Akram wants Mustafiz to continue IPL instead of Zimbabwe series


Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) director Akram Khan wants pacer Mustafizur Rahman to continue Indian Premier League (IPL) instead of playing the upcoming five-match T20 series against Zimbabwe.

Mustafiz is playing for Chennai Super Kings and so far took 10 wickets in five matches which put him in the second spot of the wicket-taker list in the world's most influential T20 tournament.
But the BCB provided him the NOC until May 1 as Bangladesh will play a T20 series against Zimbabwe at home, starting from May 3.

Akram Khan thinks that the IPL will hone Mustafiz's skill more which eventually will benefit Bangladesh in the T20 World Cup.

"I think he will learn a lot from there in IPL because he is playing in a team like CSK, which was boasted with big names. There is player like Mahendra Singh Dhoni and there are a lot of big players. It's a life time experience to share the dressing room with the players like their caliber," Akram said.

"The standard of IPL is top class. He has the opportunity to play in different kind of wickets and against different players, which eventually will enhance his skill," he added.
