Mushfiqur Rahim is unlikely to take part in the series decider due to a groin injury.

“He is carrying a groin injury and chances are slim regarding his participation in the second Test against New Zealand,” the team official said. “In the morning our physio will have a look at him before we make a final call but if he fails to make it to the XI in that case Nurul is front runner to replace him.”
