Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is likely to ask Mustafizur Rahman not to play in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) considering his workload before the busy the upcoming Asia Cup T20 and the World T20.
The board mentioned Mustafiz’s workload as the major worry. There is also concern within the Bangladesh team management of overexposing the left-arm pace bowler too soon.
BCB Chief Executive Officer Nizamuddin Chowdhury said, “He is a young prospect, so we don’t want to take any risk with him. We must consider his age and see whether he can take the load as there are other T20 assignments coming up after the PSL.”
Chowdhury informed that the board would take the advice of physicians before taking the final decision in this regard.
Mustafizur was picked up by the Lahore Qalandars franchise for $50,000 for Pakistan’s domestic T20 tournament to be held in the UAE from February 4, according to UNB. - Idrak
