Ahead of the ICC Champions Trophy-2017, ICC has posted a report in their official website on Tuesday where they have picked eight young players from eight participating countries who can be proven dangerous in the upcoming Champions Trophy.

Mustafizur Rahman from Bangladesh is selected in the list. The countdown will start on June 1 in England with the match between Bangladesh and the home side, according to the ICC website.

The other 7 players are: Kagiso Rabada (South Africa), Mitchell Santner (New Zealand), Babar Azam (Pakistan), Kusal Mendis (Sri Lanka), Jasprit Bumrah (India) Pat Cummins (Australia) and Sam Billings (England).

While mentioning him, ICC wrote, “There is something special about this left-arm quick. He belongs to the generation to look forward to, and has already made a name for himself, Bangladesh have found a real gem in Mustafizur Rahman, quick, accurate and crafty with his off-cutters.”

It added, “The highlights of Rahman’s ODI career remain two five-wicket hauls in Bangladesh’s first ever series win over India in 2015. He is only the second player to have returned five-fours in his first two ODIs, after Zimbabwe’s Brian Vitori.”

ICC concluded, “The 21-year-old has a lot of cricket left in him. Provided he stays fit and injury-free, he has a lot of time to grow and showcase his skills. On the balance of form combined with current potential, Rahman is seemingly one who can be tipped for bigger things.”
