Fizz sits out with shoulder niggle

Those who were looking forward to following the ever-popular Bangladesh pace sensation Mustafizur Rahman's exploits in his stint with Sussex were left disappointed as the left-hander missed out on yesterday's Royal London One-Day Cup match against Gloucestershire in Cheltenham.

Sussex let their fans know of the unfortunate news, that a flare-up of an old shoulder injury was keeping the Fizz out, through a tweet minutes before the match started.

It was learned that Mustafizur was in the 13-man squad for the game and had travelled to the ground to practise with the rest of the team, but persistent pain on his shoulder forced Sussex to take the precautionary move.

According to Bangladesh Cricket Board officials, Mustafizur is likely to undergo a scan today.

Earlier, Mustafizur made his much-anticipated debut for Sussex in the Natwest T20 Blast match against Essex Eagles on July 21. He put in a man-of-the-match performance on debut, picking up four for 23 in an emphatic win for his team. Fortunes were reversed, however, the very next day when Surrey beat Sussex with Mustafizur giving away 32 runs from 3.2 overs.

He is set to make his way back to Dhaka on August 2.
