Ebadot Hossain: Bangladesh’s Maiden Win Against New Zealand Will Inspire Next Generations

Ebadot Hossain, Bangladesh pacer said that their win over inaugural World Test Championship 2019-21 winners New Zealand will inspire the next generations to do the same.

Ebadot Hossain picked up a six-wicket haul in the second innings as Bangladesh defeated New Zealand by eight wickets in the first Test at the Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui on Wednesday.

Ebadot Hossain: Victory Over New Zealand Will Inspire The Next Generations

Ebadot Hossain has become a household name overnight in Bangladesh after his stupendous performance with the ball in his side’s historic win against New Zealand in the first Test at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui. He picked up six wickets in the second innings as the visitors bowled out the Kiwis for just 169 runs and later they wrapped up the Test match losing just two wickets in the first session on the final day.

“We have come here for the last 11 years and not won a game. When we came this time, we set a goal and we said to ourselves we can do it. New Zealand are Test Champions and if we beat them then it will inspire the next generation to do the same,” said Ebadot Hossain after the game at the post-match presentation.

Talking about his rise and improvement, Ebadot Hossain gave credit for his success to the bowling coach Ottis Gibson saying that he has been learning how to bowl in overseas conditions.

“I have been working hard with Ottis Gibson. The conditions are too flat in Bangladesh and we are still learning how to bowl away from home. I am a soldier of Bangladesh and know how to celebrate (after a wicket). My journey from volleyball to cricket is a long story. I am enjoying my cricket,” he added.

Ebadot Hossain was adjudged the Player of the Match for taking 7 wickets in the game as the resounding win for the Bangla Tigers was followed by ‘one of the best post-match interviews ever’ from the tall pacer as he was his candid and honest best. The 27-year old pacer said that the team set a goal this time to beat the World Test Champions on their own soil and they had the belief that they can do it.

Bangladesh Registered First Test Victory Over New Zealand

With this win, Bangladesh has become the first team to defeat New Zealand in New Zealand a Test match since March 2017. This is also Bangladesh’s first Test victory over the BlackCaps. Bangladesh, a team at the lowest of ebbs only last month when they were swept at home by Pakistan, has taken down the world champions, mighty New Zealand, by eight wickets in the first Test in Mount Maunganui.

It’s the first time Bangladesh has beaten New Zealand in Tests, ending the hosts’ 17-match unbeaten home record. This is also the first time Bangladesh has beaten New Zealand in any format in New Zealand. It’s Bangladesh’s sixth overseas Test win – anywhere.

Needing 40 runs for the win, Bangladesh wrapped up the chase in overs with Mominul Haque (13*) and Mushfiqur Rahim (5*) remaining unbeaten at the crease. For New Zealand, Tim Southee and Kyle Jamieson picked up one wicket each in the second innings.  This was Bangladesh’s first-ever win on New Zealand soil in 32 matches across all formats and in the end, it was pretty comfortably done by the tourists.

Devon Conway had scored 122 in the 1st innings but the duo of Bangladesh skipper Mominul Haque(88) and Liton Das(86) ensured Bangladesh get a handsome lead in the 1st innings before Ebadot Hossain ensured New Zealand be restricted to only 169 in their 2nd innings.

Bangladesh 458 (Mominul 88, Litton 86, Boult 4-85) and 42 for 2 (Shanto 17, Mominul 13*, Mushfiqur 5*) beat New Zealand 328 (Conway 122, Nicholls 75, Shoriful 3-69, Mehidy 3-86) and 169 (Young 69, Taylor 40, Ebadot 6-46, Taskin 3-36) by eight wickets

Mushfiqur Rahim’s Axe From Pakistan T20Is Is Entirely Team Management’s Decision: Mahmudullah Riyad

Mahmudullah Riyad, Bangladesh captain, recently addressed questions about Mushfiqur Rahum’s exclusion from the home T20 series against Pakistan. Mahmudullah Riyad revealed he did not influence Mushfiqur Rahim’s omission from the squad and that Bangladesh would miss him.

