Mahmudullah Excited to Join Jamaica Tallawahs after Being Dropped from the Test Squad
Bangladesh cricket team is busy preparing for the upcoming Australian series at home, and the board announced the squad for the first Test on Friday.
The surprise omission is of their middle-order mainstay in ODI’s, ‘Mahmudullah’. Mahmudullah along with Mominul Haque has been left out from the squad for the first Test. Nasir Hussain and Shafiul Islam were recalled to replace the duo.
Mahmudullah would be very disappointed on missing out from the squad, but his disarray was cut short, as he was picked by Jamaica Tallawahs to play in the CPL as a replacement of Shakib Al Hasan who has to returned to join the team for the first match scheduled to begin from 27th August.
Mahmudullah is very excited to be the part of the franchise, as he feels this experience of playing in the Caribbean will help him nurture as a cricketer and explore his game even more. The all-rounder will replace his senior in the national team which means he has huge boots to fill.
Mahmudullah is also aware of the fact that he will face a lot of competition inside the dressing room to make it to the playing XI. He said,
“It is true that you won’t be selected just by your name. I know there will be some stiff competition. It will be challenging, and I am looking forward to it.”
Another Bangladeshi who was a part of CPL was Mehedi Hasan; however, he did not get a chance to take on the field for Trinbago Knight Riders. Mahmudullah said,
“I think this kind of tournament will help me to grow as a cricketer as some of the world’s leading players are featuring in it, Cricket in West Indies is something that I [have] always enjoyed because of the way they celebrate the game. The atmosphere itself gives you different kind of feeling.”
Mahmudullah will leave for the Caribbean on 22nd August.
