Anamul Haque Bijoy scored his first double century in the 1st class cricket league. He faced 356 balls during his innings. Among them he knocked out the ball 20 times into the boundary with 18 fours and 2 huge sixes.
Though the match between Khulna-Rangpur got attention for another reason. The ODI skipper of Bangladesh, Mashrafee Bin Mortaza wear the White Shirt after a long three and a half years.
But, there was a tremendous contribution of Mashrafee behind this extraordinary performance of Anamul. Recently in a press conference Anamul stated that behind his double century, the “Narail Express” has played a vital role.
Anamul said, ”At the first day Mashrafee bhai told me not to panic. After the first innings when Rangpur scored 471, he told me he wants a ton from me as the pitch was in favor of batting. From his saying I got inspiration. Not only a century, got a double century. While returning from field he showed his gratitude towards me“.
Meanwhile, Anamul is thinking to make his team champion in the National League. In this season he wants to play out of his skin to make his team take the crown.
In this case Anamul said,’’My only aim now is to make my team the champion. It is a big challenge to me. I just want to play my level best.’’
To be noted, from last two years the wicket-keeper batsman is out of the national squad. However, he is trying to overcome his weak zones and to get back to Bangladesh team again to represent the side in the world cricket again.
