Bangladesh fast-bowler Mustafizur Rahman is currently recovering from a hairline fracture on his left toe, which had previously ruled him out of the T20I series against Afghanistan last week. His absence in the pace unit saw the team suffer and eventually get whitewashed against the Afghans.

Mustafiz is doubtful for the Tigers’ upcoming series against West Indies. Although the 22-year-old will not miss the entire series, he is likely to miss the first Test against the Caribbean side.

“There will be injuries if you play and if it was in my destiny, then what can I do? Obviously I regret it, but it's the fact for every cricketer. What can I do? I always try to remain fit but there is nothing to do if you suffer an injury,” Mustafizur told reporters.

Mustafiz injured his toe while trying to stop a ball during an IPL encounter for the Mumbai Indians last month. He was expected to be sidelined for three weeks and is currently undergoing rehabilitation.

The left-hander is likely to return to action next week and Bangladesh’s medical team has advised keeping the pacer out of the team ahead of their first Test against West Indies.

“I am feeling much better as already three weeks went by and I am in my rehabilitation and trying to work accordingly and overall I am feeling very good. I have been given some programs for the Eid break and after that they will check me again. As I am injured so my main aim will be to be to return back to the team and I am working accordingly,” he said.

Bangladesh will fly out to the Caribbean on June 23. The first Test of the two-match series will commence from July 4. The Test series will be followed by two limited-overs series where the Tigers will take on the Windies team in three ODIs and as many T20Is.
