Litton Das has joined the Bangladesh squad in Lahore in preparation for the Super Fours of the Asia Cup. Litton, who was originally ruled out of the competition due to illness, rejoined his teammates on Monday evening after obtaining medical clearance.
Minhajul Abedin, the senior selector for Bangladesh, stated that Litton was added to the roster due to a number of injury concerns.
During his century against Afghanistan, Najmul Hossain Shanto grasped his hamstring several times. Mehidy Hasan Miraz also experienced finger cramping throughout his lifetime and retired in pain.
Previously, Mustafizur Rahman sustained an injury against Sri Lanka on August 31 in Pallekele and was unable to participate against Afghanistan.
“The Asia Cup squad has a few injury concerns, and team management felt the need for an additional player going into the Super Four,” Abedin explained. “We have received the BCB medical team’s clearance regarding Litton’s health and have decided to send him to Pakistan.”
Bangladesh qualified for the Super Four after defeating Afghanistan by 89 runs in their final group match on Sunday in Lahore.
