The injury-prone Bangladesh pacer Mustafizur Rahman is once again in the spotlight for his injury woes. The latest concern is regarding his troubles with his ankle with chief selector Minhajul Abedin stating that the left-armer will have to prove his fitness in the domestic National Cricket League (NCL) before the team departs for the India tour.
"He (Mustafizur) will have to prove his fitness in the NCL game to be considered for the upcoming Test series against India. The physio had given us some guidelines.
He was supposed to play from the very first match. However, because he has some minor problems with his ankle, he was not able to take the full load and therefore, was unable to play the first match (of the NCL)," Abedin said.
Bangladesh is scheduled to play three T20Is and two Test matches in India next month, with the red-ball games their first assignment under the World Test Championship.
