Senior tiger batsman Mahmdullah Riyad showed his urgency to get fit as early as possible in a bid to make him available in Bangladesh’s crucial game against mighty India on Tuesday at the Edgbaston in Birmingham.
Seeing him to try hard to be fit for India match, Bangladesh team management is confident that they will get the service of the senior player who has the ability to take the opponents bowling in disdain in the death overs.
He would have to go through a fitness test to make him available for the match. Riyad’s availability in the must-win game against Virat Kohli & Co. remained a major concern for Tigers as he suffered calf muscle injury during their last game against Afghanistan and later it was revealed that he had sustained grade 1 tear.
BCB officials were in a dilemma more so after he was seen walking in a crutch following morning but they seemed to be heaving a sigh of relief as he joined the practice session at Edgbaston in Birmingham on Sunday.