Mushfiqur Rahim was a notable miss from the squad for the three-match T20 series, which began on November 19. However, the selectors have justified their decision by revealing they have rested the veteran. Chief selector Minhajul Abedin said they decided to do so, considering the team’s busy schedule ahead.

Mahmudullah Riyad: Mushfiqur Rahim’s Axe From Pakistan T20Is Is Entirely Team Management’s Decision

When asked, Mahmudullah Riyad revealed he is unaware of the selectors’ decision behind Mushfiqur Rahim’s omission. Citing the decision solely of the management, the 35-year-old stated that it would be better if the team management is asked for their opinions.

“If you ask the team management, it will be better. I am not sure what Mushfiqur said and can only say something after seeing it. This decision (excluding Mushfiqur from T20) is entirely of the team management and I am not ready to say anything in this regard, but all I can say is that we will miss Mushfiqur in the series.”

Mushfiqur Rahim had a forgettable T20 World Cup campaign in the UAE, managing only 144 runs in eight matches at 20.57. However, Bangladesh’s winless Super 12 run in the tournament is said to have prompted the selectors to revamp the squad and name plenty of youngsters.

Bangladesh Cricket Board has served Mushfiqur Rahim a show-cause notice after the veteran wicketkeeper’s outburst following his omission from the Pakistan T20I series. The selectors had said that the Bogra-born cricketer was rested, considering the four Tests against Pakistan and New Zealand that are part of the 2021-23 World Test Championship cycle.

Mushfiqur Rahim didn’t have the best of campaigns in the T20 World Cup 2021, after which he was sidelined. The veteran had poor outings even in Bangladesh’s bilateral home series prior to the multi-nation mega event in Oman and the UAE. He will now have to attend a hearing where he might be asked to put forth an explanation behind his reaction. Mushfiqur Rahim averages a mere 19.8 in 99 T20Is, managing only 1465 runs since his debut in 2006.

Mahmudullah Riyad Will Continue As Bangladesh Skipper If Board Thinks He’s Good Enough For The Role; Pakistan Wins 1st T20I

Mahmudullah Riyad also opened up on his captaincy position, which has come under scrutiny following an underwhelming World Cup campaign.

He said: “It is totally the team management or board’s decision. I am not too worried about it. I will continue if they think I am good enough. If I have to say about my position (as the captain), then I will have to say a lot of things and I don’t want to say it here.”

The three-match T20 series against Pakistan starts on Friday, with all three contests set to be hosted by Dhaka. The two sides will also play a couple of Tests following the T20Is.

Pakistan recovered from early blows to beat Bangladesh by four wickets in the first T20 international at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka. After being reduced to 24/4, Khushdil Shah’s knock of 34 helped Pakistan rally from the early blows and pipped the hosts to victory. Earlier in the day, Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah Riyad won the toss and decided to bat first.

Hasan Ali, whose dropped catch cost Pakistan dearly in the T20 World Cup semi-final, was the pick of the bowlers as he took three wickets. Mohammad Wasim Jr picked up two wickets as the hosts could only manage to reach 127/7 in their allotted 20 overs. Afif Hossain top-scored with 36 runs.

Mohammad Saifuddin Is Ruled Out Of 2021 T20I World Cup With Back Injury, Rubel Hossain Came As A Replacement

Mohammad Saifuddin, Bangladesh fast bowler, has been ruled out of the 2021 T20 World Cup with a back injury and will be replaced by experienced pace bowler Rubel Hossain. The International Cricket Council said on Tuesday.

Mohammad Saifuddin, 24, has played in all four of Bangladesh’s four matches so far, picking up five wickets across three qualifying games and finishing 1-38 in their opening Group II game against Sri Lanka in the Super 12 stage.

Mohammad Saifuddin To Be Replaced By Rubel Hossain

Rubel Hossain, who was initially named as a travelling reserve for the tournament, has played 159 matches at the international level, which includes 28 T20 internationals, in which he has picked up 28 wickets with an economy rate of 9.45. He was part of the reserves and is now in the main team after the all-rounder picked up a back injury.

