Bangladesh pace bowler Mustafizur Rahman has been forced out of action with Sussex due to a shoulder injury.

After a series of delays due to an unrelated injury and visa problems, Mustafizur made two appearances for Sussex, against Essex and Surrey in the NatWest T20 Blast.

He took four for 23 against Essex but went wicketless against Surrey, before suffering the shoulder injury which means he will play no further part in the group stages of either the Blast or the Royal London One-Day Cup.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board have directed that he have further scans to see whether he will be fit enough to play in the knockout stages of the one-day competitions should Sussex qualify.

"Mustafizur himself has nothing but praise for Head Coach Mark Davis, Captain Luke Wright and his team mates, and it is hoped that there is a possibility of him returning to Hove in the future," a statement from Sussex read.

"Sussex Cricket would like to wish Mustafizur all the best for the future and we wish him a speedy recovery from his injury," it added.
