Mushy joins Tamim, Taskin on sidelines
Abahani skipper Mushfiqur Rahim has been ruled of the ongoing Bangabandhu Dhaka Premier League and will miss the rest of the super league matches after hurting left hand while fielding during a match against Gazi Group Cricketers on Monday.
The wicketkeeper-batsman sustained the injury as a throw from his teammate struck his left hand after Mushfiqur had removed his gloves to collect the ball.
After undergoing a CT scan yesterday, Bangladesh Cricket Board's chief physician Dr Debshahish Chowdhury informed that Mushfiqur had a hairline fracture on his index finger.
"There is a small hairline fracture on the index finger according to the CT scan. We have asked him to take a week's rest, after which we will assess his condition again. Since it's a hairline fracture, we expect him to recover quickly," Debashish told media today.
Although it is still unclear whether Mushfiqur can recover before the upcoming Zimbabwe tour, Debshahish informed that the medical team would review his condition after a week.
Earlier, Prime Bank Cricket Club's Tamim Iqbal was ruled out of the super league suffering a knee injury. Pacer Taskin Ahmed also sustained an injury and was ruled out of the super league.
Selectors are expected to announce the Bangladesh squad for the upcoming Zimbabwe tour within the next few days. Bangladesh are scheduled to play a Test, three ODIs and three T20Is.
However, the BCB is still waiting for the quarantine protocols from the Zimbabwe Cricket Board, depending on which they will announce the travel date for the tour. Mushfiqur had asked for a break from the T20I series while star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, who is currently in the USA with his family, is expected to join the team in Zimbabwe directly.
