Dhaka  – Bangladesh’s bowling sensation Mustafizur Rahman is likely to leave Dhaka on July 13 to join Sussex for his first English county stint.He is expected to be available for four matches in the NatWest T20 Blast and the Royal London One-Day Cup.  Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) media committee chairman Jalal Yunus on Friday said Mustafizur’s medical report was positive and he was expecting the UK visa imminently.“Our medical team gave positive report about his physical condition,” Yunus told reporters. “He is doing fine in training at the moment and we expect him to improve. He will leave for England on July 13 subject to the availability of visa.”Meanwhile, Mustafizur is recovering from multiple injuries to his right leg, which he sustained during the Indian Premier League (IPL).Mustafizur’s first match is likely to be Sussex’s home T20 game against Hampshire on July 15. He will be with his new team till at least August 2 when the league stage of the one-day competition ends, and will also be around if they make it to the knockout stages of both the tournaments.“I feel better than I was after I came to Dhaka from the IPL. I can bowl now, which I wasn’t able previously,” Mustafizur said. “It would be good to go to Sussex. I’ll try to give my best there.”His arrival will end Sussex’s frustration about his delay, forwhich
they have had to hire David Weise and lately Nuwan Kulasekara to replace him as their overseas player.(UNB)
