Sammy praises Sabbir Rahman
Rajshahi Kings, outclassed Khulna Titans by a huge margin of defeat in qualifier match today. The Kings chased down the target of 125 runs in the last over of the match with 4 balls yet to spare. An unbeaten knock between Sabbir Rahman and Franklin took them over the line with ease.
Both the batsmen batted exceedingly well adding 62 runs for the fourth wicket. Sabbir Rahman stayed not for a match winning knock of 43 runs in the knock out match in Mirpur.
Captain Darren Sammy was very happy with the effort of his team. He was particularly happy about the way Sabbir Rahman, who scored a responsible 52-ball 43, played in the crucial fixture, “I didn’t want to change his batting or style of cricket. I just asked the guys to be responsible. It’s not about anyone’s ego, it’s about the team. Yeah, they had some issues, I have dealt with that.
He also added, “I had a word with Sabbir. I told him, well played, that was very responsible, now let’s do that again. The Kings is about a family. Once I came here and saw the guys, I knew that we were going to win. I have told the owners that we have come here with a mission and nothing is going to distract us.”
Earlier, Sabbir Rahman started the season brilliantly. He scored his maiden twenty/20 hundred in the third match of the season. This is also the only hundred in tournament so far. The very next match he scored 46. But since then he did not had any remarkable score. The team was very disappointed with performance of their icon cricketer. Instead he got involved in controversy and was fined heavily twice by the referee and BCB.
