Mahmudullah urges fans to forgive for 2016 incident
Bangladesh T20 captain Mahmudullah Riyad urges to fans and his countrymen to forgive him and his team member for the unwanted incident that happened back in 2016, where Bangladesh cricket team lost to India by only one run despite having much opportunities to bounce back a victory.
In 2016 World Cup, the group match on March 23, at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore will go down in history as one of the closest matches ever played in shortest format. The Bangladesh team were in the game till the last over, or effectively till the last ball of the match.
But premature celebrations and pursuit of glorious shots did them in, showing their lack of maturity. Only 2 runs needed at that time with 3 balls while there were one of the greatest batsman Mushfiqur Rahim and one of the greatest finisher Mahmudullah Riyad was on the pitch. But they couldn’t make it and consequently Bangladesh lost the match by one run.
Mahmudullah has urged the fans to forgive themselves for that match, when he was asked about, if he was given a chance to rectify a mistake, which one that would be, in a Facebook live session with Bdcrictime.com. In the reply Mahmudullah told about the mistake that silenced the whole Bangladesh in 2016.
“Probably I won’t do the mistake that I made in 2016. It was a learning lesson for me. Probably the biggest learning lesson in my career. People learn from mistakes and it was a unforgivable mistake. It has hurt innumerous people and I feel sorry for that and I hope people will forsake it for that Incident,” Mahmudullah said.
