BCB will send Saifuddin to England for treatment

(BCB) has decided to send all-rounder Mohammad Saifuddin to England to receive treatment for a chronic back injury.

The 21-year-old all-rounder has been suffering from back pain since the World Cup. Saifuddin said he sustained this injury during his age-level cricket, which was never healed properly.

Debashis Chowdhury, the chief physician of BCB, said that Saifuddin does not require surgery. But he did not reveal any treatment or rehabil;i the all-rounder.

Saifuddin did well in the World Cup, especially with the ball. He played the role of a strike bowler of the Tigers in the marquee event of cricket in England and Wales. He took 13 wickets to become the second most successful bowler for Bangladesh after Mustafizur Rahman who bagged 20 scalps.

The all-rounder is now out of action due to the injury. He missed the tour of Sri Lanka as well.  Saifuddin said on Friday that he is eager to return to action as early as possible.
