Bangladesh fast bowler Mustafizur Rahman has successfully undergone a shoulder surgery performed by Andrew Wallace on Thursday in London.

According to a release by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), the surgery took about an hour to complete and the board’s senior physician Debashish Chowdhury was present with Rahman.

Chowdhury confirmed that Rahman will most likely be discharged on Friday and over the next few days, a rehabilitation plan will be chalked out.

“The procedure began around 16h00 local time (22h00 BST) and took about an hour to finish.

“The type two SLAP tear of his left shoulder has been repaired.

“Mustafiz could be released from hospital tomorrow (Friday) and we will get a clearer idea about the follow-up and rehab over the next couple of days.”

Rahman complained of a shoulder pain after taking part in his second game for Sussex in the 2016 NatWest Twenty20 Blast and was later diagnosed with a SLAP tear in his left shoulder.

In this year, Rahman has suffered a spate of injuries and missed a greater part of the 2016 World T20 and the 2016 Asia Cup tournaments for the national team.

However, Rahman played a majority of the matches in the 2016 Indian Premier League and was a crucial part of Sunrisers Hyderabad side as they won their maiden title.
