Mehidy Hasan Miraz doubtful for Ireland series ODI opening match

Bangladesh all-rounder Mehidy Hasan Miraz appears to be an unlikely starter for the opening game of the three-match ODI series against Ireland that begins on Saturday (March 18). Mehidy endured a blow to his forehead and eyes by a football during the team’s training session at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium. While the initial scans didn’t show anything serious, Mehidy’s subsequent visit to the eye specialist detected a blood clot in the eye, putting his participation in the first ODI in doubt.
