Yasir Ali Chowdhury ruled out of the Bangladesh v West Indies series
Bangladesh batsman Yasir Ali Chowdhury has been ruled out of the ODI and T20 series’ against the West Indies after failing to recover from a back injury sustained on the first day of the three-day practice match against the Cricket West Indies President’s XI in Antigua on 10 June.
A subsequent MRI scan revealed Discogenic Back Pain on the Lumbar spine and he was expected to be back in action time for the ODI and T20 international series’. However, it now appears that the batsman’s return to playing will be delayed.
National Team physio Bayjedul Islam said: “Yasir Ali has not been recovering as anticipated from his back injury and could not start his rehab. As he is still restricted in his physical work after nearly two weeks of rest, we can conclude that his injury time will be extended. He will be missing the remaining matches and is therefore out of West Indies series.”
Yasir is returning to Bangladesh and will continue his recovery under the supervision of the BCB Medical Team.
