Al-Amin Hossain sent back home


Bangladesh are to send fast bowler Al-Amin Hossain home from the World Cup for breaching a team curfew.

The Bangladesh Cricket board confirmed on Sunday that the 25-year-old  will take no further part in the tournament.

Hossain had broken team rules by being outside their hotel in Brisbane after a 22:00 deadline.

CricInfo reported  the board were informed of the breach by the anti-corruption and security unit (ACSU) of the International Cricket Council.

Hossain did not feature in Bangladesh’s 105-run win against Afghanistan while their second game against Australia in Brisbane was abandoned.

Their next match is against Sri Lanka in Melbourne on Thursday.

It is not clear whether Hossain will be replaced in the 15-man squad.
