[RxPG] Chittagong, May 13 - Bangladesh vice-captain Mohammed Ashraful will miss Tuesday's third and final One-day International - against India due to fever, it was announced Sunday.

Chief selector Faruque Ahmed said that Ashraful was admitted to Apollo Hospital in Dhaka Saturday, a few hours after India defeated Bangladesh in the second match to take an unbeatable 2-0 lead.

The team management has, however, not sought any replacement.

Earlier Sunday, the Rahul Dravid-led Indian team along with the Bangladeshi side, minus Ashraful, reached Chittagong in the same aircraft.

After reaching Chittagong, the Indian team had a swimming pool session.

The third match Tuesday is now only of academic interest. The two teams might include a few players who have not appeared in the first two matches.

'We reached here early morning and the players had a swimming pool session -, which lasted about 30-40 minutes,' team manager Surendra Bhave, a former first-class player, told IANS.

India will also play two Test matches starting May 18 in Chittagong. The second match will be held in Dhaka from May 25.

Bangladesh have never won a Test series or a ODI series against India, though they registered an important ODI win over India on their home soil in 2004 and in the 2007 World Cup in the West Indies.
