Mustafizur’s wait to join his Delhi family almost over
Mustafizur Rahman has "safely landed" in India on Saturday after the Bangladesh "cutter master" rented a private jet to be with his Indian Premier League (IPL) side Delhi Capitals a day after being with the national side.
However, Mustafizur will miss Delhi's campaign opener against Lucknow Super Giants today.
"Alhamdulillah, Safely landed in India. #YehHaiNayiDilli #IPL2023," wrote Mustafizur on his Facebook page.
In a previous post, he wrote: "Heading to India for IPL 2023. Can't wait to join my Delhi Capitals family."
Since the left-arm pacer is not under a central red-ball contract -- unlike Shakib Al Hasan and Liton Das who were roped in by Kolkata Knight Riders -- so he was allowed to leave ahead of the upcoming Test against Ireland, starting from April 4 in Mirpur.
Mustafizur has taken 46 wickets in 46 matches in his IPL career, having played for Sunrisers Hyderabad, Mumbai Indians before Delhi Capitals acquired his service.