Bangladesh, who lost to Sri Lanka by five wickets at the weekend, takes on England in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. Bangladesh scored only 124/9, and England has already scored 36 without losing a wicket. Mushfiqur Rahim top-scored with 29 as Tymal Mills picked 3 scalps.

Bangladesh Lost By 5 Wickets To Sri Lanka In The 1st Game

Against Sri Lanka, Mohammad Naim’s 62 and Mushfiqur Rahim’s unbeaten 57 took Bangladesh to a challenging total of 171 on the board for the loss of 4 wickets in their first innings after being put in to bat.
Sri Lanka, in their chase, suffered a lot of hiccups by losing wickets at regular intervals and was reduced to 79 for the loss of 4 wickets at the 10th over. However, Charith Asalanka and Bhanuka Rajapaksa created a marvellous partnership, and it was enough for the Sri Lanka side to get off to a win in the end.

Bangladesh Saw Two Defeats – One In T20I WC Against Scotland And Another Was The Communal Violence: Mashrafe Mortaza

Mashrafe Mortaza on Monday reacted to the communal violence taking place in his country and called it the ‘two defeats’ in reference to their losing start to the ICC T20 World Cup tournament taking place in Dubai.

Scotland stunned fancied Bangladesh by six runs after Chris Greaves’ magnificent all-around display for a dream start in the ICC T20 World Cup on an eventful Sunday night in Al Amerat. Chris Greaves led a brilliant lower-order fightback with a 28-ball 45 as Scotland recovered from a hopeless situation to post 140 for nine in their first-round Group B opener of the T20 showpiece.

Mashrafe Bin Mortaza: Bangladesh Saw Two Defeats Including The Communal Violence Which Destroyed Heart

Meanwhile, communal violence rocked Bangladesh after an alleged blasphemy incident at a Durga Puja pavilion in Cumilla, bordering Chandpur and about 100 km from Dhaka, leading to the deployment of paramilitary forces in more than half of administrative districts.

Several incidents of attacks on places of worship of minority communities by unidentified Muslim men were reported from across the country. Several houses of Hindus in Bangladesh were also set on fire late on Sunday in a village in Rangpur district’s Pirgonj Upazila, about 255 km from Dhaka, as per reports.

Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, who is also a Member of Parliament, posted a picture of the burning village in Pirganj, Rangpur, and wrote, “We have seen two defeats yesterday [Sunday]. One was the Bangladesh team’s defeat, which has hurt me. And, another defeat belongs to the whole of Bangladesh, which has destroyed my heart.”

“We never wanted this version of Bangladesh. Many dreams and many stories of fights of lives have finished in a blink of an eye. May Allah show us the right way,” said Mashrafe Bin Mortaza.

The attacks began last Friday and have claimed at least five lives while leaving several injured.  Bangladesh’s former captain, Mashrafe Bin Mortaza has reacted to the ongoing violence against minorities in his home country.

There has been a series of attacks on the Hindu community of Bangladesh. This series of violence against Hindus, who are in minority in Bangladesh, started after a supposed besmirching of the Quran at a Durga Puja pandal in Cumilla district last week.

Chris Greaves Does Well With Both Bat And Ball As Scotland Shocks Bangladesh

Choked by spin and reduced to 53 for 6, Scotland found a hero in Chris Greaves, who led a thrilling counter-attack with a 28-ball 45 to push the total to 140 and then returned with the ball to prize out the crucial wickets of Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan to pave the pay for a memorable victory.

Chris Greaves had played a solitary T20I heading into this first game of the T20 World Cup but he belied that inexperience with a thrilling counter-attack.

Brief scores: Scotland 140/9 in 20 overs (Chris Greaves 45, George Munsey 29; Mahedi Hasan 3-19, Shakib Al Hasan 2-17) beat Bangladesh 134/7 in 20 overs (Mushfiqur Rahim 38; Bradley Wheal 3-24, Chris Greaves 2-19) by 6 runs.

