Struggling Bangladesh can heave a huge sigh of relief as the team's most dependable batsman Mushfiqur Rahim is all set to return to the fold in the side's third and final Test against New Zealand, starting on March 16 in Christchurch.
"I think he will be available for the third and final Test," team manager Khaled Masud Pilot said yesterday as the Bangladesh reached Christchurch to play the third Test. "He batted in the nets confidently against throw downs and did not look like he was struggling like the way he did when he began it earlier," he added, according to agency.
Mushfiqur indeed has multiple injuries that ruled him out in the first two Test matches. His absence in the middle order created such big loopholes that Bangladesh tasted middle order collapse in all four innings of the last two Tests.
Bangladesh had already conceded the series, losing the first Test by an innings and 52 runs margin and the second in an innings and 12 runs margin. Mushfiqur is all set to comeback to the team.
