Bangladesh's strength and conditioning coach Mario Villavarayan has said that Mushfiqur Rahim, who had suffered from a hamstring injury during the first ODI at Christchurch, is recovering well and might even bat at the nets when the Tigers reach Napier today.
“Mushfiqur is doing well. He has been jogging and stretching and has looked good. If things go well, he might even go through a batting session when we reach Napier. Even if he doesn't bat tomorrow, he may bat day after,” Villavarayan told The Daily Star on Saturday.
Mushfiqur is likely to miss the three-match T20I series against New Zealand, which is set to take place from January 3 to January 8.
However, the team management is confident that he can be fit in time for the first Test which begins on January 12. The Bangladesh Test skipper has a little less than two weeks to recover.
