Jahurul reverse hit brings smile for Dhaka

“Actually I went to go for hitting boundaries in the first two balls on square-leg.  But the deliveries of the Carlos Brathwaite were so quick. Actually his yorkers were so perfect that was my wrong thinking for hitting boundaries. But if I could have hit for single, it would then be perfect.”

“It is I who endangered the team. Later when I was thinking as he succeeded in yorkers, he will then be bowled another yorker and I just think it as a gambling that if he does it, I will then think to hit opposite to third man with the reverse hit. I never played such shot in the match. I used to try to do it in practice. It is first in match.”

Jahurul Islam Omee, wicketkeeper-batsman of Dhaka Dynamites, who lifted the defending champions at the top of the points table in emphatic but typical vein with boundary in the nail-biting fixture, made his revelation to the media at the post-match conference.

The wicketkeeper-batsman appeared at wickets when Dynamites were at precarious 24 for four. He provided ample support to Kieron Pollard whose cameo 55 off 29 that lit up the hopes in Dhaka camp.

Together with youngster Mosaddek Hossain Saikat, the national discard Jahurul slotted the team home. Later Jahurul was adjudged the player of the match.

On his winning shot, the  30-year-old top-order batsman, “The way he was bowling it would be difficult for me to hit on mid-on or mid-off. I have to do it in different way when we needed four off two balls. I had nothing but try to do this. Nothing comes to my mind except this. It has been finished successful. I feel delight with for this.”

Rajshahi-born Omee thought that the way they started the chase I think they should not do it. He said that they could be covered it if they would start a slow start in this important match.

“The batting line-up we have in the team here it is very difficult to get opportunity to bat. Last few matches we, the local players, didn’t get chance in that sense. Their (F.P) strength is more and very good batsmen in T20 format. There is no need to go for cracking in chase of today’s 157 so much from the very beginning,” said Jahurul, who took the rudder after the fall of Pollard while Dhaka were needed 43 off 33 balls.

“If we could start a slow start, it would then be covered. We fell into severe pressure today when I came at the crease we were at 24 for four. It’s a big opportunity for the players the likes of us to play till the end. Pollard did the main work as we needed 14.5 per over that was very difficult for the players like us,” he also said.

“It is possible to do by calculation when it is a matter of 8-9 per over. Actually Pollard’s innings brought us so far. I told Saikat that if we could play till the end of the match, it will then be possible to win it,” he added.

He said that the local players didn’t get chance to bat at the top-order for the team combination.

“There is no meaning of local and foreign. It’s a team. For the team combination, the team management got down players. As the team combination has been done so there is nothing of local and foreign players. All are players,” he said.

“It may happen that they could even bring me to open the proceedings or one-drop. It’s a team planning. They were fielded for their strength. Last match we needed to increase the run-rate so they had been got down in the top-order. As the tournament will be widened so the run-rate should be done better. Actually, we have to admit that those who have come have a big career in T20. They are experienced more than us. Even they played more matches than us. For this reason, they got down batting first,” he viewed.
