Bangladesh left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak and his family members suffered injuries during a road accident in Gopalganj on June 27. Thankfully, they are in stable condition after initial treatment and are recovering in the hospital. According to reports, Razzak was travelling with his family from Khulna when their vehicle met with an accident. However, the injuries are said to be ‘not serious’, and the Bangladeshi cricketer seems to be out of danger.
Further reports claim that he was driving the vehicle when the incident took place. He was along with his wife and two-year-old son, and his nieces and older sister were also in the vehicle. When a tire punctured, the cricketer apparently lost control and the car fell into a canal by the side of the road. Everyone present in the vehicle suffered some minor injuries and were then assisted by local police.
