Hot prospect Mustafizur Rahman could soon line up for a Big Bash franchise

Bangladesh's Mustafizur Rahman could ignite a bidding war between several KFC Big Bash League clubs as the T20 magician's stock continues to soar.

Mustafizur is one of the hottest T20 bowlers in the world right now, dominating the IPL at the Sunrisers Hyderabad with lively left-arm pace, some deceptive slower balls and a hostile yorker.

 Seven BBL clubs have at least one overseas vacancy for BBL season 6. 

The Melbourne Renegades may have got an early jump on their rivals in the race for Mustafizur,as the Bangladeshi's IPL coach Tom Moody is a director at the Renegades, who currently have two overseas spots available on their list.

Moody's close connection with Mustafizur could be a deal-breaker for the Renegades should they want to sign the 20-year-old.

Their Coach David Saker recently expressed a desire to boost his side's bowling stocks after a disappointing campaign last summer. Saker told - 



To be fair, we probably need an overseas bowler.We're looking at whether to go down that track or to recruit a bowler from inside Australia.


Mustafizur could also be swayed to the SCG with the Sydney Sixers having room for two international signings. While, he could be an option for Sydney Thunder to replace the legendary all-rounder Jacques Kallis.

Perth Scorchers also have both of their overseas spots vacant, while Hobart, Adelaide and Brisbane can sign one more international each.

If Mustafizur does find a home in the BBL next summer he would be the second Bangladeshi to play in Australia after Shakib Al Hasan.

Relatively unknown two months ago, Mustafizur burst onto the radar after a stunning display in the IPL and the preceding World T20.
