National team selector Habibul Bashar said on this account, “He is not available for the opening game of NCL as he’s yet to recover fully from the ankle injury to take the load of longer-version cricket.

“According to the physio, Mustafizur is yet to bowl certain amount of overs in the practice match that will confirm whether he is fully fit to take the load of bowling 25 to 30 overs a day.

“We are hoping to have him in the second phase of NCL as he is expected to complete the required amount of bowling during this time frame,” Bashar added.

Priorly BCB announced that those who are willing to be a part of the squad for the forthcoming tour of India, must participate in the first two round of the National Cricket League scheduled to start on October 10 and that no one will be allowed to be out of the country’s first class competition without any valid reason.

The decision saw senior cricketers like Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah Riyad taking part in NCL in four years.
