Miraj praises Mustafiz for intelligent bowling

Sports Reporter, Dhaka

Mehidy Hasan Miraj, the captain of Rajshahi Kings on Sunday said that they had belief in winning the match against holders Rangpur Riders in their fourth and last fixture of the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) in Dhaka.

Miraj also said that their high hopes to win the encounter started floating just after the dismissal of the dangerman Chris Gayle, Mohammad Mithun and Ravi Bopara.   

Rajshahi Kings came back in the stiff race of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) and finished the first phase in Dhaka with an exciting victory that they scripted beating Chris Gayle-inspired Rangpur Riders.

Now the Kings placed fifth in the BPL points-charts above Sylhet Sixers and Khulna Titans, who are yet to make any victory in their four-match first phase in Dhaka.

“Actually we had belief from the beginning to win the match because our bowling unit is very good. We had belief that Mustafiz and Udana helped them bounce them back. I was there with Hafeez bhai and Sunny bhai in the bowling line-up,” said Mehidy Hasan Miraj, who is the youngest captain in BPL folklore.

“The belief got stronger while Gayle was out before Mithun bhai. They lost another foreigner in the meantime. The lacking we had if we could overcome it, in that case, the performance would then be better further,” Miraj told media at his post-match reaction.

The 20-year-old spin all-rounder said that they had chances to make bigger score on the board as they fell 20-30 runs short of it.

“Our batsmen could not make more runs in that way especially foreign player,” the promising all-rounder said.

“It would be better if our local players scored big knock. Then it’s good that we won the match,” he also said.

“Today Zakir (Hasan) batted really well. Our score would be bigger more than 135. We fell short of 20-30 runs to put on the board,” he added.

Kings pace spearhead Mustafizur Rahman handled the situation through his tight bowling performance that actually brought the much-needed victory for us. He didn’t allow Forhad Reza any run from his initial four balls of the penultimate over.    

When asked about talking with Mustafiz just one ball before the exciting finish, Miraj said, “I’ve tried to tell Mustafiz not to hear the words or suggestion of Soumya bhai or Hafeez bhai or me. He should bowl in his own way what he plans to do because he’ll miss his own thing if he keeps three of us in his mind.”

“I just told him that you set your fielding and bowl in your own way. For that reason we could have won the match. I know what type of bowler and man Mustafiz is,” he added.
