There will be good contest in the series: BCB President
He said, ” “We have no Shakib Al Hasan in the middle order. And now there is no Mushfiqur Rahim. We’ll miss him badly in the series.
“He is the most dependable batsman of our team and he was always. In this BPL he proved that he is the best. If we think that way, he will be badly missed. Another thing is Shakib is not there. So it is unfortunate that we missed both of them,”
Mushfiqur has been in blistering form in the just completed Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League (BBPL). In 14 matches of the tournament, Mushfiqur amassed 491 runs. He also registered his highest T20 score in this tournament which was just two runs short of a hundred.
However, BCB President ushered high hopes for the team saying they can beat Pakistan in the away series.
“Still we think that there will be good contest in the series. They [Pakistan] also expected us to fight against them. Bangladesh should win,” he said.
“Tamim is back after a long time and didn’t play badly. Liton Das has been in form and Afif also played well. There are the likes of Shanto, Naim Sheikh who showed their capability.
“The courage and the spirit that is required to win the T20 game, I saw it in them. So I think if they can continue the BPL performance, it would be enough for us,” Nazmul concluded.
