Mustafizur unavailable to play Tests due to bio-bubble fatigue

Bangladesh seamer Mustafizur Rahman has cited the difficulty of staying in bio-bubble environment for his unavailability

Bangladesh seamer Mustafizur Rahman has informed Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) of his unavailability to play Test cricket citing the difficulty to keep playing while remaining inside bio-bubble environment.

According to his request, the BCB had left out the pacer from their red-ball format central contract which was announced on Wednesday.

"Mustafizur is not interested to take part in Tests at the moment. He told us that it is difficult for him to concentrate on Tests, playing it under bio-bubble and so he does not want to take part in Tests at the moment,'' the board's chief of operations Akram Khan, told Cricbuzz on Thursday.

"We have taken that decision very positively and have discussed it and accepted his request because he is a very important player in the white-ball format," Khan added.

Currently, Mustafizur will be a part of the bubble for the New Zealand T20I series after which he will travel to the United Arab Emirates for the Indian Premier League 2021 which will be followed by the bio-bubble for the T20 World Cup until November.
