B’desh pacer Mustafizur joins CSK


Share post:


Dhaka, April 7: Bangladesh pacer Mustafizur Rahman returned to Chennai to join his side Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Sunday after completing his visa procedure.
Mustafizur came back to Bangladesh from IPL on April 2 as the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) called him to complete the visa process for the USA where the T20 World Cup will be held alongside West Indies in June, reports BSS.
Mustafizur was the part of CSK in the first three matches and took seven wickets so far to occupy the second spot. Chennai played the last game without him and lost the game.
However, CSK will take on Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) Monday and Mustafizur is expected to be available for the selection.
Rahman’s international career highlights include his debut series against India in 2015, where he made an immediate impact, taking five wickets in his first two matches. He has also played in the Pakistan Super League, representing Lahore Qalandars, although his participation was initially hindered by the Bangladesh Cricket Board’s reluctance to let him play there. However, a shoulder injury prevented him from participating in the league in 2016. In 2015, Rahman was included in the ICC ODI Team of the Year, recognizing him as one of the top cricketers of that year. (Agencies)
