Mahmudullah joins injury list to worsen Bangladesh’s situation
While they are in danger of losing their maiden day-night Test in Kolkata inside two days, Bangladesh’s situation worsened further after Mahmudullah Riyad left the ground with hamstring injury.
He is the third player in the ill-fated match to be injured following the concussion issue of Liton Das and Nayeem Hasan. Both of the two concussed players were replaced by Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Taijul Islam.
Middle order batsman Mohammad Mithun was also struck on his head by an Ishant Sharma bouncer on day two of the game when Bangladesh were batting in the second innings. Fortunately, however, his condition remained stable but he was out on just 8.
Mahmudullah meanwhile played with lot of discomfort as the Indian bowlers unsettled him with a barrage of bouncer that hit in the several places of his body. Still, he managed to score 39 before being retired hurt.
