Mushfiqur to take final decision after practice match

Mushfiqur wishes to have more pace strengthIt has been a long contention in Bangladesh cricket whether it would be wise for Test skipper Mushfiqur Rahim to act in the team only as a batsman or to run along with the responsibility of wicket keeper as well.

Mushfiqur, prior to leave the country for South Africa, said, the particular decision for the forthcoming series will be taken after the only practice match before the Test series.

“There will be a three day practice match. After that I will talk with team management and decide whether it would be good for the team to place me only as the batsman or as a wicket keeper as well,” Bangladesh Test skipper.

He also said, “We have good opportunity to play well in all three formats of the game in South Africa despite our quite inexperienced bowling line up. But our bowlers have skill, if they will be able to bowl up to plan, I think Proteas batsmen would struggle.”
