Former Australian cricket captain Steve Smith will drop out of the Bangladesh Premier League Twenty20 tournament due to an elbow injury after playing just two matches, his franchise Comilla Victorians said Thursday. “Smith has suffered an elbow injury. Salahuddin said he expected Smith to return to the league once he had recovered from the injury. Comilla signed Smith initially as a back-up to Pakistan’s Shoaib Malik but later added him to the squad following clearance from the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB). Smith is currently serving a one-year ban from international cricket and Australia’s domestic Sheffield Shield and Big Bash leagues over a ball-tampering scandal last year.
