Captaining in the two versions of cricket in Bangladesh, Mashrafe Bin Mortaza and Mushfiqur Rahim has been long time friends and partners but in domestic cricket, the duo shared opponent dressing rooms until Legends of Rupganj signed both of them in the team. The franchise has already picked two wins in the ongoing edition of Dhaka Premier League (DPL). [নিউজটি বাংলায় পড়ুনঃ মাশরাফির অনুরোধেই রূপগঞ্জের অধিনায়কত্ব নিয়েছিলেন মুশফিক]
Bangladesh Test captain Mushfiqur Rahim said he is enjoying the ride with limited over captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza. On Monday, after the match against Sheikh Jamal at Savar BKSP, Mushfiqur Rahim manifested his thrill for taking the captaincy from Mashrafe Bin Mortaza.
“It is highly satisfactory to play with Mashrafe; this is the first time we play together in club cricket. He requested me to take over the captaincy from him so that he could be mentally relaxed. When a person like him bequests any responsibility to anyone, it is awfully inspiring to release more than hundred percent. I will try my best to do better in the upcoming matches” – Mushfiqur Rahim said.
The newly appointed captain Mushfiqur Rahim is also running consistency in his batting; he said, “The national team cricketers have to perform well; everyone wants us to perform better than others. Scoring runs in these matches enhances the level of confidence. I will try to score more runs in the coming matches.”
After the breathtaking 75 runs in the first match as a captain for Legends of Rupganj, Mushfiqur Rahim scored a century in the second match building up a record 225 run partnership with Naem Islam.
