As the seaming all-rounder Mohammad Saifuddin has been suffering from a back issue, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has come to the conclusion that it is in the best interest of the player to send him to Qatar for further treatment.
According to what has been learnt, the 26-year-old will be flying to Qatar on Saturday with two other injured cricket players, namely Avishek Das and Ashikur Zaman. All three players are now undergoing treatment for their respective ailments. It is anticipated that the three cricketers would get medical attention at a facility in Doha that specializes in sports medicine.
Avishek, who was a member of the team that triumphed at the ICC U-19 World Cup, is now sidelined with a back ailment. At the same time, Ashikur, his colleague and fellow pacer, has been dealing with an injury to his groin.
Saifuddin has competed in recent domestic events while suffering from recurrent back discomfort. His most recent engagement was with Abahani Limited in the Dhaka Premier League, which was his most recent participation in an athletic event.
Saif, who played for the Tigers in a total of 29 one-day internationals and 34 Twenty20 internationals, participated in his last international match in October 2022 against New Zealand.
