The wicketkeeper-batter is flying back to Dhaka for “family reasons”
“The Bangladesh Cricket Board requests that all respect the privacy of Mushfiqur and his family at this time,” a BCB release said.
Rahim played the one-off Test in Harare last week but, having injured his hand while batting, stayed off the field for most of the game. He was also initially supposed to skip the T20I series after the board granted him leave.
The BCB and CA have agreed that everyone involved in the series must be in quarantine for ten days prior to entering the tour’s bio-bubble in Dhaka. As such, the selectors wanted Rahim and another player to be part of the bio-bubble in Harare, which is being considered as part of the ten-day quarantine.
