BAN VS SL: Mehidy Hasan Miraz, the allrounder, has been ruled out of the first Test against Sri Lanka. This is after he injured his right hand’s small finger during a Dhaka Premier League match. The selectors are yet to name a replacement, but the next in line, Nayeem Hasan, could be a good option. Mehidy was injured when he dropped a catch in the deep during the Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club-Prime Bank Cricket Club match.

He writhed in pain and was carried off the field right away. However, the BCB revealed the Test squad shortly after, which included Mehidy. Minhajul Abedin, the chief selector at the time, had stated that the offspinner would be fine. But the depth of the injury was only discovered after he got a scan in Dhaka.

Mushfiqur Rahim, who played for Mehidy’s squad, Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club, was also injured during the same match. Mushfiqur, on the other hand, has recovered sufficiently to play in the team’s next match on Tuesday in Mirpur. Bangladesh will be without Taskin Ahmed for the forthcoming Test series against Sri Lanka. This is because he hasn’t healed from a shoulder injury he sustained in South Africa.

It reworked the pace attack, and without Mehidy now, the spin attack will also suffer in potentially slow, low conditions. The first Test will take place at Chattogram on May 15th. Sri Lanka will come to Dhaka on the 8th of May. And will play a two-day practice match in BKSP on the 11th and 12th of May.

Mehidy has a minimal chance of playing in the second Test as well, according to reports. While Nayeem Hasan may get picked as his replacement in the squad. Nayeem has taken 25 wickets at an average of 26.2 in seven Tests for Bangladesh. Meanwhile, the first Test between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will begin on May 15 at Chattogram’s Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium (ZACS).

“He (Mehidy) is definitely ruled out from the opening Test due to a hairline injury while he is also doubtful for the second Test.”

Habibul Bashar, a member of the national selection panel confirmed as reported by Cricbuzz

The second Test will begin on May 23 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium (SBNCS) in Dhaka. Mehidy has been one of Bangladesh’s most consistent players in the longer format, and his numbers under home circumstances are also extremely strong. So far, the off-spinner has taken 128 wickets in 33 Tests while also amassing 1072 runs with the bat. He has eight five-wicket hauls to his name, as well as one century and three half-centuries, and has been a fixture in the side since his debut in 2016.
