Mushfiqur to return home after Sri Lanka game
Bangladesh's wicketkeeper-batter Mushfiqur Rahim is slated to return to the country after the match against Sri Lanka, team management sources have confirmed to The Daily Star.
Mushfiqur's wife is expecting, which is why the experienced batter would return to the country after the second Super Four game against Sri Lanka on Saturday. There will not be any replacements needed for Mushfiqur as he is expected to join the team before Bangladesh's last Super Four game against India.
"He will return to the country after the game [against Sri Lanka]. His wife is expecting, so it will happen after this game [Sri Lanka game]. The next game is on 15th [September], so there's a break of 6-7 days and he will head back [to Sri Lanka]," the source said.
Bangladesh lost their first Super Four game against Pakistan by seven wickets. The team management would be happy to get Mushfiqur's services during this critical period as the Tigers now need to get results in their remaining games to make it to the final.
