Despite of remaining injured, Imrul Kayes has been included in the 16-man squad for the upcoming tri-nation series. Even after the announcement of the squad, Kayes said in the press conference that he will recover very soon.
But the bad news is, Kayes is yet to recover from his injury and he is now in doubt for the first two matches of the tri-nation series.
When Kayes will fully recover from his injury is still unknown to everyone. Though, he batted in the nets but he still don’t have the fitness to play the practice matches.
BCB’s doctor Debashish Chowdhury said: “It will be not right to comment now wheather he can play the first match or not. There is still time. We will see. Imrul batted in the nets yesterday. He didn’t face much problem. But while playing match, batting is not the only thing. He has to field for 50 overs too. We have to be aware of that. We still have few days left, now lets see what happens.”
As Kayes is still in doubt for the first two matches, Anamul Haque Bijoy who made a comeback after a long time is likely to open with the in form opener Tamim Iqbal. The other option is Mohammad Mithun who last opened with Tamim in the 2016 T20 World Cup.
