Three members of Bangladesh emerging team playing against Sri Lanka were injured in a road accident on their way to Dhaka from BKSP in Savar on Wednesday evening, reports UNB.
Mehedi Hasan Rana, Zakir Hasan and Monir Khan were travelling in separate microbuses.
Hasibul Hossain Shanto, the team manager, said the cricketers came back to the national academy after receiving first aid. “They’re okay,” he said.
Mehedi, the pace-bowler, got hurt in his chest while Zakir hit his head and Monir’s leg was injured. All of them are in the stand-by list of the emerging team.
On Wednesday, the emerging team played their second one-day of the three-match series at BKSP and beat Sri Lanka by two wickets with the help of fifties by Najmul Hossain Shanto and Yasir Ali.
With this win, Bangladesh levelled the series 1-1. The third and final one-day is scheduled for August 24 at Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium in Khulna.
After the one-day series, both teams will play a two-match four-day series. The first four-day match will be played in Khulna and the second one in Chattogram.
