Sikandar Raza Out For An Indefinite Period After Bone Marrow Infection

Cricketer Sikandar Raza who plays for Zimbabwe will miss out on cricketing action for an indefinite period of time as he suffered from a bone marrow infection.

According to the reports, the cricketer was suspected to have bone cancer and underwent surgery on April 2 and got the tumor removed. Doctors have cleared Raza of any serious illness.

Raza, who is at home during cycles of medications and injections, said he felt a lot of pain in his right arm for the first time during the Zimbabwe-Afghanistan series in Abu Dhabi last month.

In his recent interview, he said that,

“I felt pain in my right arm during the tests in Abu Dhabi, I treated it as if it were muscle pain at first, but the pain continued to get worse. I remember staying up all night, unable to sleep, despite sleeping pills. That’s how I played the test matches.

He said that

“After I came home, the ultrasound showed that my muscles were fine. The MRI showed that I had a strange or strange substance in the bone marrow. Seeing this, the surgeon told me that this substance could leave my shoulder bones very. Weak. So I could fracture it just by throwing a ball. He suggested that I do a biopsy right away. I wanted to wait until the Pakistan series, but he insisted otherwise. He said that because of the deformity seen in my bone biceps, they suspect cancer. “

The team is currently playing the T20I series against Pakistan. The team is also scheduled to play two Tests.
