After Bangladesh registered the remarkable win over Sri Lanka in the second and final Test in Colombo by four wickets in their overall 100th Test, the delighted Tigers skipper Mushfiqur Rahim has dedicated the epic victory to all the supporters of his national team by stating the die-hard fans always play an impressive role in boosting team’s morale.

“Supporters always play a major role behind the progress of Bangladesh team. I am dedicating the win to all of them,” Rahim was quoted as saying by bdcrictime.com.

While talking during the post-match press conference wicket-keeper batsman Rahim expressed the players proved to excel on away tour after delivering the satisfactory result at home which further will help while building up for the upcoming games.

“The win is indeed a great achievement for Bangladesh to boost our confidence and provide inspiration for future games. It has proved our ability to do well in foreign soil as well,” Rahim added.

The right-handed batsman Mushfiqur Rahim urged to do well for the Bangladesh before reiterating they are eyeing to keep their nation happy.

“I think, we can return them something, I am feeling better for it. We always try to do better. We will try to do better more in future,” Rahim remarked.

However, following the drama after all-rounder Mahmudullah Riyad was dumped for the second Test, the visitors’ supporters criticised the team for failing to deliver the results and showing the stability in the team.

“When we play bad they criticize us. But support was here as well. They supported us always,” Rahim concluded.

Bangladesh made an impressive comeback after suffering a 259-run loss against the Lankan lions during the first Test in Galle.

Bangladesh’s camp was jubilant when all-rounder Mehedi Hasan Miraz scampered for a double – to see players attending the post-series ceremony as the Joy Bangla Cup Test series was levelled 1-1.

Since making his debut in 2005, Rahim has played 45 Tests in which he had registered 3,265 runs at an average of 35.48. The Bogra-born batsman has smashed five hundreds and 17 fifties in the longer version of the game.

On the other side, the three-match One-day International series will kickstart from March 25.
