Bangladesh have no major injury scare ahead of their upcoming one-off Test against the neighbouring Indian side though team management face a tough call to get players ready in mentally and physically.

The recently concluded tour in New Zealand was an injury-laden tour for Bangladesh with as many as four key players suffering some sort of injuries. Of them, Bangladesh Test skipper Mushfiqur Rahim took up bat first time after returning home from month-long-tour in New Zealand with injury ahead of the upcoming one-off Test against India.
Yesterday Rahim did his batting practice at net for a longer period at the Mirpur Indoor Stadium (MIS), where the national team’s assistant Nasir Hossain helped him in training session. 
Test skipper missed the last two ODI matches coupled with the entire T20 series for being sustained in finger injury after the tour opener. Even he could not play the second and last Test of the two-match Test series in New Zealand because of pain in his thumb after enduring multiple blows in the first Test en route to his scoring 159. 
A scan was done there but the report reveals no fracture, which makes team management confident like Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) sports physician Debashis Chowdhury.
Chowdhury believes that Test skipper will recover in due time prior to the one-off Test against India.
“The injury Mushfiq had in finger that was scanned in New Zealand but no fracture yet been detected in his scan report. For this we are not worried about the intensity of his injury,” said Debashis Chowdhury. 
“After his arrival in Dhaka, we start physio-therapy on him. The progress is satisfactory level. Today he takes up bat first time. There will be no problem for him to take part in games after January 31 if his progress continues in this way,” Chowdhury told media at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium (SBNCS).
Debashis said of Imrul Kayes that they have to bring him back in sports carefully so that reinjury did not keep him out of sports.
“In Dhaka, we did an MRI of Imrul Kayes’ injury, where ‘grade-1’ strain has been detected. But the progress of his development is very satisfactory. If his progress is going on in this way, we could then be back him again in sports after February 1,” he said.
“But we have to keep in mind that Kayes has been suffering in muscle strain injury. In that case, there remains a re-injury possibility. If he comes back in premature phase then he will have a possibility of reinjury,” he said, adding “We have to deal with him meticulously. So hopefully he will come back after one week if his treatment and progress could go on in same vein.”     
On the other hand, paceman Mohammad Shohid, who has been suffering from ACL ligament injury, still remains injured. Shohid sustained injury in ligament during the BPL-4. He impressed all with his bowling performance. Before being injured he took 15 wickets off eight matches for newly-emerged champion Dhaka Dynamites.
He could not tour in Australia-New Zealand due to injury. Since then, BCB sports physicians were trying to heal him by conservative management but could not get the expected result. So, they are now mulling to send him in Australia to do surgery. 
“We were trying to recuperate him by conservative management since one month back. But now we think that the conservative management will not be enough for him to be fully healed. And so, we are trying to send him Australia for better treatment,” said Debashis. 
“He will travel to Australia in the next week if his logistic arrangement is ready,” he also said. 
“His injury will be reassessed there by our old surgeon David Young. Surgery might be done for Shohid if Young suggests after being reassessed,” he added.
Earlier, pacer Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, Shahadat Hossain Rajib, Mohammad Shorif, Abul Hasan Raju and Alauddin Raju were treated by this Australian surgeon.
