Sussex Cricket are delighted to announce their second overseas signing of the summer with the news that Bangladesh’s left-arm seamer Mustafizur Rahman will be arriving at Hove for the 2016 NatWest T20 Blast competition.
20 year-old starlet Mustafizur will become the first ever Bangladeshi international to play for Sussex, and the left-armer has burst on to the international scene over the past few seasons, first catching the attention of the Bangladesh selectors as he starred at the Under-19 World Cup in 2014.

Mustafizur said of his move to Sussex, “I am very excited to get an opportunity in county cricket. It has always been an ambition of mine to play in England and I am thankful to Sussex for this opportunity. I hope I can repay the faith they have shown in me with my performances on the field.”

Sussex’s Head Coach Mark Davis said, “I am really excited to have Mustafizur join us at Sussex Cricket. He is a cricketer with incredible ability and is currently one of the bright young talents of world cricket.
“His unorthodox bowling variations make him a very difficult customer to bat against, and he will be a brilliant addition to our team.”
