Bangladesh’s top run-getter in the ongoing Asia Cup Najmul Hossain Shanto will be out of action with a hamstring issue. The left-hander, who scored 89 and 104 in the group games against Sri Lanka and Afghanistan respectively, felt some discomfort in his left hamstring during the course of his innings against Afghanistan in Lahore on Sunday. An MRI was performed on Monday of the affected area.

National Team Physio Bayjedul Islam Khan said: “The player had complained of hamstring pain during batting and could not field. We had an MRI scan done confirming a muscle tear. As a precaution, Shanto will not take any further part in the tournament and will be returning home to start rehab and prepare for the World Cup.”
