“If you consider all the generations, then I can choose three batsmen as the best ever. First, there was Raqibul Hasan. Then there was Minhajul Abedin Nannu. Then, among the current generation, I will choose Mushfiqur Rahim,” he was quoted as saying on Dhaka Tribune.
However, the Bangladesh cricket legend also said if he had to pick only one cricketer he would pick former Bangladesh captain as well as the current chief selector of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), Minhajul Abedin Nannu.
“I think these three for me are the best as right-handed batsmen in three different eras. And about Nannu bhai I can say he is the all time best. I think he was always a complete batsman. I have learnt a lot from him,” Bulbul added.
Meanwhile, the first Test centurion of Bangladesh cricket shared the memories of that inaugural Test where he had created history. “I don’t know whether it’s the best innings of my career or not. But one thing I can say, it was a signature innings in my life. A lot of people helped me at that time,”
He further added, “The captain at that time, Naimur Rahman Durjoy told the selectors that I should have been picked for the first Test. Eddie Barlow and Ashraful bhai were also there. I also thank my batting partners during that innings, Pilot, Durjoy, Sumon, and [Hasibul Hossain] Shanto. They helped me a lot to play that innings and scoring those runs.”
