Aminul uncertain in match against Afghanistan

Despite a dream debut which saw him claimed 2-18 in four overs in a measly bowling effort against Zimbabwe, leg-spinner Aminul Islam Biplob is likely to miss the Bangladesh’s next match against Afghanistan on Saturday at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.

In the match against Zimbabwe, a shot of Hamilton Masakadza struck on his left hand, leaving him injured. Later he needed three stitches on the injured hand. “Masakadza played a straight drive and I went to save it but I couldn’t. Later it hit my hand and there was no way to escape from it. Later it needs three stitches,” Aminul said on Thursday.

“But by the grace of Allah, it feels good now. The pain has subsided. I don’t know whether I would play the next match. I will do what the physio wants to me.”

Bangladesh team management however is yet to decide on whether Aminul would play the next match against Afghanistan.

“Physio has been taking care of his injury. We didn’t get any update yet. Once we get, we’ll let you know,” said chief selector Minhajul Abedin Nannu.

At the insistence of new coach Russell Domingo, Aminul Islam Biplob made the way into the national team and subsequently bowled well to give the nations a hope to solve the leg-spinner crisis in the country.

Aminul however gave the credit to senior players like captain Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah Riyad and Mushfiqur Rahim to give him the confidence in the field.

“Everyone inspired me to do well. When the senior players and captain backed you, the confidence comes automatically,” Aminul, normally called as Biplob by his teammates, said.
