Bangladesh Pacer Mustafizur Rahman Sizzles on T20 Blast Debut

London: Bangladesh pacer Mustafizur Rahman announced his English county debut in style, helping Sussex Sharks earn a 24-run win over Essex Eagles in a NatWest T20 Blast game here.

The wily 20-year-old seamer grabbed four wickets giving away 23 runs from four overs at Chelmsford, reported bdnews24.com on Friday.

Asked to bat first, Sussex batsmen rallied to post an imposing 200/6 at the country ground on Thursday.

After skipper Luke Wright (32 off 24 balls) and Philip Salt (33 off 19 balls) laid a strong foundation, some late fireworks from all-rounder Chris Jordan (21-ball 45) lifted Sussex to the total.

In reply, Essex managed 176/8 as Mustafizur made the difference with his bag of tricks and was adjudged Man of the Match.