Shakib Al Hasan Is Available For Scotland Match But Tired After Playing IPL: Mahmudullah

Shakib Al Hasan, fresh from Kolkata Knight Riders’ appearance in the IPL final on October 15, is “tired” but available for Bangladesh’s first match against Scotland in the T20 World Cup, confirmed captain Mahmudullah.

In the IPL 2021 second leg at UAE, Shakib Al Hasan has been a silent contributor with his bowling—pulling off spells of 1/20, 1/1, 0/24, 0/28,0/33. Like before, Shakib Al Hasan continues to be indispensable for KKR.

Shakib Al Hasan Is Available But Tired After Playing For KKR In IPL: Mahmudullah

Shakib Al Hasan played 8 matches for KKR in IPL 2021 and picked 4 scalps bowling 26 overs and managed 47 runs.

”Shakib is available. Probably he is a bit tired after coming back from the IPL but he is there with us,” Mahmudullah said.

Bangladesh, admittedly missing their full-strength squad, lost both their warm-up games but the captain said that he’s not worried about the warm-up losses but is only focused on the upcoming games for now. Bangladesh batsmen failed to get going in the practice games, finishing with scores of 147-7 and 144 all-out against Sri Lanka and Ireland respectively. They eventually lost both the matches, by four wickets and by 33 runs.

”I am not bothered what others are saying and I feel as a team we have the ability. We are not bothered about the practice games as we missed few players and now we know what we have to do,” Mahmudullah told reporters ahead of their opening encounter against Scotland.

”We will play hard cricket and if we can play to our potential result will take care of itself. We have to cross a few barriers and we want to go step by step and I hope if we can play good cricket tomorrow we can go a long way.”

Bangladesh will have to play the qualifying tournament of the ICC T20 World Cup this year. Bangladesh’s Twenty20 side defeated hosts Zimbabwe 2-1 in July, beat Australia 4-1 at home in August and completed a 3-2 series victory against New Zealand in Dhaka.

Veteran all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan says that the team will take confidence from series wins against Australia, New Zealand, and Zimbabwe. Bangladesh’s star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan believes that series wins against Australia, New Zealand and Zimbabwe will boost their chances at the T20 World Cup despite a record that shows just one victory at the tournament since 2007.

Mahmudullah Has Full Faith In Out Of Form Mushfiqur Rahim

Mahmudullah added that he has full faith in Mushfiqur Rahim’s form and feels that he just needs to have one good match to regain his touch. Mushfiqur Rahim, who failed to be available against Australia at home for failing to report before the bio-bubble deadline, managed to score 39 runs in the five-match T20 home series against New Zealand. Furthermore, he scored 0, 13, and 4 respectively against Oman A, Sri Lanka, and Ireland.

”We are not concerned about Mushfiqur form and he will come back. He just needs one good innings to regain his form and it might be tomorrow. We all know about his capability and we fully back him.”

In Group A, Bangladesh is slotted alongside Scotland, Oman, and Papua New Guinea, and looks like they are well-placed to qualify to the Super 12 of the ICC T20 World Cup.

Bangladesh is coming into the tournament with nine T20I wins in the calendar year, only behind South Africa who have 12. In fact, since losing to New Zealand in March away from home, Bangladesh has registered series wins over Zimbabwe (2-1), Australia (4-1), and New Zealand (3-2).

And if they manage to qualify, Bangladesh will join India, Afghanistan, New Zealand, Pakistan, and the Group topper in the Super 12 and that should be incentive enough for Bangladesh.

Russell Domingo Reveals Mushfiqur Rahim Doesn’t Want To Keep In T20Is Anymore

Russell Domingo, Bangladesh head coach has revealed that Mushfiqur Rahim does not want to do wicketkeeping in the shortest format of the game anymore. Russell Domingo’s revelation came after Bangladesh’s defeat in the third T20I against New Zealand on Sunday.

