WI vs BAN 2022: Saifuddin, Yasir Ali ruled out of the White ball leg due to back injury

WI vs BAN 2022: Bangladesh suffered a massive jolt as Mohammad Saifuddin & Yasir Ali both have been ruled out of their white-ball leg of the West Indies series due to their back injuries. It is understood that Saifuddin was not deemed fit enough to bowl after recovering which has forced him to stay out of the white ball leg as well. Yasir Ali too was ruled out of the ODIs & T20Is on Wednesday owing to his grueling back injury.

After recovering from a back injury, Saifuddin trained with the white ball specialists in Dhaka during the last few weeks when his bowling fitness was deemed insufficient. Meanwhile, Yasir suffered a back injury during Bangladesh’s practice match in Coolidge which ruled him out of the Test series & white-ball leg of the West Indies tour.

“Although Saifuddin is training, we feel that at the moment he has not reached the bowling fitness level required to cope with the intensity of international cricket. He will miss the West Indies series as he continues his rehab and works on his fitness,” Dr. Debashis Chowdhury, BCB’s chief sports physician, said.

“Yasir Ali has not been recovering as anticipated from his back injury and could not start his rehab,” Bangladesh physio Bayjedul Islam said. “As he is still restricted in his physical work after nearly two weeks of rest, we can conclude that his injury time will be extended. He will be missing the remaining matches and is therefore out of the West Indies series.”

Selectors might consider including Tamim Iqbal, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, and Ebadot Hossain in the T20I squad who are a part of ODIs & Test teams. The ODIs are the last segment of the West Indies tour so selectors don’t have to bring in a replacement from Dhaka.

With Yasir & Saifuddin’s injury, Bangladesh’s injury count for the tour has reached three as earlier pacer Shoriful Islam has already been ruled out of the Tests and T20Is due to a side strain he suffered during training.

Yasir Ali made his international debut in all three formats in the last eight months & rose to glory after being with the Test squad throughout 2021. He was seen as a perfect replacement for Mushfiqur Rahim who has pulled out of the West Indies tour in order to perform Hajj.  Saifuddin on the other hand has been injury-prone most of the time in his five-year International career. He got the back injury during the T20 World Cup last year & hasn’t recovered from it fully.

The second Test of the series will begin on Friday before the T20Is are played on July 2, 3, and 7 in Roseau and Providence. The three ODIs will be played in Providence on July 10, 13, and 16.
