Bangladesh pacer Mustafizur Rahman has been out of cricket from a while due to injury during the South Africa tour. After couple of months, Mustafizur is finally fit to participate in the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League (BPL). [বাংলায় পড়ুনঃ কুমিল্লার বিপক্ষে ফিরছেন মুস্তাফিজ!]
Mustafizur will feature for Rajshahi Kings who have already played 7 matches. The cutter master missed both the Sylhet and Dhaka leg but is all set now to play in the Chittagong led.
Rajshahi’s team physio Bayezid Ahmed said: “We are observing Mustafiz since last few weeks after he returned from South Africa tour. We have completed his rehabilitation phase after he joined Rajshahi team in Dhaka phase of BPL. He has bowled in four sessions in last few days including today’s practice. Today he took part in running sessions including five overs bowling in the nets.”
He added: “So far Mustafiz has no complain about his injury. As a physio point of view I am confident about his fitness. As Mustafiz has no complain physically, so we can say that he is fit.”
The young pacer injured his leg while playing football in the practice session just before the start of the ODI series against South Africa and that kept him out for the remaining matches of the tour and also for the first two weeks of BPL.
Mustafizur’s inclusion in the Rajshahi camp might turn their fate as they had a horrible tournament so far winning only 2 matches after playing 7 matches and they are at 6th in the points table.
