“We are yet to decide whether it will be completed at home or abroad. But as it stands, he will certainly be out of cricket for the next six months,” he added.

Meanwhile Nasir Hossain blew away the news of getting injured during playing football, said, “It is quite disappointing to see what is happening with me. I had twisted my knee while running during a personal visit outside Dhaka but there is no truth whatsoever regarding the allegation that it was sustained while playing football.”

“I did not anticipate that my injury will be projected in this manner by the media and it is simply hurtful, to say the least,” he added.

He further told, “Since completing the century in the last game of the league, my focus clearly returned on my own game as that innings helped me to regain the confidence that was lacking for not being able to contribute as per my expectation.

“I knew that there are some opportunities coming up for me to prove my worth and make a claim for a permanent place in the national dressing room,” Nasir Hossain said.
