Bangladesh head coach Russell Domingo said on Sunday that though they will miss Mushfiqur Rahim, who opted out of the upcoming tour of Pakistan due to family reason, they respect his decision. 

The Mushfiqur Rahim-size gap is tough to be plugged in a middle order of the national team which also lacked Shakib Al Hasan, said Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hassan Papon.


While Shakib has been serving two-year ban, one year of suspended imposed by the ICC due to his failure to report corrupt approaches, Mushfiqur Rahim pulled him out from the Pakistan tour, citing family reason.

 

Those two absences left Bangladesh middle order vulnerable indeed. But the absence of Mushfiqur Rahim is huge, considering his recent form.


Mushfiqur led Bangladesh’s maiden T20 win over India in last November before amassing 491 runs from 14 matches of the Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League (BBPL), which was just four runs short of highest run-getter Rilee Rossouw.  He also scored his T20 highest 98 in this tournament.

“I have spoken to him[ Mushfiqur. It is his decision not to go. You have to respect his decision. He is a family man like me. He will be greatly missed. He is one of our best players. He had a great BPL campaign,’’ he said.

‘’He did well against India for us, but it is an opportunity for someone else. The game goes on. One day Mushfiq will be gone, so someone has to step in and perform at his level,’’ he added.
