Mustafizur Rahman available for Sri Lanka tour


2017-02-17

Bangladesh Cricket Board has confirmed that paceman Mustafizur Rahman will be available for the full tour of Sri Lanka next month.

Bangladesh’s chief selector Minhajul Abedin indicated Rahman’s availability after watching the fast bowler’s performance in his latest domestic first-class appearance.

In two matches for South Zone in the Bangladesh Cricket League, Mustafizur has taken four wickets in 48 overs.

He was excluded from the side for the one-off Test against India to give him time to recover fully from a shoulder surgery.

Mustafizur underwent surgery in August last year after injuring his shoulder in July, while playing in England.

He was picked for the New Zealand tour but struggled, taking five wickets in the four limited-overs matches.

Mustafizur said that he is back to full fitness and had regained confidence in bowling longer spells.

He is expected to join the national camp next week.

Bangladesh will tour Sri Lanka between 2nd of March to the 6th of April.
