Sussex have snapped up Bangladeshi seamer wonder boy Mustafizur Rahman as their second overseas signing for the NatWest T20 Blast. 20 year-old starlet Mustafizur will become the first ever Bangladeshi international to play for Sussex, and the left-armer has burst on to the international scene over the past few seasons, first catching the attention of the Bangladesh selectors as he starred at the Under-19 World Cup in 2014.

Mustafizur Rahman has expressed his gratitude for the selection and said “I am very excited to get an opportunity in county cricket. It has always been an ambition of mine to play in England and I am thankful to Sussex for this opportunity. I hope I can repay the faith they have shown in me with my performances on the field.”
Sussex’s Head Coach Mark Davis and other coaching are also excited of the signing. Mark is eager to work with him and have a closer look at him.
