Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) President Nazmul Hassan on Saturday said star pacer Mustafizur Rahman will not be allowed to play in foreign T20 leagues.

“It cannot go on like this. He will pick up injuries while playing in the franchise league and won’t be available to perform the national duty. It’s just not acceptable. It cannot go on that he will be undergoing rehabilitation to recover from injuries under the care of the board, join those leagues again only to have a similar fortune,” BCB President was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.

Mustafizur Rehman got injured during the 11th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) while playing for Mumbai Indians and since then he has not represented Bangladesh in any format of the games (ODI, T20I, Test).

“I have told him that he will not be available abroad for franchise based tournaments for the next two years,” Hassan added.
