Mahmudullah unlikely starter for the New Zealand series

Mahmudullah, the Bangladeshi all-rounder, has a shoulder issue, which makes him dubious for the forthcoming tour of New Zealand, according to Bangladesh Cricket Board officials on Wednesday.

After playing the same opponent in two Test matches, Bangladesh is scheduled to play three Twenty20 internationals and three One-day Internationals in New Zealand in December. December 17, 20, and 23 are the dates for the three ODIs, while December 27, 29, and 31 are the dates for the three T20Is. Given the severity of his injury, Mahmudullah, who hurt his shoulder diving while batting against Australia in their final World Cup match, is unlikely to go with the team for the white-ball series.

His scan was finished on November 14, BCB authorities revealed, and based on the information they received today (Wednesday), it will take him five to seven weeks to fully recuperate. Chief selector of the BCB Minhajul Abedin acknowledged that Mahmudullah’s availability for the New Zealand tour is unlikely. “I think he is doubtful for the white ball series against New Zealand at their backyard in December for his shoulder injury,” Minhajul remarked.

Mahmudullah, who is averaging 54.66 and striking at 91.62, was Bangladesh’s top run scorer in the current World Cup, with 328 runs in seven innings in eight games. In addition to being his nation’s only centurion throughout the international competition, he also achieved a half-century.
