Bangladesh wicket-keeper batsman Mushfiqur Rahim is set to play two one-day matches for A team against BCB High Performance unit.

Middle-order batsman Mushfiq couldn’t live to his reputation in the just concluded five-match T20I series against visitors New Zealand. The right-handed batsman in five games scored just 39 runs involving two ducks. His highest score- 20 not out- was scored off as many as 37 balls, one of the slowest innings in T20I history during the losing cause in the third match of the series.

It is understood that Mushfiq will play the matches for A team with an aim to score some runs before travelling to Oman early next month for the ICC T20 World Cup.

Mushfiq had returned to the Bangladesh T20I fold through New Zealand series having missed out the three-match T20I series in Zimbabwe due to personal reasons and then the five-match T20I series in Dhaka against Australia due to Covid-19 protocol.

“A team will play in Chattgoram [against BCB HP]. Mushfiq has shown interest to play there and we have told him he can join. I think he feels he requires some game time to gain confidence. We [BCB] support his decision,” said BCB cricket operations chairman Akram Khan to the media on Sunday.

The A team and the BCB High Performance Unit are set to play five one-day matches in Chattogram. The first two matches of the series will be played on September 30 and October 2. Mushfiq has showed interest to play the first two matches of the series.

Bangladesh are set to travel to Oman early October and set a conditioning camp. The T20 World Cup is set to take place in UAE and Oman from October 17 to November 15 where Bangladesh will first have to play the qualifiers to qualify for the main event.

Bangladesh in the first phase of the competition have been slotted in Group B and will contest with Oman, Papua New Guinea and Scotland. In Group A, Ireland, Netherlands, Namibia and Sri Lanka will contest for two qualification spot. The groups were selected on the basis of team rankings as of 20 March 2021.
