Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has confirmed that fast bowler Mustafizur Rahman has been scheduled for a surgery on his shoulder on 11th August in London.

Rahman complained of pain in his shoulder following his game against Surrey for Sussex on 22nd July and was diagnosed with a SLAP (Superior Labrum from Anterior to Posterior) tear.

Late last month BCB confirmed that Rahman will undergo surgery, and he currently faces up to six months on the sidelines.

Rahman will be operated upon by Andrew Wallace of London’s Fortius Clinic upon the recommendation of the England and Wales Cricket Board.

BCB media committee director Jalal Yunus revealed that Rahman’s appointment was
confirmed and is confident of a positive outcome.

“The operation will take place in London on August 11,” Yunus said.

“After Mustafizur had met him (Andrew Wallace) yesterday, he gave the appointment.

“We are confident that Mustafizur is in good hands. We want this to get over as soon as possible.

After taking part in the 2016 Indian Premier League for Sunrisers Hyderabad, Rahman’s departure for Sussex was initially delayed due to injuries and later on, he managed to play only two games in July in the NatWest Twenty20 Blast.
