mustafiz will not play sussex for injury

Sussex have announced that Bangladeshi left-armer Mustafizur Rahman will unfortunately play no part in the Sharks’ upcoming NatWest T20 Blast and Royal London One-Day Cup group matches.

The 20 year-old is suffering from a shoulder injury and, under the direction of the Bangladesh Cricket Board, is due to have a scan this week to ascertain whether or not he will be fit enough to play in any knockout matches should Sussex qualify for the latter stages of either competition.

He has played two NatWest T20 Blast matches so far, against Essex Eagles and Surrey last week, but the injury kept him out of Sunday’s visit to Cheltenham to face Gloucestershire in the Royal London One-Day Cup.
