Tamim-Saifuddin, Riyadh or Mashrafe no one’s injuries are that critical hence it is highly expected that before the first match of the World Cup, everyone will be perfectly fit.

Bangladesh manager Khaled Mahmud Shujon made the confirmation before the match. Bowling coach Courtney Walsh is also hopeful of getting a healthy team. He said that there is nothing to do if anybody get hurt while batting in the nets.

Tamim was on batting when suddenly a ball ripped on his left hand and he immediately left the practice for the pain. Though he considered it as a minor injury and said I believe everyone will be fit on right time and we can choose the best 11 people.

Speaking about how Bangladesh’s openers can play in the World Cup stage, Shujon said,

“I think all the experienced players in the team are important. Youngsters are also in form. Tamim, Mushfiqur, Shakib, Mashrafe are very important in the field.”

“I think their experience in the World Cup will be very useful. I believe that we will get all of them in all the league stages,” he added.

Regarding the injury of Mashrafe and Saifuddin, he said, “Mashrafe had an old pain. I think it will be okay. On the other hand Saifuddin had a back pain. Hopefully it will be okay tonight.”

Bangladesh are now facing South Africa in their opening match of the ICC World Cup Cricket 2019. South Africa won the toss and decided to bowl first.
