Nobody likes to face him – our batsmen don't like to face him – so I'm sure the opposition don't want to face him either,” Simmons said.
If CSK wants to bring a local player in place of Mustafizur, then fit Mukesh Chaudhary may get a chance. However, the left-arm pacer from Maharashtra has not played any competitive game since December 2022 due to multiple illnesses. He suffered a rib fracture and lower back injury at the end of the IPL 2022 season.
