The former Bangladesh skipper Akram Khan was hospitalised on Thursday after his health deteriorated after being tested positive for Covid-19 last week.
The 52-year old, who was in isolation at home for a week, was admitted to a Specialized Hospital in Dhaka after he complained of an excessive cough problem.
“His cough increased a lot and so we have brought him to the hospital. Just before the iftar (on Thursday) his blood test was done along with other tests and now we are waiting for the result to know his condition,” Sabina Akram, wife of the former skipper told The Daily Sun.
Akram, who played eight Tests and 44 one-day internationals for Bangladesh, is currently a director and the cricket operation chairman of Bangladesh Cricket Board.
