Bangladesh’s pace sensation Mustafizur Rahman has taken this season’s Indian Premier League (IPL) by storm. Not only that he has been the revelation of this season, he has also been the most popular and most talked about cricketer of the entire tournament. Whenever the commentators are getting chance, they are discussing about the cutter master. Mustafizur and his cutters, slowers and yorkers have also become a must-say topic in the press briefings and personal interviews.
Such has been the Fizz’s dominance with the ball in hand that he has even overshadowed the likes of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers many a times on course of the tournament. And now after winning people’s heart, the wonder kid is on his way to winning a great individual record as well. Like the previous years, the tournament authority has once again arranged a poll to determine the best emerging player of the season. Of the five nominees, Mustafizur is also one. Others on the list are: Shivil Kaushik, Jasprit Bumrah, Kane Richardson and Murugan Ashwin.
But according to the number of votes cast till now, others are nowhere near Mustafizur. While the baby-faced Bangladeshi poster boy has received a whopping 90.9% votes, his nearest contenders Shivil Kaushik and Jasprit Bumrah has 3.9% and 3.7% votes respectively.
