Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club ended up in the fourth position last season. Leaving behind the past failures, captain Mushfiq is desperate to win the title for his team in this season.
Last season Mushfiqur Rahim struck 4 centuries as well as six half-centuries. The maximum runs of 951 in the tournament came from the bat of the national team’s captain.
At an introductory meeting held for the players of Thursday, Mushfiq said, “Despite the last season being a good one for me, the team’s average performance was not satisfactory. This time our goal is winning the cup.”
“We have all the weapons needed to be a good team. We have very good local cricketers. Now a few people are effectively trying to bring in foreign players. I think if we play our best cricket, it will be difficult for any team to defeat us.”
Sheikh Jamal’s Cricket Committee’s Chairman Mushfiqur Rahman Mohon said that Elton Chigumbura and Charles Coventry of Zimbabwe and Dilshan Munaweera from Sri Lanka will play for them in the whole season. He also informed that Kumar Sangakarra will be available for two matches.
BPL’s experience has caused many to be concerned about the payment of the players in the Premier League. However, Mushfiq believes that there are no uncertainties or worries about this matter with the players of Sheikh Jamal.
In this regard, he said, “As far as I am concerned, the team owes no one any more money. I have played here last season too. From me experience, I know that their payment method is great. I hope that this time they will maintain it again.”
Sheikh Jamal’s president Manjur Kader has assured the payment of his cricketers.
