‘Saifuddin will one day win matches for Bangladesh’
In an era where young stars are making their name in International cricket right after their debut, there are some players too who are finding it hard to live up to the expectations. All-rounder Mohammad Saifuddin is one of the man who belongs in this list. [বাংলায় পড়ুনঃ সাইফউদ্দিন একদিন বাংলাদেশকে ম্যাচ জিতাবে- রিয়াদ]
It was Saifuddin’s 5th T20I for Bangladesh today and before that he already had some horrific spells with the ball including one in South Africa where he was smashed 5 sixes in an over by David Miller.
Saifuddin bowled 2 overs today and conceded 33 runs with no wicket under his belt. Despite of consistent failures, Bangladesh stand-in captain Mahmudullah Riyad believes he will one day win matches for Bangladesh.
In the post match press conference, Mahmudullah said: “I think he had a bad game but he couldn’t execute his plans. He didn’t bowl in the lengths for which I set his fields. I think he will work on it. Length was important on this good batting wicket. A bit of room is dangerous here, especially in the Powerplay overs.”
He added: “His bowling isn’t looking bad. He will learn with experience. I believe Saifuddin will one day win matches for Bangladesh. But he has to learn quickly. We win and lose as a team, so no point in blaming Saifuddin. Our whole bowling unit failed, except Nazmul Islam who bowled well for his debut game.”
