The Bangladesh Cricket Board official said on Wednesday that Test pace bowler Khaled Ahmed will go under the knife as he had damaged his left knee during the Eid-ul-Fitr break of elite camp recently.

BCB officials said that the MRI report suggests that he had damaged his meniscus to an extent that surgery will be required to recover fully and it will take at least three to four months to recover fully.

  ‘’As per the MRI report Khaled had damaged his meniscus of the left knee to an extent that there is no alternative but for a surgery,’’ BCB’s physio Bayjedul Islam said.  

‘’He will be out for at least three to four months after completing the surgery,’’ he added.

It can be considered a huge blow as he was a front runner to feature in the four-day matches against Afghanistan A. Bangladesh A team will host Afghanistan A for a series comprising with two four-day matches followed by five 50-over matches from July 5.

Khaled admitted that he is disappointed with the present state of affairs.

‘’I was watching a World Cup game of Bangladesh at my home and suddenly I felt like a muscle cramp. I tried to move my leg quickly in order to free my muscles and unexpectedly hurt myself,’’ said Khaled in a disappointing tone.

Khaled, who played two Test matches so far, made his debut against Zimbabwe in 2018 while he played his last Test at Hamilton in New Zealand in February 2019.

‘’It’s a huge blow as we wanted to prepare him for the upcoming Test series by providing him a platform to bowl longer spells during the four-day matches against Afghanistan A,’’ said chief selector Minhajul Abedin.

Bangladesh will take on India in two-match Test series from November 14 at Indore following their three Twenty 20 internationals, beginning on November 3 while they will play the last Test in Eden from November 22 and Khaled was very much in the team management’s plan of the scheme.
