Bangladesh’s all-rounder Mehedi Hasan Miraz got hit on the head on Sunday ahead of their crucial tie against Afghanistan that is scheduled to take place on Monday. 

Miraz, who is an important member for the Tigers, were giving an interview adjacent to the boundary rope in the Rose Bowl Stadium in Hampshire when a ball hit on the side of his head. 

Miraz’s teammates were making some net practices in the ground and it was known the ball that hit him came from the centre wicket where Sabbir Rahman was batting.

Bangladesh captain Mashrafe bin Mortaza was making some bowling practice while their batting coach Neil Mckenzie was throwing down.

Sabbir, the right-handed batsman, played a pull shot that flew over the boundary through the deep square leg region but it ricocheted off the sitting area and hit unfortunate Miraz. 

However, Bangladesh coach Steve Rhodes informed the 21-year old looked all right although they were waiting for a report of the physio. 

"He seems okay at the moment. We are looking for the report from the physio. But it looks everything is fine so far", said Steve Rhodes during the pre-match press conference at Rose Bowl on Sunday. 

‘He got hit on the side of the head. He was giving an interview and the ball came flying out of the nets. He seems okay. The physio was checking him over. I will get the report. I’d imagine the physio will check for concussion,’ added the coach.
