Minister Rajshahi got a massive jolt just one day ahead of the Bangabandhu T20 Cup as their premier all-rounder and national team member Mohammad Saifuddin hurt his left ankle during training in Mirpur today.
The pace-bowling all-rounder was seen leaving the ground on a crutch, with his left leg bandaged. He got into the team bus and was reportedly taken for tests.
"During training he (Saifuddin) got an ankle injury. He is now under observation of team physio and BCB medical team," Hanna Sarker, manager of Minister Group Rajshahi, said in a message to media.
"Treatment is going on under medical protocol of BCB. Physio will inform further update of his progress tomorrow," added Sarker.
Rajshahi will play against Beximco Dhaka in the opening match of the Bangabandhu T20 Cup on Tuesday.
