Aminul might need surgery: BCB

Bangladesh leg-spinner Aminul Islam is all set to go under knife if his sinusitis problem is not cured by medication, said Bangladesh Cricket Board officials on Tuesday.

Aminul is suffering from breathing problem due to the sinusitis and as a result is going under medication at the moment in the Apollo Hospital under an ENT specialist.

BCB chief physician Debashish Chowdhury said that if he is not cured within next 15 days he might have to go under the knife.

“Biplob (Aminul) is suffering from sinusitis for quite some time and now he is getting treatment under an ENT specialist in the Apollo Hospital. If he is not cured in next 15 days we need to have an operation,” said Debashish.

Aminul said that he is feeling better with the medication.

“I have sinusitis problem for long time and I am treating in Apollo for couple of days,” said Aminul.

“The doctor gave me some medication and I am feeling better now. After few days I will meet the doctor again and he will suggest me what is my next course of action after assessing my improvement,” he said.

Earlier Bangladesh Cricket Board's (BCB) newly introduced COVID-19 Wellness app got Aminul and Saifuddin in red zone raising concern over their health.

It's not that the cricketers have been diagnosed with COVID-19 but the app found one or two negative answers from the duo. A total of 18 questions were installed in the app and those answers will determined which zone the cricketers are at this moment.

While Aminul was in red zone for breathing problem, Saifuddin was having fever but BCB official insisted he is much better now.

“He was having fever and cough for 10 to 12 days but now he have recovered on his own so there is no need to worry,” said Debashish.
