Mohammad Saifuddin, Bangladesh fast bowler, has been ruled out of the 2021 T20 World Cup with a back injury and will be replaced by experienced pace bowler Rubel Hossain. The International Cricket Council said on Tuesday.

Mohammad Saifuddin, 24, has played in all four of Bangladesh’s four matches so far, picking up five wickets across three qualifying games and finishing 1-38 in their opening Group II game against Sri Lanka in the Super 12 stage.

Mohammad Saifuddin To Be Replaced By Rubel Hossain

Rubel Hossain, who was initially named as a travelling reserve for the tournament, has played 159 matches at the international level, which includes 28 T20 internationals, in which he has picked up 28 wickets with an economy rate of 9.45. He was part of the reserves and is now in the main team after the all-rounder picked up a back injury.

Bangladesh, who lost to Sri Lanka by five wickets at the weekend, takes on England in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. Bangladesh scored only 124/9, and England has already scored 36 without losing a wicket. Mushfiqur Rahim top-scored with 29 as Tymal Mills picked 3 scalps.

Bangladesh Lost By 5 Wickets To Sri Lanka In The 1st Game

Against Sri Lanka, Mohammad Naim’s 62 and Mushfiqur Rahim’s unbeaten 57 took Bangladesh to a challenging total of 171 on the board for the loss of 4 wickets in their first innings after being put in to bat.

Sri Lanka, in their chase, suffered a lot of hiccups by losing wickets at regular intervals and was reduced to 79 for the loss of 4 wickets at the 10th over. However, Charith Asalanka and Bhanuka Rajapaksa created a marvellous partnership, and it was enough for the Sri Lanka side to get off to a win in the end.
