Hours after Bangladesh team manager Khaled Mahmud confirmed that all-rounder Mahmudullah would not be a part of the playing XI for the Colombo Test and would fly home on the eve of the match, BCB president Nazmul Hassan claimed the player's return would be a personal decision and not one taken by the team management. The Test, which begins Today in Colombo,
will be Bangladesh's 100th and Mahmud had said that given the match would be an emotional, landmark occasion, it was decided not to keep a high-profile, senior player sitting on the bench. Hassan said the decision to either stay in Colombo or return to Dhaka was up to Mahmudullah. The second test match between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh commence today at P. Sara stadium in Colombo.
