Under his captaincy, Bangladesh have been doing wonders for last two and a half years. And whatever Bangladesh have done during this period, there has been a big contribution from Mashrafe.
So, everyone within the Bangladesh cricket fraternity firmly agrees that Mashrafe is one of the main reasons behind Bangladesh’s success.
And now, former India cricketer and now a commentator Ravi Shastri also acknowledged Mashrafe’s contribution to Bangladesh cricket, and thinks the Narail Express deserves the credit.
“Bangladesh are now receiving the honour they deserve, and Mashrafe also deserves a large portion of the credit. He is a great captain. He knows very well about his strengths and weaknesses,” said Shastri.
Shastri was also full of praise about Mashrafe’s tactical knowledge, which makes him even more effective skipper than the others. “He (Mashrafe) can bring up the tactical changes to perfection.
“Bangladesh are now getting the appreciation, and they have earned it. We, the people of the sub-continent, always knew Bangladesh were coming up as a force to be reckoned with. And now the entire world knows it. They are talking about this. Specially after the match against New Zealand. It was such a remarkable performance.”
