Former Bangladesh skipper Khaled Mahmud is likely to be taken to Singapore for treatment after he suffered a stroke on Saturday morning.
According to ESPNcricinfo, a family member confirmed on Monday that the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is arranging an ambulance to the airport this afternoon. The 46-year-old, the current team manager and a board director, went into coma on Sunday evening when he was moved to the intensive care unit of United Hospital in Dhaka.
Speaking to a Bangladesh newspaper, The Daily Star, the BCB media committee chairman Jalal Yunus said: “The members of the BCB learnt of his condition after making enquiries into why he was absent from today’s (Sunday’s) board meeting. He was admitted to hospital yesterday morning and is currently in the ICU. He is in a semi-coma, but the CT scan has not revealed anything too serious.”
Mahmud was Bangladesh’s third Test captain, leading them in nine games in 2003 along with 15 ODIs the same year. He retired from international cricket in 2006 and ventured into coaching and administration soon afterwards.
