​Rashid Khan Doubt For Tri-Series Final Against Bangladesh

After picking up a hamstring injury in Afghanistan’s last round-robin match during the tri-series in Bangladesh involving the hosts and Zimbabwe, Rashid Khan has emerged as a doubt for the tri-series final against Bangladesh.

In the eighth over of the second innings against Bangladesh, Khan pulled up in the field while trying to stop a run and looked in pain, before the physio came on to the field to assess him. He then had to leave the field, unable to carry on.

However, after some brief treatment he came back into the action and even took two wickets, but was visibly struggling through it all.

"I cannot say that he will be available (for the final)," Afghanistan manager Nazim Jar Abdur Rahim Zai told reporters after the match. "He is doing well and let's see what's happening. We will have two or three days for recovery. I hope it's not that serious because he is our captain and main player and we will monitor him tomorrow and the day after (before taking any decision).”

Bangladesh finally overcame Afghanistan in Chattogram to end a four match losing streak. The final will be played on September 24th in Dhaka at the Sher-e-Bangla national stadium.​
