Bangladesh’s wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim has declined to go to Pakistan for the forthcoming sequence, a staff official stated on Thursday. “Mushfiq(ur) rang me in the present day to tell that he won’t go to Pakistan. We are actually ready for his formal letter. As soon as he does that, we are going to go away him out of the sequence,” chief selector Minhajul Abedin instructed AFP. Bangladesh are scheduled to play three T20 Internationals, two Assessments and one one-day worldwide in Pakistan between January and April.


Mushfiqur’s absence could possibly be a blow for Bangladesh who’re already with out suspended all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan.

Minhajul stated they’re prone to announce the squad for the sequence in a day or two.


Bangladesh had initially refused to play the Check matches in Pakistan, after unsuccessfully requesting that one match be performed in Bangladesh, however ultimately agreed to finish the total tour in Pakistan.

Worldwide cricket has progressively returned to Pakistan within the final 4 years after it was suspended within the wake of terrorist assaults on the Sri Lankan staff bus in Lahore in March 2009.
