Bangladeshi pace bowler Mustafizur Rahman has made remarkable footprint in the VIVO IPL 2018. Earlier, he played IPL 2016 and 2017 with great success for the Sunrisers Hyderabad.

But this time he is playing for the Mumbai Indians. Today the Mumbai Indians authority has uploaded a video on Mustafizur. Where he speaks about the new team and his learning from different coaches and teammates.

Mustafizur is a left-arm pace bowler who came to Dhaka in 2012 to try his luck at a fast-bowler’s camp, after he had impressed in an Under-17 tournament in his hometown Satkhira. He was admitted to the Bangladesh Cricket Board's pace foundation and soon caught the coaches' attention to make the Bangladesh Under-19 side for the 2014 World Cup.

He initially lacked pace, but built it up through the 2014-15 first-class season, when he took 26 wickets. An international call up came soon and Mustafizur impressed straightaway making some of the best in the business look tentative against him.

He enjoyed great success against India in the Asia Cup in 2016 and caught the eye worldwide for his ability to generate good pace and for his deceptive slower one.

The VIVO IPL 2016 was his first stint with the IPL and he was known for his lethal yorker to KKR all-rounder Andre Russell.

He was impressive for SRH last year and would be looking to do well in the 2017 edition as well.
