Afghanistan captain Rashid Khan said he is unsure he will play in the tri-nation Twenty20 international final against Bangladesh on Tuesday as he is nursing a hamstring injury.
Rashid left the field injured against the same opponents in their last match of the league phase in Chittagong on Saturday, before returning to bowl two overs and picking 2-27 in their four-wicket loss.
“I can’t say anything right now,” Rashid Khan about his chances of playing in the final.
“I had some work on my hamstring yesterday and today. We will decide tomorrow.”
Rashid said he would rather not have bowled in the previous game, but the team needed his services.
“The main reason to come back to bowl was that I wanted to know the severity of the injury,” he said.
“The physio and coaches didn’t want me to bowl. I was OK with the first two overs, but after going for a run it got worse.
“I think I shouldn’t have bowled, but when the team needs you, you have to be there. We give our all for the country.”
Rashid said that if he even had a “10 percent chance” to take to the field, he would give it a shot.
“I saw how Asghar (Afghan) came to play four days after his appendicitis operation in Zimbabwe. I love my country, and I want the country to win, rather than myself
