Injuries and personal commitments have often impacted the players’ availability in India’s biggest cricket carnival. Now, in a fresh development, it has recently come to light that star Bangladesh pacer Mustafizur Rahman is all set to miss the upcoming clash of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2024) against Sunrisers Hyderabad. It is worth noting that Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will face Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad in the 18th game of the tournament on April 5.

Rahman will be missing the clash as he has flown back to Bangladesh to process his US visa ahead of the T20 World Cup 2024, which will be held in the Caribbean and the United States in June. CSK’s next match is on April 5, and the pacer is expected to return to India between April 7-9.

“Mustafizur arrived last night from the IPL for US visa purposes for the upcoming T20 World Cup. He will be giving his fingerprint at the US Embassy tomorrow (April 4) and later will travel back to India to join Chennai,” BCB cricket operation chairman Jalal Yunus told Cricbuzz.

It is also worth noting that the willy pacer will only be available to play in the IPL until the end of April, as he is expected to be present for Bangladesh in their five-match T20I series against Zimbabwe, which starts on May 3.

Furthermore, Chennai Super Kings will look to put in an improved performance in their upcoming game against Hyderabad, especially after coming into the game after a loss in their previous clash against Delhi Capitals. Currently, the Ruturaj Gaikwad-led side sits in third place in the standings with four points in three matches, and as they travel to Hyderabad, the side will aim to register their third win of the season.
