Left-arm fast medium Bowler

Mustafizur Rahman, the left-arm sensation hailing from a very small town called Satkhira, was born on September 6, 1995. He came to Dhaka to live his dream of becoming a fast bowler. Bursting onto the scene during BCB’s pace foundation, he was scouted for the 2014 Under-19 World Cup in UAE. His evident talent quickly garnered attention, propelling him into a regular role within Bangladesh's Under-19 squad. Representing Bangladesh in the Under-19 World Cup in 2014, he showcased his skills by claiming 9 wickets in six matches. Rahman started both his first-class and List-A career in 2014 and then got fast-tracked to tour West Indies with Bangladesh-A. Gradually, the he earned his pace and embraced diverse variations into his bowling, especially the slower off-cutters, resulting in his first national team selection in a T20I series against Pakistan in 2015. Rahman's breakthrough came during India's tour, marking the start of his ODI career with a memorable six-wicket haul. He followed this outstanding performance with another five-wicket haul in his second ODI, thereby becoming only the second bowler in ODI history to achieve two five-wicket hauls in their first two matches. In July 2015, following his success in limited-overs cricket, the southpaw received his maiden Test cap, marking his debut against South Africa. Remarkably, he made an immediate impact, earning the prestigious Man of the Match award for his outstanding performance. His remarkable performances caught the attention of Sunrisers Hyderabad, earning him an INDIAN T20 LEAGUE contract for the 2016 season. By the end of the tournament, his exceptional skills further solidified his reputation as a rising star after winning the "Emerging Player Award”. In the 2018 season, Mustafizur Rahman joined the Mumbai Indians franchise. However, the season proved to be challenging for the Bangladeshi cricketer, as he faced difficulties in meeting expectations. But he emerged as a more improved bowler in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 and ended up as the fourth-highest wicket-taker in the tournament with 20 wickets. Noting this, Rajasthan Royals opted for him in 2021. He displayed consistent performance here as well, and in 2022, eventually, he got to serve the Delhi Capitals for the next two seasons at a price tag of INR 2 crores. Simultaneously, Mustafizur Rahman continued to excel in both domestic and international cricket circuits. He has amassed more than 100 wickets each in both T20Is and ODIs so far. Cut to the 2023 auctions of the INDIAN T20 LEAGUE, the five-time champions Chennai team decided to go with him at the base price of INR 2 crores. It’s a fantastic opportunity for this Bangladeshi sensation to cement his place as a dependable bowler and with the experience of playing across the globe, he surely can add value with his performance. Also, he is consistently been a part of the Bangladesh Premier League for a long time now and currently plays for the Comilla Victorians. "The Fizz," as many affectionately call him, has indeed experienced numerous highs and lows throughout his cricketing journey so far.
