Mohammad Saifuddin has been troubled with back issues.

BCB chief selector Minhajul Abedin has confirmed that Saifuddin will not be able to recover in time for the three-match series. However, the final decision will be taken tomorrow after a discussion with the team physio.

”I don’t think he will be able to play [against India in the T20 series],” BCB’s chief selector Minhajul Abedin told Cricbuzz on Sunday (October 20). ”We will talk with Julian [physio] tomorrow to take a final decision, but what I understand is that it won’t be possible for him to take part in the T20 series,”‘ he added.

In fact, the fast bowler is having back woes for a while. He had also played with back issues in the ICC World Cup 2019. The all-rounder was also included for the ODI series against Sri Lanka but he was ruled out with the back problem at the last minute.
