IND vs BAN: In an unexpected turn of events leading up to the Asia Cup 2023’s Super 4 round clash between India and Bangladesh scheduled for 15th September, the Bangladesh squad faces a significant setback. The team’s stalwart and experienced opener, Mushfiqur Rahim, made an unanticipated departure midway through the competition.

Although the Bangladesh team’s journey to the finals has reached a cul-de-sac, the Friday match holds significant value for the Indian contingent. This contest, sans Rahim, might alter the balance and dynamics on the field.

IND vs BAN: Rumors and speculations surrounding Rahim’s sudden exit were put to rest by media reports indicating the joyous reason for his departure: the imminent arrival of a new family member. Embracing an impending phase of fatherhood, Rahim chose family over field, deciding to be present in Bangladesh during this crucial family milestone. Consequently, he’ll be absent from the anticipated India-Bangladesh face-off.

Shining a light on Mushfiqur Rahim’s illustrious career, the numbers speak volumes of his prowess. Rahim has graced the test arena 86 times, accumulating a whopping 5553 runs over 159 innings, averaging 38.29. His One Day International (ODI) track record is equally commendable, with 7359 runs from 255 matches at an average of 37.16. Not to be overlooked is his contribution in the T20 International format, where he’s notched up 1500 runs in 102 matches.

The answer hinges on the outcome of the Pakistan vs. Sri Lanka game slated for September 14th.
