‘Dhaka most balanced team’

Sports Reporter

While many considered Dhaka Dynamites and Chittagong Vikings as the favourite teams of the BPL-4, Mashrafe Bin Mortaza chanted the almost same song.

Comilla Victorians skipper tipped Dhaka Dynamites as the most balanced team in BPL-2016 and said that the possibility of the under-rated teams to have won the tournament is more than the stronger sides in T20.
“Dhaka (Dynamites) are ahead more than other teams in term of balance. They have many bowling option as well as batting. They have eight-nine batsmen,” said Mashrafe, whose side derailed from the play-off race.
“But I think, Chittagong at one stage also played well. Both teams have the signs to be champions. Everybody says about this,” Mortaza told newsmen.
“Rajshahi has also been promoted to play-off. They have possibility to win. Actually it would be difficult to predict in T20 which team will be championed. In such tournament, those teams who are remained under-rated become champion to the end,” he added. Mashrafe led teams became champions in the previous three editions of the BPL. This time his side overturned from the group phase. He felt no regret for this though he disappointed.
“It is clear cut that if we could win then it would be possible to go into play-off. But it would be happened if we won then we lost in the last. So there is no gain to be regretted. I am disheartened what is happened. But it has been better what we achieved,” the 32-year-old pacer said.
“This time I will be pleased to see as I became champions in the last three editions. Someone among my fellow will be championed. So there is nothing to be regretted. It is happened in such tournament. I will enjoy especially three play-off and final.” On the other hand, Rangpur Riders coach Javed Omar said that they will try to capitalize the chance if they get it once again.
The way we played the last match we should have confirmed the top-four clash. I don’t know will we get another chance? We played our better cricket throughout the tournament except some worse matches. Thereafter, if we get another chance then we will try out level best to capitalize it,” said Javed Omar.
“We won five in our initial six matches and lost four off our last six matches. Of them, we have nothing to do in two matches. There are lesser opportunities to come back in this format,” Omar told. “Against Rajshahi Kings we played two matches in three days, where we played worse cricket and could not utilize our planning. The current situation has been created from that situation. If we could win any of them then such situation would not be made,” he added.
