Mushy declines to tour Pakistan

Mushfiqur Rahim has declined to visit Pakistan for the forthcoming series, which will start with three Twenty20 Internationals later this month.

“Mushfiqur rang me today to inform that he will not go to Pakistan. We are now waiting his formal letter. Once he does that, we will leave him out of the series,” chief selector Minhajul Abedin told AFP.

Minhajul also said they are likely to announce the squad for the series in a day or two.

“Mushfiqur expressed his desire during initial discussions between the board [Bangladesh Cricket Board] and the players, so it’s not a new development. Let’s wait for the team announcement to clear about everything,” BCB CEO Nizamuddin told The Daily Star yesterday.

Mushfiqur’s absence could be a blow for Bangladesh who are already without suspended all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan.
