Bangladesh faces another backlash as the rib injury of Liton Das. The player is the wicket-keeper and a middle order batsman in the team. Dropping the player, the team will need a replacement in the team. Although Mushfiqur Rahim will do the wicket keeping taking the role of Liton, his position as a batman in the team is still vacant. Rahim is an all-rounder in the team who has been strong with bowling as well as batting.
Liton Das suffered a rib injury while practicing on nets and is now under treatment. He was hit on the rib cage while batting on the practice nets. The players were practicing at P Sara Oval on Monday. The player did not realize the severity of the injury, soon and continued to bat. However, Liton could not practice on the following day before the second test at the stadium. Later, when the pain increased, medics were called up and a minute fracture was spotted on his rib. The test that began the following day did not include the player.
The player was being dropped from the test squad for almost two seasons of 21 months before being included in the recent team. His comeback was in the Galle Test, where he had a moderate contribution compared to other players, even if it was not better. In the first test, he could score 5 runs in the first inning and 35 runs in the second. Being the wicket keeper, he also removed two wickets catching them behind the stumps. Liton was keeping the wickets taking the position from skipper Mushfiqur Rahim. Meanwhile, Rahim was focusing on batting up the higher order in the team.
The current series has two matches and Bangladesh has lost the first one. The team has included itself in the test itineraries with other countries lately. Before the Sri Lanka test, the team toured India for a single test in Hyderabad.
