5 things Mustafizur should focus on to continue his magical rise

Being a shy, skinny left-arm fast bowler hailed from a village near Satkhira on the south-west border, Mustafizur has enjoyed an outstanding rise. A unique kind of cricketing pop-stardom, with an embodiment of the T20 world: the little-known kid from the village steps into the franchise stellar-sphere. You will be surprised to know that the boy from Tetulia is right now the most Googled person in Bangladesh.

So what made Mustafizur so famous? Mainly this is because of his method. He isn’t that much quick. He doesn’t want to swing the ball much or have a lethal bouncer. He is rather more of an everyday statistically freaky medium-pacer. He comes with his own superpower in a subtle and apparently devastating mystery variation.

Bolstered with a freakish supple wrist which can actually snap through 90 degrees at the time of releasing the ball, Mustafizur has realized he can dictate the white ball to jump and stop suddenly without any change of action once the shine has scuffed. It is an inborn talent, a cutter he practiced in the nets while also weaning himself out of hopping on the wrong foot. It also works quite effectively.

Mustafizur is a rare breed of bowler. Barring fitness and form, he will ignite the club v country debate frequently in the coming years. He just has to be guided in a proper way, following the right signals in order to enjoy the freedom to express himself.

So, will he be able to hold on to his golden run of form? There are different factors with can ultimately determine his future in the fast bowling arena.

Let’s take a quick look at those intriguing factors.

Yusuf Pathan wins first match in Dhaka Premier League with a blistering 60

After a decent outing in the recently concluded Indian Premier League, Kolkata Knight Riders all-rounder Yusuf Pathan made his debut in the Dhaka Premier League (DPL) One-Day tournament with a match-winning knock despite arriving late for the match after being stuck in traffic.

It was as usual business for Pathan as he notched a “blistering 60” (47 balls, 7×4, 2×6) to guide Abahani Limited to a 5-wicket against Prime Bank Cricket Club at Bangladesh Krira Shikkha Protisthan (BKSP-3) ground on Wednesday. Pathan’s big knock powered his new team to chase down 241 in 44.3 overs.

Ironically the Indian hard-hitter’s debut almost didn’t happen because of Bangladesh’s traffic woes. Pathan arrived 41 minutes late after the match had started. However, he was allowed to play. He was stuck on Dhaka-Savar highway. “I was looking forward to playing these two matches before Ramadan. The team has won (yesterday) and this will work as an advantage as they move forward in the competition. I am happy that I have performed and added around 60 runs to the board,” Pathan was quoted as saying in a report.

“The wicket is different. Back home we have something else, there the fast bowlers take charge at the beginning but here the spinners start with the new ball. It felt that teams here play according to the merit of the wicket. The experience has been new for me,” he further. This was Abahani’s 3rd straight win in the league. The team is captained by Tamim Iqbal. Shakib Al Hasan also plays for Abahani.

The explosive batsman from Baroda scored 361 runs in 15 matches at an average of 72.20 and a strike rate of 145.56 in this year’s IPL.

While we saw some brilliant performances from KKR skipper Gautam Gambhir and all-rounder Andre Russell, it was Yusuf Pathan who won the hearts for shouldering the burden of an underperforming middle-order. Pathan, who is known to be a maverick for his batting, displayed great responsibility this season and rescued the team from several difficult situations.

The most amazing aspect of his performance was the fact that he did all this without compromising any of the aggressive instincts that he is known for.

After being overlooked by selectors for the Zimbabwe tour, Yusuf chose to take his talent to the Dhaka Premier League (DPL), which is Bangladesh’s domestic 50-overs tournament.

DPL also features the likes of Manoj Tiwary, Manvinder Bisla, Jalaj Saxena, Ashok Menaria and Rajat Bhatia.

5 changes that can amaze the fans in IPL 2017

IPL 2016 has been quite an eventful season this time around. While it was the good things that people took note off, there were some sad events as well that caused controversies. With an aim to make IPL 2017 an even bigger hit and avoid many of those man made issues, listed further are 5 improvements that we would wish to see in IPL 2017 – after all it is Cricket that wins in the end.

IPL 2017 News

  1. No signing off the players – IPL 2017

Somewhere around the mid-season of 2016, many of you must have heard that teams have signed off players (read as younger players) from the team. Mainly because all the teams has chosen their key 18-20 players and were sure that the rest wouldn’t get a chance to play. But our question is – was giving youngsters a chance to play the only reason IPL was formed? No.

Even if a youngster doesn’t get a chance to play, he still gets to share the dressing room with the likes of MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar and many others. The experience of sharing the dressing with such talents is no less than learning by playing a game. Therefore, from IPL 2017 no player should be signed off (unless there is a valid reason).

  1. Introduction of Bonus Points – IPL 2017

We saw teams winning from huge margins this season. Be it a win in less than 15 overs or win with a margin of over 100 runs. Huge wins like these can’t be appreciated by net run rate alone. It can rather be appreciated by awarding an additional bonus point to the winning team.

This will not only make the tournament more exciting, but also keep all the teams in the fray for the play-offs spot till the very end. As we were sure that each match will only fetch two points this season, there wasn’t much excitement left for teams at 7th and 8th spot. But with an opportunity to get that additional point, players would go all out in crunch situations.

  1. Alternative to Duckworth-Lewis Method – IPL 2017

If there is one rule that has been in controversies in the sport of cricket across all the formats – then that is Duckworth / Lewis or the D/L Method. This method is said to offer an advantage to the chasing side. Latest person to lash out at the use of this method was former New Zealand Captain Stephen Fleming. We feel a need for look out should begin throughout the world to come up with a more reliable method at times of rain/delay.

  1. Decision Review System – IPL 2017

One man who had been unlucky in IPL 2016 was Quinton de Kock. Couple of times he was wrongly given out and on both occasions, DRS or Decision Review System could have saved him. DRS system has been opposed mainly by Indian team and the BCCI, as it is not reliable to get accurate decisions.

With BCCI being one of the richest board of cricket, we expect them to invest in a technology that is better than DRS. With so many technological advancements, it is now time for India to be leaders than followers. If something is not good, let’s build something better, test it at one of the biggest platforms – IPL. This will make the sport error-free and more exciting as we get to see fair results.

  1. Mid-Season Transfer Window – IPL 2017

How many matches did the likes of Dale Steyn, Trent Boult, Kane Williamson, Martin Guptill, Imran Tahir get to play this season? Hardly any. But these players could any day be featured in any of the world’s best teams. To ensure that players of such caliber don’t get wasted – we suggest to have a Mid-Season Transfer Window.

Dale Steyn wasn’t fitting into the combination of GL team, then he could have easily been transferred to a team like RCB who badly needed a pace bowler and they ended up singing Chris Jordan in the end. Introducing this system will make the team management value their players and chose only the right players for their team.

These are the 5 changes that we propose to bring in to the rulebook of IPL 2017. All the suggestions mentioned above are personal and you are completely free to share your views on the same and also suggest if there is any change that you would like to see in IPL 2017?
