5Views 0Like

In unfortunate news, Bangladesh’s Ebadot Hossain has been ruled out of the remaining one-day international (ODI) and Twenty20 international (T20I) series against Afghanistan due to a knee injury. The injury occurred during Bangladesh’s second match against Afghanistan on Saturday in Chittagong, where Ebadot hobbled off the ground and was unable to bat.

According to Bangladesh team physiotherapist Muzadded Alpha Sany, the MRI scan revealed that Ebadot’s injury is not severe and he is expected to recover within approximately two weeks. Despite his absence from the matches, Ebadot will remain with the team to focus on his rehabilitation.

The defeat suffered by Bangladesh in the second match against Afghanistan, with a margin of 142 runs, marked a historic victory for Afghanistan. They became only the second team in the past seven years to win an ODI series in Bangladesh, following the footsteps of world champions England. Bangladesh’s chances of avoiding a whitewash at home now hang in the balance, as they had previously lost the opening match by 17 runs. The last time Bangladesh faced a series whitewash at home was in 2014 against Sri Lanka, where they suffered a 0-3 defeat.

Following the completion of the ODI series, two T20 matches are scheduled to take place in Sylhet, Bangladesh’s northeastern city, on Friday and Sunday. However, Afghanistan has also encountered an injury setback of their own as pace bowler Naveen-ul-Haq has been ruled out of the series due to a knee injury. He has been replaced by Nijat Masood, who showed promising performance in his Test debut against Bangladesh by taking figures of 5/79 in his debut innings.

The final ODI match of the series between Bangladesh and Afghanistan will be held in Chittagong on July 11. Unfortunately for Bangladesh, they have already lost the series after being defeated in the first two ODIs. However, they will aim to salvage some pride in the last match. Subsequently, the focus will shift to the T20 series, which is scheduled to take place in Sylhet on July 14 and 16.

Despite the absence of Ebadot due to his injury, Bangladesh will strive to regroup and deliver a strong performance against Afghanistan. With a defeat in the series already confirmed, Bangladesh will be eager to avoid a whitewash and end the series on a positive note. The fans will be looking forward to seeing how the team adapts to the challenges and strives to put up a tough fight against a resilient Afghanistan side.

The series against Afghanistan not only showcases the growing competitiveness of cricket in the region but also provides an opportunity for young players to shine and make a name for themselves. It is a test of skill, resilience, and adaptability for both teams as they aim to secure victories and build momentum for future encounters.

As the cricketing world awaits the remaining matches, the absence of Ebadot and Naveen-ul-Haq will be felt by their respective teams. However, it is an opportunity for other players to step up and fill the void left by the injured bowlers. The series promises exciting cricket, with both teams keen to showcase their abilities and leave a lasting impact on the international stage.
