Fizz to go under the knife in London
The Bangladesh Cricket Board have announced that fast bowler, Mustafizur Rahman, will undergo surgery on his injured shoulder in London on August 11.
The surgery will be performed by Dr Andrew Wallace of London's Fortius Clinic, following a recommendation by the England Cricket Board to the BCB.
Mustafizur is expected to take roughly six months to recover from the surgery, which would mean the quick should be back in time to feature in the ICC Champions Trophy in June 2017.
BCB media committee director Jalal Yunus said:"The operation will take place in London on August 11,
"After Mustafizur had met him yesterday, he gave the appointment. We are confident that Mustafizur is in good hands. We want this to get over as soon as possible."
The paceman complained of pain after the second game of a county stint with Sussex, and underwent scans which revealed a superior labrum from anterior to posterior tear.
The quick has remained in England for the surgery rather than return home to Bangladesh.
