IPL 2021: Before the start of the 14th season of the Indian Premier League, the Rajasthan Royals team may get a setback. Bangladesh fast bowler Mustafizur is ready to withdraw his name from IPL. Mustafizur Rahman has said to play for Bangladesh National Team instead of IPL as his priority. Mustafizur has said that he will be available for selection in the Test series against Sri Lanka in April.
Mustafizur was bought by Rajasthan Royals at the players’ auction for IPL 2021 in Chennai for their base price of Rs 1 crore. Bangladesh Cricket Board has approved many of its players, including Mustafizur and all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, to participate in the IPL. Shakib is bought by Kolkata Knight Riders.
Left-arm fast bowler Mustafir says that he does not want to skip the Test series against Sri Lanka for the IPL. Shakib Al Hasan, however, has preferred the IPL rather than playing for the national team.
Will give priority to national team
Mustafizur said, “I will do what the BCB tells me to do. If they keep me in the Test team for Sri Lanka tour, then I will play a Test match. If the BCB does not include me in the Test team then they know that What should I do.”
Mustafizur says that if he is selected in the Test team, then of course he will choose to play for his country instead of IPL.
