Mustafizur yet to get visa, still could fly for England on Wednesday

It was learnt on Monday that the Bangladesh pace sensation Mustafizur Rahman, who had visited the British High Commission earlier, would receive visa for travelling to England on Tuesday.

But after almost 24 hours, the situation has remained unchanged, as Mustafizur couldn’t acquire the visa even on Tuesday. As a result, the possibility of Mustafizur heading to England on Wednesday (July 13) has become uncertain once again.

 According to a reliable source in the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), there is still high possibility of Mustafizur receiving the visa before Wednesday evening. And even if that doesn’t happen, he will get it on Thursday for sure.

On the other hand, BCB’s logistic manager Sajib has informed that everything is ready, and should he receive the visa by the evening on Wednesday, he could catch the flight for England in the same night.

It can be noted that the Fizz will play in both NatWest T20 Blast and the Royal London ODI cup in English county cricket for Sussex. He is going to be the third Bangladeshi cricketer after Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal to play in English county cricket.
