Mustafizur Rahman, Bangladesh's left-arm bowler, is doubtful for Monday's third and final T20I against Pakistan.

Mustafizur Rahman is suffering from side soreness, according to the Bangladesh Cricket Board medical team.

The pain was one of the factors that caused the Bangladesh bowler to leave the field after the first ball of his second over against Pakistan at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Saturday.

“Mustafizur felt sudden pain in his side during his second over of bowling. He will be reassessed again [Sunday] and a decision will be made on whether he will be match-fit for the final T20 international of the series,” said a BCB media release following the game Saturday.

Another reason Mustafizur had to leave the field was because of a probable breach of the series' bio-secured bubble protocol.

The game was interrupted in the 13th over of Pakistan's innings after a fan from the Northern Stand sprinted to the center of the field, avoiding security and a group of groundsmen at SBNCS.

Before being removed off the field by BCB security, the man had touched Mustafizur's boot, prompting match officials to remove the Bangladesh bowler from the game.
