Injured Nasir set for six-month absence
Middle-order batsman Nasir Hossain is most likely to undergo surgery and be out of action for six months due to ligament injury. The right-handed batsman, who has been irregular in the national dressing room for a long time now, tore ligament in his right knee while playing football during a friend’s wedding in Sirajganj a few days back. Nasir appeared at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur Monday with crutches to meet chief BCB physician Dr Debashish Chowdhury. According to the BCB doctor, primary assessment suggests Nasir has torn the ligament in his right knee. Nasir was later sent for an MRI examination in a hospital in Dhaka on the same day. “Primary assessment shows that he has badly injured ligament in his right knee. To know better we have sent him for an MRI and we will get the report (Tuesday),” said Dr Debashish to Dhaka Tribune Monday. It is understood both the BCB physician and the doctor who has done the MRI of Nasir are assuming the cricketer will need to undergo surgery and that the injury will keep him off the field for at least six months.
