Mushfiqur Rahim took to social media to pray for Razzak’s fast recovery.

Razzak played 153 ODIs and 34 T20Is for Bangladesh. He was the first Bangladeshi bowler to claim 200 scalps in the 50-over format. Razzak also holds the record of scoring the fastest half-century for Bangladesh - which came off just 22 balls - during an ODI against Zimbabwe.

He became the first Bangladeshi to appear in the Indian Premier League (IPL) when he was bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore in the inaugural edition of the cash-rich league.
