Mustafizur Rahman, the cutter master of world cricket who is now in India to play for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the ongoing 10th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), has recently given an exclusive interview to India’s leading daily Times of India, where he has expressed his desire to be remembered as a a “good human being” even if he does not make it to cricketing folklore.

“I never let success get into my head. You guys keep asking me about being something big, great talent and so on… I am unfazed,” Mustafizur said, before adding, “If I cannot become a great cricketer, I will at least want to be remembered as a good human being.” [Read also: Tamim’s new record and milestone]
In the World T20 last year, Mustafizur displayed his variation of cutters in the Super 10 match against New Zealand at the Eden Gardens, returning 5-22.
“In this format of the game (T20), you need variations. Every bowler will have his stock ball. But you need to vary your deliveries in order to get success,” the soft-spoken 21-year-old said.
During Bangladesh’s last bilateral series against Sri Lanka, the Fizz picked up eight wickets in two Tests, six in three ODIs and four in two T20 games.
“I am happy with my ODI bowling (against Sri Lanka). What I wanted was not happening and I could not get the ball in the right areas. The length was a problem too. In the last ODI, I was getting back my rhythm I thought, and T20s was fine I would say” he said.
