He is playing for a team named Victoria and for his consistent good performance he has been named in the Australia U-15 squad. In a recent interview with Shomoy TV, Mehedi said: “I play for Victoria. For my consistent performance, I have been called up in Australia’s u-15 squad. In August, World Cup will be held in South Africa. I am eagerly waiting for that.”

Mehedi also said his inspiration is none other than his father: “I learnt batting from my father. He made me learn everything. What mistakes I do, how can I rectify that, he teached me all these things.”

Though Mehedi is playing in Australia right now, his main aim is to play for his country: “My father played for the country. It will make me feel good if I can follow his footsteps.”

On the other hand, when asked Bulbul said about his son: “In Australia, there are more facilities. The coaches work very passionately and also there is more scopes and chances in Australia. I hope Allah will shower his blessings to him.”
