The T20 World Cup is knocking at the door. The Bangladesh team will leave the country tonight with a youth-oriented team. Former T20 captain Mahmudullah Riyad did not get a place in the World Cup team. But he wishes good luck to the team.
Not just good wishes, Riyad's dream is very big. Even if he can't go to the World Cup, he believes that the team is capable of becoming champions.
Riyad had to talk about cricket under media pressure by attending the hockey franchise tournament. Congratulating the team for going to the World Cup, Riyad said, “I always hope our team will do well. My best wishes always remain. May our team perform well. We (players) also want to be champions. Why not?”
The cricket franchise league Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) has gained a lot of reputation in the sports arena of the country. Hockey franchise league will also bring the same joy, Riyad thinks. ”I think it will be good. The BPL we play is a very good tournament. One of the best tournaments in Bangladesh. Now the franchise tournament is starting in hockey too,” he added.
Riyad also tried to become a hockey player during his school life. But in the end, he became a cricketer. Talking about his memories of hockey, Riyad further said, “One memory about hockey was a school tournament in class 7 or 8. I went 1-2 days for selection. In those 1-2 days, I tried the hockey stick. This is my memory of hockey. Alhamdulillah I am still in cricket as I didn’t get selected for the hockey that day.”
