Mustafizur Rahman leaves for England to play for Sussex
20 July 2016, Nirapad News: Bangladesh pace sensation Mustafizur Rahman left for England today morning to play for Sussex in the Natwest T20 Blast.
Before boarding his flight at the airport, Mustafiz said, “I have many things to learn. Please pray for me.”
Tigers Test skipper Mushfiqur Rahim greeted the young pace sensation in front of the BCB Academy prior to Mustafiz’s departure to the airport.
This is his second trip to the English land after his maiden tour to the UK in August 2013, when he was a member of the Under-19 cricket team.
Mustafiz is likely to play the very next day as his team take on Chelmsford Essex County Cricket Club on Thursday.
Sussex team sources said the pace sensation will play for them in the Royal London One Day Cup and the Natwest T20 Blast, meaning he will play in seven matches. However, the number will increase should the team qualifies for the knockouts.
