Mushfiqur Rahim turns down visit to Pakistan

“Mushfiq(ur) rang me today to notify he won’t visit Pakistan. We’re now awaiting his formal correspondence. After he does this, we’ll leave him from this show,” Chief Selector Minhajul Abedin told AFP.

Bangladesh are scheduled to perform three Twenty20 internationals, two Tests and a single one-day global in Pakistan between January and April.

Mushfiqur’s absence may be a setback for Bangladesh that are currently without frozen all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan.

Minhajul stated they’re most likely to announce the squad for the show every day or 2.

Global cricket has returned to Pakistan from the previous four decades later it had been suspended in the aftermath of terrorist attacks on the Sri Lankan team bus at Lahore in March 2009.
