Young leg-spinner Aminul Islam Biplob is likely to be ruled out from the next game against Afghanistan as he received three stitches in his left hand.

Biplob bowled well in the last game against Zimbabwe Wednesday, taking two wickets in his debut match conceding just 18 runs from his quota of four overs.

He was hurt while trying to save a return shot from Zimbabwe captain Hamilton Masakadza while bowling.

He later required three stitches on his injured hand.

Biplob was seen with bandage in his left hand while talking to the media at the team hotel Thursday morning.

“Masakadza played a shot and while trying to save it, it hit my hand. Three stitches were given after the match. Now I am quite fine and facing less pain. I am following physio’s advice. I am feeling well at the moment but about my participation in the next game, team management will decide on that,” said Biplob.

The injury will come as a setback for the 19-year old, who gave a great account of himself in the Zimbabwe match.

“Every player has a dream to play international cricket. So I felt proud to represent my country. And also, I have played with players whom I have followed while I growing up. So it was a great feeling,” said Biplob.  

“Naturally, I was a bit nervous at the beginning but senior players like Shakib [al Hasan] bhai and [Mahmudullah] Riyad bhai gave me confidence. They advised me to bowl in right areas. As a leg-spinner that is important. I tried to follow that advice and bowled decently I guess.”

More than a useful batsman, Biplob also went on to share his early days as a leggie.

“Actually I started bowling in the beginning part of my career. But then I had a gap as a bowler because of shoulder injury, which I sustained while playing in the Dhaka Premier League. After recovering from injury, HP coach Simon Helmot worked with my bowling. Also, I did work with Wahidul Gani sir and Sohel sir regarding bowling,” said Biplob.

He added, “I feel that as a leg-spinner control with the ball is very important. I will try to improve my control, and improve myself.”

Bangladesh have already qualified for the final and will play their next game against Afghanistan Saturday in Chittagong.
