Mahmudullah suffers injury, future uncertain
Bangladesh have been hit with a massive injury blow as their experienced middle-order batsman Mahmudullah Riyad picked up a Grade-1 tear on his right calf muscle during the match against Afghanistan on Monday in ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019.
After coming to bat at 32th over of the match, inside a few overs Mahmudullah was limping while at the same time running between the wickets. Then he didn’t come to field in the second innings and went for the scan immediately.
“The scan outcomes demonstrated a Grade-1 tear on Riyad’s right calf,” said Khaled Mahmud, Tigers’ technical director. “Right now, that is everything I can say as I have not addressed the physio [Thihan Chandramohan] yet. I can reveal to you increasingly about the recovery time frame toward the beginning of the day in the wake of addressing the physio.”
Mahmudullah had advised to take full treatment ahead of side’s next all-important game against India on July 2. “We will pursue conservative treatment process and if that neglects to recover him than we may require operation. He can do his fitness preparing however we exhorted that he ought not have any session that can compel him to take some sort of a heap.
“This damage is very like the one that Mustafizur received but in most cases, it turns into a noteworthy worry for pace bowlers. So we are trusting that he will recover with conservative treatment,” a BCB source quoted.
