Big blow to Bangladesh, leading fast bowler out of Asia Cup 2023

Bangladesh Cricket Team’s leading fast bowler Ebadot Hossain has been ruled out of the upcoming Asia Cup (Asia Cup 2023) due to a knee injury. Hossain suffered this injury last month during the ODI series against Afghanistan. He was included in Bangladesh’s 17-member Asia Cup squad 10 days ago but was unable to recover from his rehab program in time, which led to his exit.

He also performed brilliantly in the recently concluded Emerging Asia Cup, taking 9 wickets in 3 matches. He also bowled well in the Dhaka Premier League.