Mushfiqur Rahim has informed the Bangladesh team management that he will no longer keep wickets in T20Is, according to Russell Domingo. Mushfiqur Rahim didn’t keep wicket in the 3rd T20I against New Zealand, although it was declared before the series that he would split wicketkeeping duties with Nurul Hasan in the first four games.

Russell Domingo: Bangladesh’s Mushfiqur Rahim Doesn’t Want To Keep Wickets In T20Is Anymore

Russell Domingo said that they have to quickly move on to allow Nurul Hasan, who has been keeping wicket in Bangladesh’s recent cluster of T20Is since mid-July, to be the No. 1 wicketkeeper going into the T20I World Cup.

This is the first time that Mushfiqur Rahim has told the team management that he wants to give up wicketkeeping. Normally, he has insisted that he wants to play as a wicketkeeper-batter, particularly in the last five years when his wicketkeeping has come under the scanner. The most recent occasion was the second ODI against New Zealand in March this year when he dropped Tom Latham at a crucial stage of the game.

“There has been a change in plans. Initially, after speaking to Mushy, he was going to keep after the second game. But he told me he probably doesn’t want to keep wicket in T20s anymore, so we have to move on. I don’t think Mushfiqur’s desire to keep in this format is great anymore. We have to focus on Nurul Hasan Sohan, and let him do those duties going into the competition,” ESPNcricinfo quoted Russell Domingo as saying.

Mushfiqur Rahim is yet to come out in the open and reveal his side of the story on why he does not want to don the wicketkeeping gloves in the shortest format of the game. Spinner Ajaz Patel’s four-wicket haul helped New Zealand defend 128 and defeat Bangladesh by 52 runs in the third T20I of the five-match series here at the Shere Bangla National Stadium on Sunday.

With this win, New Zealand registered their first win of the series and the five-game series stands at 2-1 in favour of Bangladesh. The fourth T20I will now be played on Wednesday. Chasing 129, no Bangladesh batter got going and the top-scorer was Mushfiqur Rahim as he played a knock of 20 runs. The Bangladesh innings folded inside 19.4 overs.

Nurul Hasan Is In Good Form Behind The Stumps

When Mushfiqur Rahim missed the T20Is against Zimbabwe and Australia due to a family emergency, Nurul Hasan took over with good form both behind and in front of the stumps. It opened up a bit of competition between the two, which the team management decided should be settled by splitting the wicketkeeping duties over four matches of a five-match series.

Mushfiqur Rahim has been a regular wicketkeeper in ODIs and till 2020, in T20Is. His inclusion as a wicketkeeper-batter allows the team to have the luxury of playing two world-class all-rounders. But there are many in Bangladesh who believe, with reason, that Mushfiqur Rahim should focus his energy on only batting, as he is arguably Bangladesh’s best all-format batter.

At the same time, Nurul Hasan’s reputation as the country’s best wicketkeeper is backed by good domestic performances this year. For the selectors and team management, he was too hard to ignore as the wicketkeeper in Bangladesh’s white-ball teams.

Left-arm spinner Ajaz Patel claimed a career-best 4-16 as New Zealand kept alive its Twenty20 series against Bangladesh with a thumping 52-run victory in the third game on Sunday. Off-spinner Cole McConchie (3-15) and left-arm spinner Rachin Ravindra (1-13) also played their part in dismissing Bangladesh for only 76 in 19.4 overs after New Zealand had recovered from 62-5 to a total of 128-5 on a slow surface.

Bangladesh Cricket Board Confirms Mustafizur Rahman Isn’t Interested To Play Tests

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) introduced a format-wise contract on September 1, without handing one to Mustafizur Rahman for Test cricket. According to the Bangladesh Cricket Board, the 25-year-old ace pacer informed Bangladesh Cricket Board about his unavailability due to increased time spent in the bio-bubbles.

