Bangladesh coach Chandika Hathurusingha believes Mustafizur can develop very quickly by playing in England. English county side Sussex has already signed the young Bangladesh paceman but he is nursing a hamstring injury. According to sources Mustafizur is also looking for some rest after a hectic IPL schedule where his team ended up winning the trophy. There has been a lot of speculation whether this special player should be pushed too much or nurtured carefully.
If Mustafizur plans to join Sussex, he will be playing the NatWest T20 Blast and the Royal London One Day Cup. The left arm seamer is one of the rare Bangladesh players to get a chance to play in England. Hathurusingha said in a statement,” It is a rare opportunity for Bangladeshi players to play there. If I can send four players I will send them all. It is the best way to do it.” He also added “We all know that his mystery is going to be found out very soon, so at the same time I am looking forward to his cricketing intelligence. So we will find ways for him to be competitive. Our challenge is look after him and develop him and keep him in the pack to play for Bangladesh.”
