Mostafiz is currently in India with his team Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Mostafiz has been in high demand in various franchise leagues since the beginning of his career. So far, the Bangladesh Cricket Board has not said anything to Mostafiz, but this time the board has moved.
This is the first step taken by the BCB to return the left-arm pacer to the Test squad.
Since making his Test debut in 2015, Bangladesh has played 39 Tests, of which only 14 have been played.
“We have sent a letter to Mostafiz (to find out about his test plans) and now we are waiting for his reply,” the country’s daily newspaper quoted a top BCB official as saying on Friday.
