Mujeeb Ur Rahman of Afghanistan, who will play for the Sunrisers Hyderabad team (SRH) in the IPL 2021, has yet to arrive in the UAE due to visa issues. Mujeeb Ur Rahman will be quarantined upon his arrival in the United Arab Emirates before joining the rest of the squad. With the second phase of the IPL 2021 set to begin on September 19 and SRH’s first game on September 22, the 20-year-old is likely to miss the tournament’s first few games.
A source close to the team told ANI that the arrival date of Mujeeb Ur Rahman is uncertain, but that they are working on it. Mujeeb Ur Rahman’s Afghanistan teammates Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi have already arrived in the UAE and are undergoing their mandatory seven-day quarantine, according to him.
“It is still being worked on, and there is no clear date as to when Mujeeb can join his franchise. His entry visa is still being worked on and there should be an update soon.”
Mujeeb Ur Rahman’s teammates Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi have already arrived in the UAE and are undergoing their mandatory seven-day quarantine, according to him.
These two players will be available for selection against the Delhi Capitals (DC) in SRH’s first game in the UAE. On the other hand, foreign players currently competing in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and the South Africa-Sri Lanka series will be subjected to a two-day quarantine upon arrival in the UAE. Before they join their respective teams’ bio-bubbles, they will all be tested.
“The players coming in from the bubbles in CPL and from the SA-SL series will undergo two days of isolation. They will come in and go into their rooms on the first day, they will then get tested the next day, and once the results come in, they will join the squad members in the bubble,” the source told ANI.
Mujeeb Ur Rahman only appeared in one game during the first half of the IPL 2021, picking up two wickets. With only one win in seven gаmes, SRH is аt the bottom of the points tаble.
