Mushfiqur will take part in the second Test even with an injury.

There has never been any question regarding Mushfiqur’s commitment to step up at the time of his country’s need, and once again he is going to put up a valiant proof of that.

Mushfiqur, considered technically the best Test batsman of the country, hurt his finger on Wednesday (November 29) during the team’s first formal practice session ahead of the second Test.

While practicing indoor, Mushfiqur suffered a bruise on his finger, and the BCB doctor Debashish Chowdhury asked him to take a day off. He took rest accordingly, while Debashish confirmed the injury was not serious.

“e (Mushfiqur) hurt his finger a little. The good news is X-ray reports did not show any sign of fracture. I don’ think it would be grave anyhow. But as a precaution, we have rested him for the day,” said the BCB doctor.

Later in the day, Mushfiqur’s teammate Mominul Haque revealed that Mr. Dependable was looking to play the upcoming Test match even if his finger is broken!

“I hope he is alright,” said Mominul. “As far as I am informed, he will play even if the finger is broken. However I don’t think it’s anything of that sort. Hopefully he will recover in time.”

This is not the first time Mushfiqur is playing overlooking the injury scare. Just a few months ago, he took part in the Asia Cup in spite of having pain in his ribs.
