Pacer Mustafizur Rahman is all set to play his 3rd season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) which will begin on Saturday. After playing two seasons with Sunrisers Hyderabad, he will now feature in Mumbai Indians who will be defending their title.
In the Mumbai Indians team, the little master Sachin Tendulkar is an integral since the first edition of this tournament. From captaining the team to mentoring the team, he has done it all and it was only a matter of time for Mustafizur to meet the legend after joining Mumbai Indians.
On Friday night, the young fast bowler met with Sachin in the team hotel and posted the picture on his twitter with a lot of appreciation for the former Indian batsman.
He tweeted: “Precious and memorable moment with the legend @sachin_rt sir. Glad to meet with him.”
Three time IPL winners Mumbai Indians wants to bring out the best of Mustafizur and they desperately want to utilize him properly. For that, they also came up with a smart idea.
They have hired former Bangladesh opener Nafees Iqbal who is also the elder brother of Tamim Iqbal. Nafees will work as a translator of Mustafizur and will help him to communicate better with the coaching staff and players of Mumbai Indians.
The eleventh edition of IPL will begin on April 7 and we might see Mustafizur in the very first match as Mumbai Indians will be taking on Chennai Super Kings in the season opener.
