Media Release : Ankle injury rules Shafiul Islam out of 2nd Test

Paceman Shafiul Islam has sustained a right ankle injury while fielding at practice on Tuesday and has been ruled out of the 2nd Test match against the West Indies which starts at Sabina Park today.  

An X-ray has revealed no bone injury. National Team Physio Thihan Chandramohan said the current diagnosis was a Grade 2 lateral ligament sprain with medial bone bruising: “He is unavailable for selection for the 2nd Test and will likely be unavailable for three to six weeks depending on further assessment. He will remain with team and travel home after the match. We expect the acute swelling to reduce by that time.”
