Ace all-rounder Sakib al Hasan was asked to stay under the observation of physicians for 48 hours after he received an ankle injury on Friday at his Banani residence.
Sakib, who injured his right ankle while riding the stair, came to Bangladesh Cricket Board office on Saturday to report about his injury but could not join the ongoing camp of national squad for the upcoming home series against Australia.
Sakib was seen coming out from the BCB office with his right ankle being tapped with plaster but the left-hander did not look to be in pain as he smiled to the inquisitive journalists.
BCB’s media manager Rabid Imam said it was tough to comment on the injury before 48 hours but he also reckoned that the injury did not seem to be a serious one.
‘Before 48 hours observation, we cannot say anything. Scan has been accomplished. So, we have to wait for the next two days. In the meantime, we suggested him [Sakib] to take rest’, said Rabid.
‘His injury is not so serious. I think, he will be all right after taking rest.’
Sakib, whose ankle looked swelled, was likely to miss the conditioning camp for next five-six days according to Rabid.
BCB’s chief physician Dedasis Roy Chowdhury and physio Bayezidul Alam could not be contacted over phone despite several attempts.
