He will forego Bangladesh’s Twenty20 series versus New Zealand the following month, but official selector Minhajul Abedin claimed the 32-year-old will be available for the World Cup, where they must end up in the top 2 spots in Group B to advance to the Super 12 level.
“I don’t see any doubt,” Abedin told in an Interaction. “He will play when he is fit and he will be with the team. We are keeping a close eye on his development.”
