Ready to take the challenge- Mushfiqur

Proteas injuries will give us edge: MushfiqurAfter the practice match against CSA XI Bangladesh Cricket team is now waiting and preparing themselves for the main match against CSA National team. Heading to that Captain Mushfiqur and team Bangladesh is very confident.

It will be tough for Bangladesh to play against Proteas in their home ground in such an unknown fast bowl friendly field condition. But Mushfiqur said, “Bangladesh is ready to take the challenge.”

Recently in an interview to local media Mushfiqur said, “Obviously the flat wicket will be a challenge for us but we are ready to take that challenge.”

He added, “I know how tough the condition here for the visitors. Wickets here change faces time to time and their best team is going to play against us.”

The guest team has to cope up with the condition of wicket here and Bangladesh will do that, thinks Mushfiqur. He also said, “We know that the guest team here fall into problems for this fast wicket. We also have to adjust to this condition. Boys are ready to give their best and we want to show the world that we can play even in this condition out of home. Though SA is a strong team, we are ready to take face the challenge.”

Mushfiqur expressed that in the practice session players are trying to adjust with the unfriendly condition. He said, “We are trying to adjust fast. They don’t have Villiers, Steyn and Philander playing for them this time, I think this would keep us one step ahead. It’s a great chance for us.”

South Africa is the land for pacers but still Captain expects that spinners of Bangladesh will do well here. He said, “I expect that many of the spinners will do well in this condition. If they can bowl perfectly they may change the fate of the match. I am hopeful that we will shine.”
He also added, “We haven’t played many matches out of home but in last two and half years we have developed much as a team. This might be the next step for us.”
