Why Mushfiqur Rahim is not playing for Bangladesh in T20 World Cup 2022 ?
Mushfiqur Rahim is not playing for Bangladesh in T20 World cup 2022 because he has already taken retirement from T20 internationals. He announced his decision two days after Bangladesh was crashed out of Asia Cup 2022. He will continue to play in ODI, Test and league matches. The Tigers are going to miss the experience of their middle-order batsman Mushfiqur Rahim in the upcoming T20 WC.
I would like to announce my retirement from T20 INTERNATIONALS and focus on Test and ODI formats of the game. I will be available to play franchise leagues when the opportunity arrives. Looking forward to proudly represent my nation in the two formats-MR15

Mushfiqur was unable to score runs in the shortest format. He was able to score runs in double digit only three times in the last 10 T20Is. He had a terrible Asia Cup where he managed to score only five runs in two matches. He registered the scores of 1 and 4 in the two matches the team played and lost.
However, Rahim was a veteran of the game as he represented Bangladesh in the 102 T20Is. In those matches, he has scored 1500 runs at the strike Rate of 115.03. He also has six half-centuries to his name.
