Very little chance for Mustafizur to play in PSL: BCB president
Bangladesh Cricket Board President Nazmul Hassan Papon today said there is little chance for Bangladesh bowler Mustafizur Rahman to play in the Pakistan Super League.
He also indicated that BCB will take a decision in the board meeting on giving Mustafizur financial compensation in this regard.
The BCB president spoke to reporters during a press briefing this afternoon.
“Mustafizur is physically not that strong. He is still working on building his muscles. He is very weak and he expressed some pain in the last match. It will be difficult for him to play outside in this state. We will not take any chance on him before the ICC T20 World Cup,” Papon said.
“If he does get well soon he will play the Asia Cup, if he stays fit then he will play the World Cup, but I believe that in his current situation it is difficult to send him to play outside,” the BCB president added.
Mustafizur, who in 2015 became the first Bangladesh cricketer to feature in the ICC's ODI team of the year, is among four Bangladesh players picked in the PSL's draft, alongside Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim.
