Mosaddek Hossain is likely to miss the two-match Test series against India, starting with Indore Test on November 14, as he had to return to Bangladesh due to family emergency.
He returns to Bangladesh on Monday with the players, who were part of the T20 squad, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) said in a press release.
On Sunday, Mosaddek missed the series deciding T20, due to groin problem but was expected to be fit ahead of the Test series, with which Bangladesh would start their World Test Champions journey.
The Bangladesh team however reached Indore on Monday without Mosaddek, BSS reports.
Mosadek returned home for some family problems, the BCB press release added.
People close to him said Mosadek’s mother is very ill and needs an operation according to doctors. Mosadek wants to be with his ailing mother during this time.
As Mosadek is not with the squad, Bangladesh will have 14 members to choose for the Indore Test. BCB still do not know the seriousness of his mother’s illness and hence did not think of a replacement yet for the all-rounder.
