Ebadat had sustained the injury during a training session on October 23, soon after he returned to Dhaka from the practice match against England in Chittagong. “He has a grade two tear for which it can take three to four weeks to recover,” team physio Bayjidul Islam said.
Ebadat was a surprise pick in the 22-man squad announced on Friday, especially with Kamrul Islam Rabbi, Rubel Hossain and Al-Amin Hossain being ignored for the Australia camp.
Ebadat works for Bangladesh Air Force, for whom he played volleyball before winning a pace-bowling hunt earlier this year. He was picked in the BCB’s high performance programme in which he impressed former Pakistan fast bowler Aaqib Javed, who was a consultant with the BCB, before making his first-class debut for Sylhet Division.
The Bangladesh squad will depart for Sydney in two batches on December 9 and 10 for a ten-day camp before heading to New Zealand to play three ODIs, three T20s and two Tests.
