Mushfiqur reveals where his iconic celebration came from
Immediately after the lunch break, Mushfiqur Rahim reached the three digits with a boundary hit. There was no extra excitement in the celebration.
The best batsman in the country did not stop after only a century. The veteran batsman reached the third double century of his career by hitting a boundary just before the end of the day.
Although the level of celebration was quite controlled after the hundred, but after reaching his double century, he celebrated a lot. First, the batsman jumped into the air and jumped to celebrate the double century. Later he took off his helmet, gloves and roared in such a way as to scare anyone.
Naturally, the celebration like an angry and intimidating man raises questions in everyone’s mind. Mushfiqur had done double centuries before, not once but twice.
At the end of the day, Mushfiqur had revealed the reason behind this celebration at the press conference. According to Mushfiqur, he dedicated his third double century to his two-year-old son Mohammad Shahroj Rahim Mayan. He celebrated with a keen interest, as his son liked dinosaur much.
“This double century is for my son. Thinking about him, I really celebrated. Now his favorite thing is a dinosaur. So I was pointing to fear like a dinosaur.”
At the same time, Mushfiqur also said that after completing his century, he thought about the double century. He commented that he was able to reach that milestone with patience and attention on a perfect batting wicket.
He said, “After a hundred, it seemed that two hundred could be done only by keeping the wicket and patience. We usually don’t get such wickets. Today’s wicket was very good for batting. In addition, Zimbabwe’s bowling was not very challenging, really.”
