Miraz’s finger injury not serious

DHAKA, Bangladesh team management heaved a sigh of relief after all-rounder Mehidy Hasan Miraz confirmed that his finger injury is not that serious.

Miraz was seen to leave the ground on Saturday after sustaining a injury on finger that raised doubt.

However the off-spinner and a handy batsman lower down the order, Miraz said that the injury is a minor one and it won't take more than 2-3 days for him to return with bat and ball and he is working more on his physical fitness in meantime.

This is in good condition. Not a major problem. Maybe three-four day rest will be enough. I am not pleased as I'm not able to bowl or bat, maybe I can bat in two three days. But now I'm working more on physical fitness, Miraz said here on Sunday.

Ahead of the Test match and T20 tri-nation series in September, the 21-year-old all-rounder seeks inspiration from the senior members of his team as he believes it will help his to play better cricket if the junior players follow senior's footstep.

I like the fact that our senior crickets work really hard, I have seen closely. I have seen Shakib during the World Cup and he worked really hard for two months during the IPL. Mushfiq bhai (Mushfiqur Rahim) always works really hard. Riyad bhai (Mahmudullah) too works hard. And then Tamim, may be he could not perform as we expected but he works really hard too, he added.

As a junior player, we have a lot to learn from them. The junior members in our team, me, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mosaddek Hossain, Shoumya Sarker- we all have a lot to learn from the seniors. Because the amount of hard work they do, if we can do the same, I think our team will play a much better cricket, Miraz concluded.
