Consultation from the BCB medical team has relieved the cricketer from worry for World Cup 2019 selection
Bangladesh stalwart Mahmudullah is not concerned over his shoulder injury.
The all-rounder has been carrying a Grade 3 tear according to MRI reports.
However, consultation from the BCB medical team has relieved the cricketer from worry for World Cup 2019 selection.
Mahmudullah complained of tremendous pain during the tour of New Zealand last month.

Following medical analysis it was found that the injury is a Grade 3 tear, which normally does not trouble the batsmen much if they play competitive cricket.
“Initially I was a bit concerned to be honest. Never thought the injury was of this level. But the doctors assured there is nothing much to worry. Only thing is that I will not be able to bowl at the moment. I have been given a rehab schedule and need to do running and gym sessions based on that. Will start batting in a day or two,” said Mahmudullah to a Bengali web news portal Wednesday.
The 33-year-old Mahmudullah had intended to play for Lt. Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club Limited in the ongoing Dhaka Premier League if the side make it through to the Super Six phase of the tournament.
However, as he is suffering from the injury, Mahmudullah has been ruled out from appearing in the 50-over tournament this season.
