Nafees joins Mumbai to help out Mustafizur
Bangladesh left-armer Mustafizur Rahman is set for his third season in the IPL and the star bowler will be looking to make his mark with his new team Mumbai Indians, having featured for Hyderabad Sunrisers the past two editions of the tournament.
To help and guide the left-armer, former Bangladesh opener Nafees Iqbal has joined the Mumbai Indians. Communication in a foreign language is still difficult for Fizz and Nafees has joined the franchise to help the left-armer with team strategies and instructions while communicating in English.
Nafees was the manager of BPL outfit Khulna Titans side last season -- a side coached by Mahela Jayawardene. It is understood that Mahela had suggested that the Mumbai outfit hire Nafees to help out with language barrier.
“It happened all of sudden and now I am in the Mumbai tent. My job will be to guide Mustafizur in the tournament and ensure the team management gets the best out of him,” Nafees told the media.
Earlier yesterday, Mumbai Indians welcomed Mustafizur with a facebook post and said the Bangladesh star pacer was feeling very much at home in his new team.
