Due to a fever, Bangladesh’s opening batter Liton Das will not be traveling with the team to Sri Lanka for the Asia Cup, according to Jalal Younus, the head of the Cricket Operations committee for the Bangladesh Cricket Board.
Liton is experiencing a fever. He had a negative dengue test. He will thus board the next aircraft to Sri Lanka if he heals quickly. But if he does not recover, we may need to consider a replacement, Jalal said today, according to The Daily Star.
At 12.55 p.m., the Tigers are scheduled to leave Dhaka; young pacer Tanzim Hasan Sakib is also expected to be delayed.
Since his ticket has not yet been verified, the right-arm pacer, who was added at the last minute to replace the injured Ebadot Hossain, will board a later flight.
On August 31 in Pallekele, Bangladesh’s debut Asia Cup match will be against Sri Lanka.
