Das (ribs) was hit on the ribcage by a net bowler on Monday and has been ruled out of Bangladesh's second Test against Sri Lanka, ESPN Cric Info reports.
The 22-year-old wicketkeeper had just played in his first Test since July 2015 and has already shown great promise both domestically and internationally, with nine first-class tons in 39 matches. Mushfiqur Rahim, who was slated to be a specialist batsman for the series, will take over the gloves for Das for the final Test against Sri Lanka.

Fantasy AnalysisDas is making his first international appearances in this series, which has so far amounted to a 22.00 average and four catches through two ODIs. In Sunday's contest, the 20-year-old managed a pair of partnerships with Soumya Sarkar (52 off 62) and Mushfiqur Rahim (12 off 16), before Das' departure in the 20th over on an edge to the keeper. If his List A figures are any indication -- 42.00 average and 90.48 strike rate -- Das' performance Sunday could very well become the norm.
