Cutter-master Mustafizur Rahman has revealed that he has been mastering on new tricks as the Fizz continues on to do something different. [নিউজটি বাংলায় পড়ুনঃ নতুন বোলিং অস্ত্র নিয়ে আসছেন ফিজ!]
Off-cutter was Mustafizur’s mosg valuable delivery since he arrived in international cricket. However, he hasn’t been at his best rhythm after a shoulder surgery last year. The left-arm bowler who turned 22 on Wednesday is trying new magics in his bowling.
“I tried new things for a few days even though I still didn’t try fully. I tried only half this match.
“Here I’m bowling close to the stumps… now I have to work with a new diversity. It was cutter then. Now I have to do something new,” he said at the press conference.
Mustafizur got three wickets so far in the first innings of the second Test against Australia. He dismissed Matt Renshaw on day two and then dismissed his IPL-mate David Warner and Matthew Wade the next day.
The Fizz dismissed his Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Warner with a quick bouncer. He already bowled a few of them this innings. He is relying on bouncers more now.
“I usually bowl less bouncers. I bowled very few bouncers in my two-year career. Now I have been trying it. It’s better for me if I can bowl two well-directed bouncers. The batsmen will feel uncomfortable,” he added.
