Bangladesh wicket-keeper batter Mushfiqur Rahim suffered a knee injury during his workout session on Saturday at Sher e Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur.

The development was confirmed by a source from Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to Cricfrenzy.

“Mushfiqur injured his left knee while practicing in the gym. After being taken to the hospital, stitches had to be applied. The doctor advised him to rest for at least two weeks," 

Mushfiq announced his retirement from T20 internationals, the cricketer will continue in formats like ODI, Test and franchise leagues.

His retirement came after Bangladesh failed to qualify for the Super Four stage of the ongoing Asia Cup in the UAE.

Bangladesh lost both their Group B matches in the Asia Cup against Afghanistan and Sri Lanka, in which Mushfiq contributed only five runs.
