In the second day of the second and final Test against South Africa, visiting Bangladesh will have to field without regular playing eleven. Opener Imrul Kayes who had been thrown out of the ground after suffering a blow below the knee while fielding in the slip cordon, will not be able to come to the ground today (Saturday) as well.
Hoping to return after the tea break in the first day, Imrul left the field just after the lunch session when a ball delivered by Mustafizur Rahman touched Aiden Markram’s bat and leapt in front of Imrul Kayes, eventually hit him below the knee region.
The bulky fielder grounded. Primary treatment in the field could not recover him from the pain. He left the ground later resting upon the shoulder of the physiotherapist.
Bangladesh team management is in a bit of concerned state about the injury condition of Imrul Kayes.
It can be noted opener Tamim Iqbal had also suffered from the injury trouble during the first Test of the series. He was then forced to bat at number five for not being able to present in the field for a long time.
Any further details about Imrul Kayes’ condition is yet to be reported.
