Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) team Comilla Victorians’ captain Steve Smith has to quit in the middle of the tournament due to a hand injury.
He is set to visit doctors, the team said in a statement. Smith will take a MRI test in Australia. He might return to play the rest of the matches if the test shows him to fit enough, reports UNB.
Smith was out of action during the morning practice session on Thursday. He took part in the running session but skipped batting practice.
Smith joined the Victorians under a special deal. It was prohibited to add a player outside the player's draft but Victorians roped him in breaching this rule. Bangladesh Cricket Board later changed the rule.
It is yet to be announced who will lead Victorians in Smith's absence.
Victorians played two matches in BPL so far and lost one of them. Smith batted in both matches but failed to impress as he had gotten out for 16 and 0 respectively.
