Bangladesh nearly secured their qualification for the subsequent stage with a powerful 89-run victory over Afghanistan on Sunday.
Bangladesh batsman Litton Das has rejoined the Bangladesh staff for the Tremendous 4 stage of the Asia Cup 2023 after recovering from viral fever.
Beforehand, Das was unable to hitch the squad in Sri Lanka for the match opener as a consequence of his sickness. Nevertheless, after receiving a clearance certificates from the medical staff, the wicketkeeper-batsman will now be part of the squad for the Tremendous 4 stage of the match, as confirmed by the ICC.
Bangladesh nearly secured their qualification for the subsequent stage with a powerful 89-run victory over Afghanistan on Sunday. Within the absence of Das, Mehidy Hasan Miraz stepped as much as the highest of the order and delivered a memorable century. Until Afghanistan manages to defeat Sri Lanka by a major margin to enhance their extraordinarily poor web run fee of -1.780, it’s extremely doubtless that Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will qualify from Group B.
Though the Tigers suffered a defeat of their opening match in opposition to Sri Lanka, their overcome Afghanistan has secured their spot within the Tremendous 4 stage.
“The Asia Cup squad has a number of damage issues and the staff administration felt the necessity for an extra participant going into the Tremendous 4,” the Bangladesh Cricket Board choice panel Chairman Minhajul Abedin stated as quoted by ICC.
“We now have obtained the BCB Medical Group’s clearance concerning Litton’s well being and have determined to ship him to Pakistan.”
It will likely be intriguing to witness how Bangladesh reorganizes their batting order with the return of Das. Within the earlier match in opposition to Afghanistan, Mehidy and Mohammad Naim have been assigned as openers after Tanzid Hasan failed to attain any runs within the opening recreation.
Moreover, Najmul Hossain Shanto has been in glorious type, scoring a century within the Afghanistan fixture whereas batting at No.3. If Das returns to the highest of the order, it’s doubtless that Mehidy will probably be shifted again to his standard batting place decrease down the order.
