People take him as a precursor of Shakib Al Hasan. But Miraz doesn’t like the speculation. In Bdcrictime Eid special live adda, Miraz commented on this.
“Actually there is no comparison of Shakib with anyone. He has given a lot for Bangladesh team. He is a living legend and an idol to me. I have grown up watching him playing. When we see him playing, we get motivated and we feel that we will rule the cricket someday,”
Although, Shakib is Idol to the youngster, but Miraz likes Mushfiqur Rahim for his batting. He confessed that he likes to bat with Mushfiqur Rahim. Before he entered the national team he used to bat like Mushfiqur Rahim, that’s why people call him ‘Little Mushfiq’.
“I like Mushfiq Bhai the most, for his batting style. I find him different from others. I enjoy a lot if I get scope to bat with him. In fact, we have couple of good partnership together. People says I bat like Mushfiqur Rahim, that’s why everyone calls me by his name,” the 22-year old Miraz added.
