Two matches, four wickets, one man of the match award and another injury - this was Mustafizur Rahman's debut stint in England in a nutshell. The left-arm seamer has sustained an injury to his shoulder and has been ruled out from the remainder of Sussex's group matches in Royal London One-Day Cup and NatWest T20 Blast.
Mustafizur has a tear in his left shoulder. He underwent an MRI after his second game for Sussex, against Surrey. The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) have asked him to do do further tests. However, BCB have not called Mustafizur back to Dhaka. It will depend on the results of the tests that he will undergo.
BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury has confirmed that the Board is waiting for further medical assessment and then only they can take a call.
"He has to undergo another assessment today, after which we will be able to know whether he will stay back in the UK for further medical attention or if he will return to Bangladesh," Chowdhury was quoted as saying by ESPNCricinfo.
Sussex also stated in a media release that Mustafizur has sustained a shoulder injury and he will not be able to feature in the upcoming games for them, even if there is a possibility of the left-armer featuring in the knockout stages.
"The 20-year-old is suffering from a shoulder injury, and, under the direction of the Bangladesh Cricket Board, is due to have a scan this week to ascertain whether or not he will be fit enough to play in any knockout matches should Sussex qualify for the latter stages of either competition" Sussex said in a statement.
Mustafizur still would have played at least five more matches for the English county side. But unfortunately, he needs medical attention now.
In case one has not witnessed how Mustafizur rattled his opponents in his debut match for Sussex a few days ago, here are the highlights of his match-winning spell against Essex:
