid-led Afghanistan. It will be a big setback for the Afghans if Rashid does not make the final.
