Chief selector Minhajul Abedin Nannu said, “Mushfiqur pulled his hamstring. We cannot say anything further. We will have to visit to Cape Town to know further about the nature of the injury.”

Meanwhile young pace sensation Mustafizur Rahman will not be able to participate in any of the matches further in South Africa.

Skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza informed about the nature of the injury of Mustafizur saying he would be sidelined for rest of the ODI series; the cutter master is under the risk of missing of T20I series as well.

Chief Selector Minhajul Abedin said, “So far we have observed, Mustafizur will have to be out of the team for the whole one day series.”
