In a recent development coming in, a star Bangladesh fast bowler has been ruled out of the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024, slated to be held in June in USA & West Indies. The decision comes after it was sanguined that he cannot make a timely recovery for the mega-event. 

The news was confirmed by Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) chief physician Debashish Chowdhury to Cricbuzz on Wednesday (April 10). The news comes in contrast to the pacer recently informing the media that he was eyeing to make a comeback for the showpiece event.

Ebadot Hossain underwent surgery for his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, which he suffered during Bangladesh's home series against Afghanistan in July 2023 when he collided with an umpire while bowling.

Debashish Chowdhury, on the contrary, said that there is no chance for the right-arm pacer to make a comeback.
