We have a lot to learn from our seniors: Mehidy
Bangladesh are set to play their first-ever Test match against Afghanistan and it will be a battle between the spinners as the pitch is likely to be a turner. After a 19-day break, Bangladesh have already started their training for the series.
All-rounder Mehidy Hasan is keeping his ahead for the Test against Afghanistan.
“Every match is challenging, I can’t say particularly if it’s a big or small challenge. Because the better team in the field will win the match. In terms of experience and the last Test matches which we played, we are ahead of them. And also, we will have the home advantage. So we are ahead of them in many aspects,” he said.
Mehidy also had words of praise for his senior cricketers and insisted that they have a lot to learn from them.
“I like the fact that our senior cricketers work really hard, I have seen closely. I have seen Shakib [al Hasan] bhai during the World Cup and he worked really hard for two months during the IPL. Mushfiq bhai (Mushfiqur Rahim) always works really hard. Riyad bhai (Mahmudullah) too. And then Tamim [Iqbal] bhai, may be he could not perform as we expected but he works really hard too.”
“As a junior player, we have a lot to learn from them. The junior members in our team, me, Saifuddin, Mosaddek Hossain, Soumya Sarkar; we all have a lot to learn from the seniors. Because the amount of hard work they do, if we can do the same, I think our team will play better cricket,” he concluded.
