26-year-old Bangladesh all-rounder Nasir Hossain will undergo a surgery on his right knee after suffering an injury during playing football. It is expected that the all-rounder will miss the cricket for around next six months.
During playing football, Nasir Hossain suffered an injury on the ligament of his right knee. He needs to undergo an operation to heal from it.
BCB’s chief physician Debashish Chowdhury stated on Tuesday, “Primary assessment showed that he has a badly injured ligament on his right knee. To know more we had sent him for an MRI [yesterday] and it shows he had torn his ligaments and will require an operation. We are yet to decide whether it will be completed at home or abroad. But as it stands, he will certainly be out of cricket for the next six months.”

The national selector Habibul Bashar stated regarding Nasir’s injury, “Every cricketer should have a clear knowledge regarding his priorities. Certainly it will make him pay as he will surely lose few opportunities that seemed to be lying ahead for him to grab.”
However, Nasir Hossain has felt disappointment on his injury news as he claimed that his injury didn’t occur during playing the football.
The Bangladesh all-rounder told Cricbuzz, “It is quite disappointing to see what is happening with me. I had twisted my knee while running during a personal visit outside Dhaka but there is no truth whatsoever regarding the allegation that it was sustained while playing football. I did not anticipate that my injury will be projected in this manner by the media and it is simply hurtful, to say the least.”
Last time the right-hand batsman and right-hand off-break bowler had featured for Bangladesh national team during the home ODI tri-series in last January where Bangladesh had participated with Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe.
Just a few days ago, he hit a brilliant century in the domestic 50-overs game. While he was looking for the next opportunities to make a claim for a permanent place in the national team squad, the injury hit him.
Nasir stated on that, “Since completing the century in the last game of the league, my focus clearly returned on my own game as that innings helped me to regain the confidence that was lacking for not being able to contribute as per my expectation. I knew that there are some opportunities coming up for me to prove my worth and make a claim for a permanent place in the national dressing room.”
