Yesterday, Mushfiqur Rahim passed his fitness test which made him qualified for the BCL and Zimbabwe series.
Mushfiqur chose to be out of the Pakistan tour because of security reasons and was ruled out of the opening round in the Bangladesh Cricket League. Due to this, there were rumours that he will not be included in the upcoming series against Zimbabwe.
However, the BCB’s chief physician, Debashis Roy reported that Mushfiqur is fit to play cricket. The wicketkeeper-batsman was recovering after suffering a hamstring injury. Now, he is available for the first-class domestic tournament, BCL which will start this Friday, February 7.
On top of that, Roy has confirmed that Bangladesh’s Imrul Kayes has also passed the test after sustaining a calf injury.
Roy said, ‘Mushfiqur Rahim and Imrul have been struggling with hamstring and calf muscle. They were undergoing rehab programmes. Mushfiqur had a grade-one injury, so we had hoped that he would recover by the second week of February’.
Regarding the rumours about the upcoming Zimbabwe series, the National Chief Selector, Minhajul Abedin said that they are anticipating Mushfiqur's performance in the BCL on February 7. They need to observe his performance in BCL before he will be considered for the Zimbabwe series.
Currently, the Bangladesh cricket team (+420) is in Pakistan (-555.56) for the upcoming Test series this coming Friday, February 7.
