This young pace bowler of national team was called up for the New Zealand tour of Bangladesh but due to injury he won’t make his comeback in the team.

He is now more focused with the NCL and told, “I played my first game today and by the grace of God everything went well. As of now, my body is working fine and I am feeling no pain anywhere, so that’s a good sign. However, that is all I am thinking about. I don’t know if I will play in the Tests or if will go to New Zealand. As of now I am completely focused on the NCL.”
