Bangladesh receive Mahmudullah injury scare ahead of World Cup

By CricnWin


Mahmudullah has given Bangladesh an injury concern ahead of the World Cup after an MRI report of the batsman revealed a grade-3 tear on his shoulder. He had initially injured himself a few months ago but aggravated it during the Test series against New Zealand last month.

The 33-year-old Mahmudullah underwent an MRI scan in New Zealand and the report came out on Monday. BCB chief physician Debashish Chowdhury confirmed the news of the player's injury but refused to provide the details.

Meanwhile, a disappointed Mahmudullah said he ‘may need an operation’ and if it happens, he could be sidelined for nearly six months.

"I am not well,” Mahmudullah told Cricbuzz in Mirpur.

“The injury is quite similar to the one that Mustafiz (Mustafizur Rahman) had so I may need an operation if it is not healed properly.”

In 2016, pace bowler Mustafizur Rahman had suffered a shoulder injury and had to undergo a surgery for his SLAP (Superior Labrum from Anterior to Posterior) tear, which kept him out of action for six months.

Bangladesh's World Cup campaign starts against South Africa at The Oval on June 2.
