The Bangladeshi fast bowler has an ankle injury and he can only bowl not more than 15 overs
Bangladeshi left-arm fast bowler Mustafizur Rahman suffered an ankle injury. He was dropped for the opening round of the National Cricket League (NCL). The chief selector of the BCB eyes Rahman to play for the second round. However, the bowler has to go through a fitness test to see if he’s capable to play.
‘The physio had given us some guidelines. He was supposed to play from the very first match. However, because he has some minor problems with his ankle, he was not able to take the full load and therefore, was unable to play the first match (of the NCL)’, chief selector Minhajul Abedin said.
Abedin also added that Rahman is currently in the recovery phase. The fast-bowler will not be able to bowl more than 15 overs per day. The team management considered it in order to maintain Rahman’s fitness throughout the tournament.
Bangladesh Cricket Team is scheduled to tour India. It will begin on November 3 with its first Twenty20 International match. After the T20I series, it will be followed by the Test series. The results of the Test matches will be counted for the ICC World Test Championship.