Ever earlier, Mustafizur Rahman had expressed his discomfort of playing continuous cricket in the bio-bubbles, now a norm during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bangladesh Cricket Board’s Cricket Operations Chairman Akram Khan Said Mustafizur Rahman Isn’t Interested To Play Tests

Currently, he’s playing in the home T20I series against New Zealand and is soon expected to move to another bubble for Rajasthan Royals (RR) during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, which is resuming in September. He will then be entering another bubble for Bangladesh during the T20 World Cup.

Akram Khan, the former Bangladesh captain, and Bangladesh Cricket Board cricket operations chairman confirmed the development surrounding Mustafizur Rahman’s Test contract.

“Mustafizur is not interested to take part in Tests at the moment. He told us that it is difficult for him to concentrate on Tests, playing it under bio-bubble and so he does not want to take part in Tests at the moment. We have taken that decision very positively and have discussed it and accepted his request because he is a very important player for Bangladesh in the white-ball format,” said Akram Khan, Bangladesh Cricket Board Cricket Operations Chairman.

Mustafizur Rahman, one of the best pace bowlers in white-ball formats, has been a force behind Bangladesh’s success in recent years. The left-arm pacer has 127 wickets from 68 ODIs at an average of 22.83. In T20Is, he has 71 wickets from 49 matches at an average of 18.91.

He was one of the stars for Bangladesh in their 4-1 win in the T20Is against Australia last month. In fact, he has been exceptional in the shortest format in 2021, bagging 13 wickets from eight T20Is at an average of 11.69 and an economy rate of 5.46. He has played 14 Tests picking up 30 scalps averaging above 35.

Akram Khan Explains Bangladesh’s New Contract System

Akram Khan further explained the need for a new format-wise contract system for Bangladesh, keeping in mind players like Nasum Ahmed and Shamim Hossain, who are only a part of the T20I squad.

He explained: “We have introduced format wise contract because there are cricketers like Nasum and Shamim who are only part of T20s. Earlier if it was white ball that implied ODIs and T20s but now a new group is coming up who are only playing in T20s.”

Akram Khan added: “We have made different payment slabs based upon performance and we kept that so that there is competition between cricketers. When a cricketer is coming to Test from T20s there is a raise and similarly, when he is coming to ODIs there is some raise so players will be eager to perform so that he can be considered across formats.”

Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Liton Das, Taskin Ahmed, and Shoriful Islam are the only five players who have been handed a contract across all three formats. Bangladesh cricket is currently enjoying a good run. Having secured a win after bowling out New Zealand for their joint-lowest T20I total of 60 in the first game, they are set to square off in the second match on Friday.

The Tigers won the first game of the series by seven wickets after they bowled the Black Caps out for a paltry 60 in a mere 16.5 overs. In the run-chase, the Tigers lost Mohammad Naim and Liton Das early but chased the target down with 30 balls to spare. Bangladesh has won the last T20I series against Australia (4-1) and the ODI series against Sri Lanka(2-1) and Zimbabwe (3-0).

Mahmudullah Recalled To Bangladesh Test Squad

Mahmudullah has been recalled to the Bangladesh Test squad after an absence of over a year. The 35-year-old batsman, who is the captain of the Bangladesh T20I team, last played a Test in February 2020.

Injuries to senior players keeper Mushfiqur Rahim and Tamim Iqbal led to the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) turning to Mahmudullah.

Mahmudullah Returns To The Test Squad While Shakib Al Hasan Whose Last T20I Came In September 2019 Returns To T20I Squad

Mahmudullah played the last of his 49 Tests in January 2020, against Pakistan in Rawalpindi, and was subsequently left out of the series against Zimbabwe last year and against West Indies and Sri Lanka this year. Mahmudullah was also among a handful of cricketers to be given a white-ball-only central contract in 2020.

He averages 31.77 amassing 2764 runs from 93 innings in 49 Tests but was inconsistent and didn’t show much sign of improvement in the lead-up to his axing. He was in form in early 2019, scoring 22, 146, 13, and 67 in the two-Test series in New Zealand, but then had a top score of 39* in four Test matches, where he totalled only 109 runs in eight innings. Though out of the red-ball side, the 35-year-old has been a regular in the Bangladesh white-ball teams.

