Ebadot Hossain's exclusion from the ODI World Cup in 2023 is a major setback for Bangladesh

Ebadot Hossain’s exclusion from the ODI World Cup in 2023 is a major setback for Bangladesh. Due to a knee injury, Bangladeshi pacer Ebadot Hossain will not play in the upcoming ODI World Cup in 2023. The main event will get underway on October 5 when England, the defending champion, takes on New Zealand at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium.

The 29-year-old right-arm quick, who was a member of the initial squad, suffered an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury during the ODI series against Afghanistan last month and has not recovered enough following rehabilitation to be taken into consideration for further action.

“Ebadot underwent rehabilitation for six weeks after the accident. Since then, we’ve had a number of MRIs, and the results indicate that his ACL is still a concern and needs to be managed further. As a result, he is excluded from the Asia Cup or ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, according to BCB Chief Sports Physician Dr. Debashis Chowdhury.

On October 7, Bangladesh will face Afghanistan in their opening match at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamshala.

Ebadot won’t be available for us during the World Cup, BCB chief selector Minhajul Abedin said on Wednesday, according to Cricbuzz.

“Given the significance of the ICC World Cup in October, the Bangladesh team‘s next major competition, the BCB is committed to exploring every safe medical option available for getting Ebadot back to full fitness and playing as soon as possible,” he said. “This includes consultation and treatment abroad.”

As Ebadot’s replacement in the Asia Cup squad, BCB’s National Selection Panel has selected pacer Tanzim Hasan Sakib, who has no prior experience.

In 37 List-A games, the 20-year-old has 57 wickets to his name. Sakib took nine wickets from three games in the recently finished ACC Emerging Men’s Asia Cup. With his selection, there are now five players in the squad who were a part of the squad that won the 2020 ICC U19 World Cup, joining Tawhid Hridoy, Shoriful Islam, Shamim Hossain, and Tanzid Hasan Tamim.
