Three young cricketers  injured in road accident

Three members of Bangladesh emerging team playing against Sri Lanka were injured in a road accident on their way to Dhaka from BKSP in Savar on Wednesday evening, reports UNB.

Mehedi Hasan Rana, Zakir Hasan and Monir Khan were travelling in a separate microbus.

Hasibul Hossain Shanto, the team manager, said the cricketers came back to the national academy after receiving first aid. "They're okay," he said.

Mehedi, the pace-bowler, got hurt in his chest while Zakir hit his head and Monir's leg was injured. All of them are in the stand-by list of the emerging team.

On Wednesday, the emerging team played their second one-day of the three-match series at BKSP and beat Sri Lanka by two wickets with the help of fifties by Najmul Hossain Shanto and Yasir Ali.

With this win, Bangladesh levelled the series 1-1. The third and final one-day is scheduled for August 24 at Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium in Khulna.

After the one-day series, both teams will play a two-match four-day series. The first four-day match will be played in Khulna and the second one in Chattogram.