“During an emergency meeting yesterday that included the selectors, the board president (Nazmul Hassan) and myself, we decided that we can’t take a chance with the injuries,” BCB cricket operations chairman Akram Khan is quoted as saying.

“Because of the situation, we decided to make the squad bigger. We are 80 percent sure that he (Rahim) can play, but we don’t want to take a chance. We want to have a backup batsman in the squad.”

The Zimbabwe tour also marks the return of all-rounder and former captain Shakib Al Hasan to the Bangladesh Test and T20I squads. Shakib Al Hasan last played a Test match against West Indies in February.

He missed the three Tests against Sri Lanka as he was playing for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the 2021 Indian Premier League before the tournament was postponed due to a bio-bubble breach. His last T20I came in September 2019, after which a thigh injury forced him out of Bangladesh’s tour of New Zealand.

Bangladesh Plays Zimbabwe In 1 Test, 3 ODIs And 3 T20Is

Tamim Iqbal also returns to the T20I squad after taking leave from the New Zealand tour. Bangladesh plays Zimbabwe in one Test, three ODIs, and as many T20Is in a tour that will last from July 7 to July 27.

Tamim Iqbal withdrew from the Super League stage of Prime Bank Cricket Club’s campaign in the Dhaka Premier League (DPL) after suffering a knee injury, while Mushfiqur Rahim has a fractured finger, which he sustained last week while playing in a DPL match. The wicket-keeper batsman, in a major blow to Bangladesh, had fractured his index finger ahead of the Zimbabwe series.

Mushfiqur Rahim Has Come Up With A Hairline Fracture On His Left Index Finger

Mushfiqur Rahim had earlier chosen to skip the T20I series during the Zimbabwe visit. He informed the Bangladesh Cricket Board about his choice. This is the first run through Mushfiqur Rahim has requested a break in his international vocation up from when he has been injured. Since making his first appearance in 2005, he has addressed Bangladesh in 74 Tests, 227 ODIs, and 86 T20I games.

“We did a CT scan on Mushfiq’s hand, which has come up with a hairline fracture on his left index finger,” ESPNcricinfo quoted Debashish Chowdhury, BCB’s chief physician, as saying.

“We have asked him to take a break of one week, but we are hopeful that the recovery won’t take too long since it is a hairline fracture. We will review the injury after one week, and then we can determine what to do next,” he added.

Bangladesh is slated to leave for Zimbabwe on June 29 to lock horns in a one-off Test, three ODIs, and as many T20Is. The ODI series will form part of the inaugural 2020–2023 ICC Cricket World Cup Super League. Bangladesh last toured Zimbabwe in April and May 2013. Originally, two Test matches were scheduled to be played on the tour, but one of them was removed in place of an extra T20I match.

Mushfiqur Rahim Had Earlier Informed The Selectors That He Wanted To Pull Out Of The T20I Series Against Zimbabwe

Earlier this month, Mushfiqur Rahim had informed the selectors that he wanted to pull out of the T20I series against Zimbabwe. Last month, Bangladesh clinched the ODI series against Sri Lanka 2-1 after suffering a loss in the third ODI. Mushfiqur Rahim played a key role in Bangladesh’s triumph scoring 237 runs in three games including a stunning ton.

After the series win, Bangladesh head coach Russell Domingo said he wants the side to come out victorious in games away from home. Bangladesh’s recent 2-1 win over Sri Lanka was their tenth ODI series win at home out of the last 11 such engagements going back to 2015. However, the picture is very different when playing ODIs – perhaps their favourite format – away from home.

They have the best win-loss ratio at home since April 2015 (minimum 20 ODIs played), but among the worst away win-loss ratios in the same period. This, a result of Bangladesh having lost five out of seven away ODI series in this period, their only win coming against West Indies in 2018 after tying the series against Sri Lanka the previous year.
