Left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman has also joined the list of injured cricketers of the Bangladesh team during the tour of Zimbabwe. According to party sources, Mustafiz has suffered an ankle injury. However, the severity of the injury is yet to be ascertained.
Earlier, Liton Das was ruled out of the Zimbabwe tour due to a hamstring injury. The opener was injured in the first ODI of the series against Zimbabwe in Harare yesterday. Litton was taken to the hospital for a scan during the match. He will have to rest for three to four weeks, said team physio Mujadded Sani.
Earlier, Nurul Hasan returned home with a finger injury. Mushfiqur Rahim and Shariful Islam are also injured. Mushfiqur injured his hand while batting. Shariful injured his knee while fielding his own bowling. The team management is hopeful of getting Mushfiqur in tomorrow’s match. However, nothing can be said for sure about Shariful.
T20 captain and wicketkeeper-batsman Nurul Hasan was not brought in as a replacement from the country. Because Liton-Nurul got injured, there is a player crisis in the Bangladesh team. So Mohammad Naeem and Ibadat Hossain are being brought as replacements. Today they are scheduled to catch a flight to Zimbabwe.
