In a recent talking, India’s former captain legendary batsman Sunil Gavaskar has also voiced praise notes for the young ‘cutter – master.’ In a Sony Six program of Indian Premier League, Gavaskar reckoned the necessity of Mustafizur Rahman in the team.
“I think in this stage of the tournament, where you have to fight for entering into the next stage, one should select the best eleven they have. I am not saying that Nabi is not that good, but you should choose someone who have more experience, like Mustafizur Rahman” – Gavaskar said.
But defending champion Sunrisers Hyderabad allowed Mustafizur Rahman to play a single match in the part of the tournament where he was available.
Finding out the reason for this, Sunil Gavaskar said, “They might not play Mustafizur as other foreign bowlers have been showing good performance. They have three new ball bowlers in hand and they thought these bowlers could do the necessary job.”
“Sunrisers have Rashid Khan in their team so when they went for another, they might chose Mohammad Nabi. Rashid Khan is a leg spinner and Mohammad Nabi is an off – spinner, the combination brings variations in bowling line – up” – Sunil Gavaskar added.
