Mustafizur was also in doubt to miss the fifth edition of Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) but now it has been informed that he will only miss some of the matches.
The cutter master told online news portal Bangla Tribune on Saturday: “I didn’t do anything. I was going forward with the ball, no one was near the ball and suddenly I got hurt in my ankle. I don’t know whether I will be able to play BPL or not. But I will play only when I become fully fit.”
BCB Academy’s Physio has minimized the possibility of Mustafizur not playing in BPL: “Its not possible to say anything about him now. We will be able to tell next week when he can return. But he will not miss the entire BPL, he might miss only some of the matches.”
Mustafizur also told reporter about his experience in the South Africa tour: “Obviously there were some problems. The condition was totally different. I had no experience playing there before. But my speed has increased a bit, I am happy for that. This time, I couldn’t bowl some deliveries according to my plan, hopefully I can do that in future.”
The left arm seamer will feature for Rajshahi Kings this season. He was named the Icon player of Barishal Bulls at first but due to some problems Barishal are omitted from the tournament and then Rajshahi Kings picked Mustafizur from the player draft.
