Bangladesh middle-order batsman Mahmudullah is suffering from a grade one calf muscle injury and uncertain for their next group stage match of the World Cup 2019 against India, which will be played Tuesday in Birmingham.

The Tigers left for the Midlands Tuesday morning and Mahmudullah was seen walking on crutches on his way to the team bus. 

The experienced batsman’s injury initially looked serious, considering the next match, but the team management is hopeful that he will be fit for the game against India.  

“Mahmudullah has sustained a low grade calf injury. We will monitor his progress over the next few days with regards to his availability for the next World Cup match,” informed Bangladesh physio Thihan Chandramohan in an official statement Tuesday.

Team manager Khaled Mahmud Sujon said there are seven days left to the next game and they are hopeful that Mahmudullah will be fit by taking proper rest during this period.

“It’s a grade one tear. But it is curable. Our next match is Tuesday. We have seven days in our hand. It’s a 50-50 chance at the moment. We cannot say he will play, or he is ruled out from the next match. We have to assess the situation in the next few days. Mahmudullah is a very important player in our team. I believe he will be okay before the game,” said Mahmud to the media Tuesday.

Mahmudullah scored 27 off 38 deliveries against Afghanistan Monday at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton. 

The Tigers eventually won by 62 runs.

Mahmudullah felt discomfort while batting and at one stage was struggling a little bit to run quickly between the wickets.

He did not field in the second innings.
