Mahmud to be taken to Singapore tonight
Former skipper and current Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) director Khaled Mahmud Sujon’s health condition has slightly improved on Monday after twenty four hour observation. Mahmud was supposed to fly for Singapore on Tuesday midnight for treatment. According to reports, Mahmud, who was said to be in semi-coma state, has been responding since Monday morning. However he is still not out of danger. The 47-year-old Mahmud was rushed to Kurmitola General Hospital and later transferred to United Hospital on Sunday. United Hospital received him as unconscious and shifted him to Intensive Care Unit (ICU) immediately for ventilatory support. The doctors kept Mahmud, chairman of the BCB Game Development Committee, under 24-hours observation and meanwhile they took preparation of sending him to Singapore if his physical state allows. He was suffering from high blood pressure and diabetes.

BCB president Nazmul Hasan briefed the media after visiting the former captain at United Hospital on Monday afternoon. “We took decision on Sunday night to send him abroad if possible. Doctors did MRI today and the report does not suggest anything severe. This is a good news thahe is responding better than yesterday. But he is not out of danger yet,” said Nazmul. A specific reason behind sudden illness of Mahmud is yet to be known. “To be honest I dont know the reason of his illness. I met his brother and sister. They are unaware of the reason behind his illness too. It is tough for me to comment on this right now,” concluded the BCB chief.
