Mustafizur welcomes his former team-mate to BPL

Mustafizur Rahman played under the leadership of David Warner for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Mustafiz with Warner
Mustafiz has a close relationship with the Australian batsman and they have met with each other after a while, all thanks to the BPL. However, the fast bowler won’t be playing under the leadership of Warner this time as he has signed for Sylhet Sixers while Mustafiz will play for Rajshahi Kings.

Warner led Sunrisers Hyderabad to their first ever IPL title in 2016 and it was also Mustafizur’s first season where he picked up 17 wickets and played a crucial role for Sunrisers in winning the trophy.

As the BPL is all set to kick-off on 5th January, Sylhet Sixers’ skipper Warner has already arrived in Bangladesh and Mustafizur welcomed his former team-mate with a heartful message.
