Mohammad Naim and Ebadat Hossain will leave Dhaka today to join the ODI team in Zimbabwe.
Today their flight is at 7:45 pm Bangladesh time. A BCB source confirmed the matter. Both have been called up as replacements in the injured Bangladesh team.
Liton Das ends the Zimbabwe tour with a hamstring injury. There are concerns about his presence in the Asia Cup starting from August 27. The opener suffered the injury in the first ODI of the series against Zimbabwe in Harare yesterday. Litton was taken to the hospital for a scan during the match.
Liton will have to rest for three to four weeks, according to the team’s physio Mosadded Alfa, “The scan report has detected a grade-2 muscle strain.” It takes 3 to 4 weeks to recover from such an injury. So we are not getting him in this series.
Mushfiqur Rahim and Shariful Islam are also injured. The physio of the national team felt positive about these two, ‘Mushfiq got injured in the big toe while batting. But there is no risk with Mushfiq in the next match. Shariful also got pain while bowling. The immediate pain felt a bit paralyzed. I hope I can give you good news about Shariful tomorrow.’
Earlier, the wicketkeeper-batsman Nurul Hasan was dropped from the team due to pain in his finger. No cricketer was sent as his replacement. This time there is a player crisis in the Bangladesh team due to Liton’s injury.
Nothing can be said for sure about Shariful. So one batsman and one pacer are going to join the team.
