Mushfiqur Rahim Withdraws from Bangladesh Squad for Super Four Match
In a surprising turn of events, Mushfiqur Rahim will be absent from the Bangladesh squad for their crucial Super Four match against India in the Asia Cup. The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) granted him an extended rest period to be with his wife and newborn child.
Following Bangladesh’s match against Sri Lanka, Rahim had initially planned to rejoin the team before the India encounter. However, the cricketer prioritized his presence and support for his wife, who is currently undergoing post-natal treatment, resulting in the BCB authorities granting him permission.
This unfortunate development further diminishes Bangladesh’s chances of reaching the final of the Asia Cup, as India secured their place in the final after defeating Sri Lanka.
The winner of the upcoming match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka will now face India in the highly anticipated final, scheduled to take place on Sunday.
Colombo: Mushfiqur Rahim will not play for Bangladesh in the Super Four match against India in the Asia Cup. This is after the Bangladesh Cricket Board extended the rest of Mushfiqur, who returned home to share the joy of the birth of his second child.
The player returned home after the match against Sri Lanka on the last nine. It was hoped that he would be back before the game against India. However, after Mushfiqur informed that his presence with his wife, who is undergoing post-natal treatment, was necessary, the Bangladesh Cricket Board authorities gave permission.
Bangladesh’s slim hope of playing in the final of the Asia Cup was dashed yesterday when India defeated Sri Lanka. The winners of today’s match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka will face India in the final on Sunday.
