National pacer Mustafizur Rahman had his first net bowling session on Thursday ever since he returned home with an injury from the IPL 2016. The left-arm pacer before attending the session with the ball had undergone a rehab programme, which included running and gym sessions.
Mustafizur, who had a brilliant stint in the IPL for the Sunrisers Hyderabad, had picked up a hamstring and ankle injury. His two-week rehab programme began on June 9.
In March, Sussex had announced that Mustafizur would be their second overseas player and participate in the NatWest T20 Blast and the Royal London One-Day Cup. The Bangladesh bowler was set to join Sussex at the end of the IPL but injuries and fatigue denied him from appearing in the UK.
