Bangladesh Test captain Mominul Haque needs to undergo an operation table in a bid to recover from his finger injury fully. While, Mohammad Saifuddin, the all-rounder of the Minister Group Rajshahi is expected to recover from his ankle injury fully within a week, reports BSS.

Gazi Group Chattogram’s top order batsman, Mominul Haque injured his index finger of right hand while fielding in the match against Gemcon Khulna in Bangabandhu T20 Cup on Saturday.

After scanning the injured finger, he found out that there were serious fractures. As a result, he is ruled out of the Bangbandhu T20 Cup.

“It seems he needs an operation to recover fully from the injury,” said BCB chief physician Dr. Debashis Chowdhury.

“But I can’t say where his operation will be done. At this moment, it is not easy to send someone for surgery abroad. There is an issue of visa and quarantine. We are discussing this at this moment.”

Earlier Chattogram physio Mohammad Enamul Haque said it usually takes four to six weeks to recover from this type of fracture.

While he is ruled out from the Bangabandhu T20 Cup, his possibility to play against West Indies in a Test series in January looks slim.

But Debashis didn’t want to make comments on his possibility to play the Test series.

“At this moment, he is ruled out from the Bangabandhu T20 Cup. But it is not the right time to make comments on his possibility to play the Test series.”

Meanwhile, Rajshahi’s physio Khademul Islam Shawon said all-rounder Mohammad Saifuddin’s progress is satisfactory and he could join the side at the halfway through the Bangabandhu T20 Cup.

“He is in rehabilitation now and his progress is satisfactory. We hope he will start playing halfway through the Bangabandhu T20 Cup,” he said here today.

Saifuddin hurt his ankle when he was playing football during the training session at the National Academy Ground of the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium just a day ahead of the tournament.

The pace-bowling all-rounder was seen leaving the ground on a crutch, with his left leg bandaged.
