Bangladesh’s international cricketer Suhrawadi Shuvo, who suffered a serious hit on the side of his neck yesterday, was released from the hospital on Sunday (June 19) after CT and MRI scans revealed no damage to his brain as a result of a bouncer striking the side of his neck.
The 27-year-old, who as playing for Victoria Sporting Club, was hit on the head while he was trying to duck under a rising delivery from his countrymen Taskin Ahmed. The incident happened during his club’s Dhaka Premier League match against Abahani Limited at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.
The cricketer has been released from the hospital and has been scheduled for further check-ups in coming weeks. He will not be available to play his side’s remaining matches on June 20 and 22.
With 17 wickets at an average of 29.52 and 208 runs at an average of 26, he has been one of Victoria SC’s key performers this season. The left-arm spinner has featured in 17 ODIs for Bangladesh where he had bagged 14 wickets. Shuvo was also a part of the World Cup 2011 squad.
He has the best bowling figures of 3 for 14 against New Zealand, which was a match winning performance. He had also played one T20 international and one Test match (where he picked up 4 wickets) for Bangladesh.
Previously, Bangladeshi umpire Nadir Shah was struck on the forehead game between Mohammedan Sporting Club and Kalabagan Cricket Academy on Tuesday in Fatullah last week. Shah immediately fell to the ground and had to be attended by a physio. He was moved out of the field and was replaced by the reserve umpire Saiful Islam.
