Khaled Mahmud, the former Bangladesh skipper, suffered a stroke on Saturday (July 29) and was reportedly critical even after being admitted to a city hospital in the country capital, Dhaka. Cricbuzz has learnt that Mahmud underwent MRI scans at 10.30 AM on Monday (July 31), reports of which revealed nothing too serious. However, he is expected to be flown to Singapore at night for further treatment.
Earlier, speaking to a Bangladesh newspaper, The Daily Star, the BCB media committee chairman Jalal Yunus had said:
“The members of the BCB learnt of his condition after making enquiries into why he was absent from today’s [Sunday’s] board meeting. He was admitted to hospital yesterday morning and is currently in the ICU.
“He is in a semi-coma, but the CT scan has not revealed anything too serious,” he added. Yunus had also mentioned that Mahmud could be taken to Singapore for better treatment, if needed./
