Saifuddin eyes quick recovery

Bangladesh national team all-rounder Mohammad Saifuddin  who  has been ruled out of forthcoming Sri Lanka series, aiming a quick recovery from his lower back injury to get back into full fitness as soon as possible.

Talking to the reporters at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium yesterday  he said, playing for country is above all top priority. It means a lot for not being able to play a single match for the national side. It’s obviously an ‘opportunity lost’. In his mixed experience he said,  “the most important aspect for me is that, neither I  want someone to settle down and grabs the opportunity in place me nor he plays bad cricket, rather I want everyone plays better cricket.”

When asked about his injury update he said, I had just entered rehab for two days.  I’ve been following the instructions of our physio Debashis Da (Debashis Chowdhury), the chief physician of Bangladesh Cricket Board) and our trainer Tushar Daud. I will stay here until Eid and after Eid Vacation I’ll restart rehab again, he added.

“I’ve enough time in my hand before Afghanistan series which is scheduled to be played in September this year and I hope I’ll get back into field due time and will be available for selection for that series, he also added.

In another injury-related query he said, there was a speculation that, I used an injury as an excuse to get out of the match against Australia in the recently concluded World Cup but I don’t want to make any comment on that now.

Actually, for us cricketers, we have nothing to say bit to give our answers through on-field performances. I think it won’t be fair to talk about what happened in past rather what’s the challenge ahead of me, how would I do better for my team is much more important to me and that’s my main target too, he opined.

I also request you (journos) not to report any false news regarding cricketer’s injury. If you publish true and verified news, it‘ll bring something  good both for our cricketers’ and Bangladesh cricket, he concluded.
