Bangladesh hit by double injury blow ahead of the last T20 against India
Bangladesh have been hit with double injury blow as all-rounder Mosaddek Hossain and pacer Mustafizur Rahman suffer injury and are doubtful in the series decider against India on Sunday, November 10 in Nagpur.
Mosaddek could not do anything neither batting nor bowling because of the thigh injury which he picked during the warmup. On the other hand, Mustafizur was not in practice due to ankle problems.
Before the last and third T20 match on Sunday, Mosaddek and Mustafizur both couldn’t able to practice due to injury on Saturday in Nagpur.
Although Mustafizur was running at the start of the practice with the team, Mossadek did not step down from the dressing room. The spinning all-rounder was at rest due to thigh injry. On the other hand, Mustafizur was not in practice because of his old ankle problem. The team could not confirm whether the two would be available in the last T20 match on Sunday.
But it is quite evident that Mosaddek Hossain is unlikely to get into the field in the third T20 due. Instead, middle-order batsman Mohammad Mithun could get an opportunity in XI. While, Mustafizur’s selection is also in doubt but he’s likely to make into main XI. If he can’t, then spinner Taijul Islam will replace him in the XI.
But for sure, Taijul Islam is going to play the last T20 either in place of Mustafizur Rahman or in place of Shafiul Islam as Bangladesh coach hinted out that Nagpur’s pitch could be much helpful for the spinners and he would surely strengthen his spin-bowling department.
