Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) went for a fifteen days rest given to the experienced middle order batsman but he has returned to the net practice on Saturday, after barely a week.

Assuring about his better physique condition, the 33 year old said in an interview with Ekattor TV, “To be honest, I was scared.”

“But when I talked with BCB physiotherapist and other physicians, I came to know the injury is not that grave and it would be easy to recover through rehabilitation and maintaining some rules,” he said.

“By the grace of Allah, my shoulder condition is quite good now. I’ve started the rehabilitation, it feels okay now. The most positive thing is, I’m felling no trouble at all while batting,”

Mahmudullah further said.

On last Tuesday, a BCB official said, ”We will follow conservative treatment process and if that fails to heal him than we might need operation,” he said.

”He can do his fitness training but we advised that he should not have any session that can force him to take some kind of a load. This injury is quite similar to the one that Mustafizur received but in most cases it becomes a major concern for pace bowlers. So we are hoping that he will recover with conservative treatment,” the official said.
