Personally not happy with my performance: Mustafizur
Seeing the wickets in England, it looked like Mustafizur’s cutter won’t be effective, but the fast bowler made it effective and picked up most of his wickets by bowling cutters.
“I am 50 percent happy. If I could have given less runs then [probably it would have been 100 percent]. Five wickets are always memorable, it stays in the mind. It’s the fifth time I got five wickets in a match in my career. Once in T20s. Five wickets are always special. Back to back five wickets hauls in the World Cup, it’s definitely something to rejoice. Considering the strength of the Indian batting lineup, those five wickets gave me more satisfaction. But I don’t want to say which wicket gave me more satisfaction because all wickets are important to me,” he said.
However, Mustafizur still regrets for not bowling well in his first spell and wants to work on his swing.
“With the new ball swing is important. My ball doesn’t swing that much. Sometimes it does but not that much. Many bowlers get natural swing, it doesn’t happen with me. I have to work on that so that I can get the inswing.”
“Everyone is saying that I am doing well in the slog overs. But personally I am not happy. I could have done a bit better. If I had more variations it would have been great. I am bowling cutters but my yorkers are 50-50. If the accuracy of yorkers gets better then I would do better in the death overs. I think playing more T20s will help accuracy while bowling in the last ten overs of a one-day game,” he concluded.
