Bangladesh veteran wicket keeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim denied the speculations about his of not being available for the forthcoming Zimbabwe series.

Rahim recently pulled himself out of the Pakistan tour siting security reasons. Buzzes raised from around as he also missed the first round of the Bangladesh Cricket League on account of a hamstring injury.

On Monday Mushfiqur strongly opposed the situation around him saying there is absolutely no reason of not playing against Zimbabwe.

“I have a fitness test tomorrow or the day after and if everything is okay, I will play in the second round of BCL.

There is no reason why I won’t play against Zimbabwe. I am preparing myself accordingly. I will be fit and will be available for selection,”

Mushfiqur cleared the air.

Chief Selector Minhajul Abedin Nannu in an occasion also hinted Bangladesh will retain the combination against Zimbabwe as well.

Mushfiqur, therefore, said being selected or not is not his hand but he will try his best to regain his place.

Whether I will be selected or not is not in my hands but I will try to play against Zimbabwe and not only the Test but we have a full-fledged series against Zimbabwe and I will try to be available for all the formats. I will try to do well if I get selected,” he noted.

Mushfiqur also gushed out saying he is not a big star like Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim. It is just his plans to be in the series to come.

“I am not a big cricketer like Tamim and Shakib and I always think of myself as a small player. Like I always say, I only plan about how to get a chance to play in the next series.

“So it was not embarrassing for me; rather it looked normal as they are saying what they are thinking. There is a match of BCL and I will try to perform so that I make the selectors and members of the team management happy. If they think that I can add value to the team than they will pick me in the upcoming series,” he added.
