Mehidy Hasan Miraz of Bangladesh appears to be an unlikely starter for the first game of the three-match ODI series against Ireland, which begins on Saturday. (March 18).
Mehidy is said to have been hit in the face and eyes by a football during a training session at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium. While the initial scans revealed nothing serious, Mehidy’s subsequent visit to the eye specialist revealed a blood clot in the eye, casting doubt on his participation in the first ODI.
“He is under observation and let’s see what happens because there is some blood clot in his eye and it is red,” said a BCB official to Cricbuzz.
“There’s a little bit of a concern with his (Tamim) health. Not fitness. I think he has some kind of a viral infection. He will bat and field today. We will make the call afterwards,” Head Coach Hathurusingha told reporters at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium on Friday.
