Bangladesh paceman hurt his left big toe during IPL

Gulf News

Dhaka: Bangladesh have left out Mustafizur Rahman from their 15-man squad for next month’s Test series against West Indies after the pacer failed to recover from an injury.

The 22-year-old left-arm seamer, who has claimed 26 wickets in 10 Tests, hurt his left big toe last month during an Indian Premier League match he played for the Mumbai Indians.

Mustafizur was yet to regain his fitness from the injury which also forced him to miss the recent three-match Twenty20 series against Afghanistan, chief selector Minhajul Abedin said. The first Test will be played in Antigua from July 4 while the second and final Test will be held in Kingston, Jamaica from July 12.
