Just when Saifuddin was forgetting the nightmare, it has haunted him back again and this time its Darren Sammy in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL). This was even worse as he conceded 32 runs in an over.
The interesting thing is he was on fire before bowling his last over. He picked up three wickets and conceded just 18 runs in his first three overs. But in the end, his last over changed everything.
This must have made the bowler’s moral down again but opposition team Rajshahi Kings’ batsman Luke Wright believes there is nothing to be sad for just 1 over.
In the press conference after the match, he said: “It is actually tough for a bowler. After such an over it is always difficult to comeback in that match. I hope he didn’t remember Miller’s over too. As a cricketer, there is no time to think of such things. Moreover, there is nothing to be sad for just one over. He will comeback strongly I believe. Saif is a dedicated cricketer.”
He added: “This is a big experience for Saif. He has to take lessons from it. He has to work on his skills at nets. This happens on cricket. He is a very good bowler.”
When asked to say something about his skipper Sammy’s innings, Wright said: “He is one of the best in the world. He is doing this for a long time. I think Saifuddin should have tried variations. Though he must have tried and as a result most of the balls were wide and short. But Sammy has a good experience of batting like this before.”
