Bangladesh pacer Mustafizur Rahman has undergone a surgery on his shoulder performed by surgeon Andrew Wallace at Fortius Clinic in London on Thursday.
Dr Wallace had performed a shoulder operation on Sachin Tendulkar at Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth on March 27, 2006.
Earlier, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina phoned Mustafizur, before his surgery in London on Thursday, and wished a successful operation and quick recovery.
"Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina made a phone call to Mustafizur at about 5pm before the operation and enquired about his treatment and operation," PM's press secretary Ihsanul Karim told BSS.
The Premier also encouraged the pace bowling sensation and told him that she asked Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hasan Papon, who is currently in London, to look after his treatment.
Karim said the PM also requested the countrymen to pray for Mustafizur.
The press secretary also informed that Mustafizur was delighted after receiving the phone call of the Prime Minister. He also expressed his gratitude to Sheikh Hasina, a great sports lover.
The 20-year old went to Sussex on July 20 to take part in the NatWest Twenty20 Blast and Royal London One-Day Cup, and following a brilliant debut in the T20 Blast, the Bangladesh paceman complained of pain in his shoulder.
