You must be a superstar if your former captain, current coach and a potential talent pinpoint your absence as a setback for them. Well, something similar is happening for Mustafizur Rahman. The rookie took the cricketing world by surprise after making a mesmerising debut against India in 2015, where he picked up 13 wickets in three matches, most by any in history.
Ahead of the historic one-off Test against India in Hyderabad, the left-arm bowler will be missing the action, as he is suffering from a hamstring injury he sustained during the New Zealand tour. With his impact and absence runs parallel to each other, Bangladesh’s fast bowler Taskin Ahmed said ‘Mustafizur will be missed‘.
He said he is a world class bowler and have it in to change the course of the match on his terms.
“Many fast bowlers are coming to the national team now and all of them are highly potential. But it’s true that we’ll miss Mustafiz. He’s a world class fast bowler and can change the course of the match. But unfortunately he is not fit enough and hopefully he will come back and together we will bowl soon.”
Speaking about his thoughts on playing in India, Taskin said they have a point to prove here and with the talented squad they have, they surely can push for it.
“It feels good as we are here for the first time to play a test match. It’s a good opportunity to show the world that we can play well. India is a world famous team and it’s a good opportunity for the young players like us to execute our skills and merits.”
As Bangladesh will be involved in a two-day practice match starting from Sunday, Taskin the game is very important as they will gain momentum heading into an important game, with a lot on their shoulder to take care off. He said conditions here are similar to that in Bangladesh and that they expect the pitch to behave low and slow.
“Tomorrow’s (Sunday) match is really important. We have just returned from New Zealand and the condition is pretty much different from there. In New Zealand, balls carried really well to the keeper but here the track is little bit slow. Tomorrow’s match will really help us to adjust this condition and we are hopeful to utilize it properly.”
India and Bangladesh will face off in a one-off Test starting from February 9.
