Ebadat Hossain to miss preparatory camp in Australia

Fast bowler Ebadat Hossain is set to miss the Bangladesh preparatory squad’s training camp in Australia next month after he was diagnosed with a side strain. A replacement has not yet been named.

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.
