Nurul Hasan Sohan has been named as a concussion replacement for an injured Yasir Ali for the remainder of the first Test in Chattogram. During the Tigers’ second innings, Pakistan fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi hit Yasir on the side of the helmet with a hard bouncer on the last delivery of the 30th over. In an attempt to duck, Yasir moved his gaze away from the ball. The physio came out right away to examine Yasir, who appeared to be in some difficulty. Yasir, who was making his international debut during the game, walked off the field after a few overs. In the middle, Mehidy Hasan Miraz joined the in-form Liton Das. Following that, it was revealed that Nurul Hasan had been called in to replace the 25-year-old Yasir.

Nurul, although being a wicketkeeper, will not be keeping wickets because Yasir Ali was not. Liton Das, who was born in Dinajpur, will continue to wear the wicketkeeper’s gloves. Yasir has been a regular in Bangladesh squads across all formats, but finding a spot in the eleven has become a challenge for him. However, the boy was eventually given a chance.

He opened with a four in the first innings of the Chattogram Test before Hasan Ali rattled his woodwork with a dipper. In the second inning, Yasir appeared to be on a mission to earn a big score. He came to bat at No. 6 with Bangladesh under pressure and put his head down. In the first innings, he formed a useful combination with Das, who scored a century.

Yasir was batting on 36 with six fours when he returned to the pavilion. Meanwhile, Nurul Hasan entered the fray when Sajid Khan dismissed Mehidy Hasan in the 43rd over. Nurul Hasan has played three Tests so far, averaging 19.16 and scoring 115 runs with a best score of 64. On Saturday, December 4, the second and final Test of the two-match series will begin at Dhaka’s iconic Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium. It’s unclear whether Yasir Ali will be able to heal in time for the series’ final game.
