Bangladesh allrounder Mohammad Saifuddin‘s back injury has ruled him out of next month’s T20I series in India. According to the BCB, multiple scans have suggested that the player’s recovery will take more time, and he will continue with his rehab for now.
Team physio Julian Calefato said that Saifuddin would have more time to strengthen his body by taking the break.
“Due to a recurring back injury, Saif will be rested from the India tour this year, giving him an opportunity to consolidate his recovery over a longer period of time,” Calefato said. “He now will also have the opportunity to spend more time strengthening his body and his situation will be reviewed by the medical team again in the upcoming weeks for further updates.”
Saifuddin had recently said that he was keen to bear the pain to play in the T20I series against India. Bangladesh are yet to name his replacement.
Bangladesh squad for T20I series: Shakib Al Hasan (capt), Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Mohammad Naim, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Afif Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain, Aminul Islam, Arafat Sunny, Al-Amin Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Shafiul Islam
