Medical reports said Mahmudullah had picked up a grade 1 hamstring injury

Bangladesh all-rounder Mahmudullah is recovering well from a hamstring injury and is highly likely to be in action from the beginning of the upcoming Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League T20, set to start on December 11. 

Mahmudullah has been in rehabilitation after he picked the injury during the recent tour of India.

Mahmudullah had to leave the field while batting against hosts India in the second day of the day-night Test in Kolkata last month. The Bangladesh cricketer had pulled a hamstring, and was unable to continue batting later in the innings.

Medical reports said Mahmudullah had picked up a grade 1 hamstring injury, which would take at least 14 days to recover from. The cricketer is expected to start running from Monday. 

“Normally, it takes 14 days to recover from this type of injury, as Mahmudullah has a grade 1 tear that does not look that serious at the moment. He is under the supervision of national team physio Julian Calefato, and is set to start light running within the next two days,” a member of the Bangladesh Cricket Board medical team told the media yesterday.

Mahmudullah was drafted by the Chattogram Challengers as an A+ category player for the special edition of the BPL T20, that is being run under the direct management of the BCB.
