In a recent development, a Chennai Super Kings (CSK) star suffered an unfortunate blow to his head during a training session and had to be rushed to a hospital. The player, who is currently plying his trade in the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League (BPL 2024) for Comilla Victorians, was left bleeding after the knock. 

The incident happened when a shot from Litton Das, who was batting in the adjacent net, hit pacer Mustafizur Rahman. Mustafizur received immediate medical attention at the venue before being transported to the hospital in a standby ambulance for further treatment,

However, subsequent CT scans have now confirmed that Mustafizur did not sustain any internal bleeding.

A media release issued by team physio SM Zahidul Islam Sazal clarified:

"During practice a ball hit directly at the left parietal area (head) of Mustafizur Rahman. There was an open wound at his parietal area and we have worked with compression bandage to stop bleeding and immediately shifted him to Imperial hospital,"
