Bangladesh’s wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim has declined to visit Pakistan for the forthcoming collection, a group official stated on Thursday. “Mushfiq(ur) rang me today to inform that he will not go to Pakistan. We are now waiting for his formal letter. Once he does that, we will leave him out of the series,” chief selector Minhajul Abedin advised AFP.
Bangladesh are scheduled to play three Twenty20 internationals, two Tests and one one-day worldwide in Pakistan between January and April.
Mushfiqur’s absence may very well be a blow for Bangladesh who’re already with out suspended all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan.
Minhajul stated they’re possible to announce the squad for the collection in a day or two.
International cricket has steadily returned to Pakistan within the final 4 years after it was suspended within the wake of terrorist assaults on the Sri Lankan group bus in Lahore in March 2009.
