New Delhi, July 21: In a shocking news, Bangladesh fast bowler Mustafizur Rahman will not be available to participate in overseas T20 Leagues for next two years.
"It cannot go on like this. He will pick up injuries while playing in the franchise league and won't be available to perform national duty. It's just not acceptable. It cannot go on that he will be undergoing rehabilitation to recover from injuries under the care of the board, join those leagues again only to have a similar fortune," Hassan said.
So far Rahman has played only ten Tests, 27 ODIs and 24 T20Is for Bangladesh. Due to his recurring toe injury, Rahman also had to miss Bangladesh’s tour of West Indies where the Tigers suffered an embarrassing 2-0 whitewash. Prior to that, they were also beaten 3-0 by Afghanistan in a T20I series in Dehradun.
“The saddest part is that he (Mustafizur) gets hurt playing franchise leagues, and then can’t serve the country. It is not acceptable. I have already told him that he can’t play outside for the next two years,” Hassan stated.
