Airee, who was included in the playing eleven for the opening match against Singapore, twisted his ankle just before the game began. He was replaced by Bibek Yadav.
Airee was rushed to Medicity Hospital for scans. He was seen on crutches with his legs heavily wrapped.
“He has torn his anterior talofibular ligament. We, along with the medical team, are working hard to get him back to the team as soon as possible,” the cricket team doctor Abhishek Rajasinh to Onlinekhabar.
The Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) also confirmed that Airee sustained an ankle sprain. CAN does not know if he will take part in the qualifiers.
